Not a day goes by when the NBA isn’t fun. Even during the offseason, rumors, reports, and signings spark reactions all over the world.
And NBA Twitter… had some things to say about a potential trade.
PLOT TWIST … what if Kevin Durant withdraws his trade request after Kyrie gets traded?! 😭😭😭

If Durant gets traded, they may never step in the same locker room; they may never cross paths at the practice facility. I don't know what BKN would decide with Westbrook. But if a Russ-for-Kyrie deal happens first, for a brief, fleeting moment Russ & KD would be back together.

Kyrie had us on a list and was looking for sign and trade options and we told him no thanks. That still crushes my soul

Lakers did everything wrong and are going to turn Westbrook into kyrie Irving

The Heat must really not want Irving OR they have a lot of confidence in Durant/Mitchell.

KD and Kyrie really showed up unbidden on the Nets doorstep, barely played together and drove the whole thing into the ground in almost exactly three years.

There’s no way the Nets willingly put out a Westbrook & Ben Simmons lineup.
There’s gotta be a 3rd team involved who takes Westbrook…only question is who?

If I’m in the nets I’m giving up the house for Russel Westbrook with all due respect once in a lifetime type of player triple double king 🔥🙏💯

Me: Hey Google! What's the NBA's single-game rebound record?
Me: Wanna be prepared just in case Ben and Russ do actually play together, you know?
Google: Got it! Wilt Chamberlain once grabbed 55 rebounds in a single game.

you can potentially flip Russ for Kyrie and won’t do it bc you don’t want to take on Joe Harris’ contract???????

A Russ-Simmons Nets team is pretty much my worst nightmare

Y’all believe me now about kyrie going to la

If Nets don't refer to the Russell (Westbrook) – (Ben) Simmons pairing as the "Def Lineup" then what are we even doing.

Im so glad Lakers Twitter isn’t the GM 🤣 y’all ready to give the nets whatever they want. Y’all on your knees begging like Keith sweat. Relax 😭 Lakers because of Kyrie have more leverage than you give them credit for. They’ll get a deal done.
