He probably doesn't want to play in Cleveland.

I think the title of this thread should be...

Are Kyrie investors getting worried yet?

Collectors should care less. A true collector collects his team/player because they truly enjoy collecting, not because cards are an "investment."

Picture somebody walking the ball up the court each time, and doing one of two things:
1.) Passing it to a post player who will take an eighteen foot jump shot or dribble of his foot.
2.) Pass it to Dion Waiters.

Both 1 and 2 are followed by Kyrie walking to a corner and waiting for the play to finish.

And, repeat.

That is Kyrie in the first three quarters.

And the Cavs as a whole, and as a reminder I say this as a Cavs fan, were terrible. Turnover after turnover, indecisive play after play, and getting out-rebounded led to an insane amount of second chances.

Whether or not it is his fault makes no difference, there has to be a better man for the job than Mike Brown.

His career coaching record a 314-167, 65% win percentage, and a coach of the year. Ur right, he's terrible.

In my opinion he is terrible and will never win a championship. He couldn't win a ring with LBJ or Kobe. When he did win coach of the year I felt he should have been fired because of the horrible playoff perfomance. I don't think Spolestres(sp?) Is a good coach either and he has won two rings so far. You gonna spew stats at me and tell me my opinion is wrong? Lol! My opinion is MINE! You are not gonna change what 20 years of basketball knowledge I have obtained by puking stats at me.

Have fun with your loser coach in Cleveland, how many times will he get fired from the Cavs? You might have the Billy Martin of basketball on your hands, lol.

I'm just trying give you something to think about. Stats are what you should base your opinions off of. By simply saying he is and was always a terrible coach is a rediculous statement. If he was that bad, the lakers never would have hired him. His team had the best regular season record in the league the last two years he coached cleveland and with what supporting cast around Lebron?. He had a better record coaching the Lakers than mike D'Antoni. Who else is a terrible coach in your opinion? I'm curious.

You have a point and I was harsh calling him terrible, but I still don't think he is a good coach. I already said Eric Spolestres(sp?). He's not terrible but I. Would have loved to see Phil Jackson in Miami after the Heat lost to the Mavs in the finals.

D'Antoni isn't to good either but he definitly had the Suns overacheiving when he was there.

Cavs need to have an up tempo offense. They have all these young guys who should be able to run the court well.

Adding Bynum reminds me a lot of when the Suns picked up Shaq. It just didn't make much sense and didn't work.

Kyrie looked like he was bored 75% of the game.

Shaq dropped 40 points when he played in Phx. I don't think Bynum can do that

He's certainly not the slouch that most people say he is, but he's also not as good as his regular season record would portray him to be. He's really smart when it comes to defensive X's and O's. Probably one of the best in the league. He's not so good on the other end.

I like how he's handling the personnel this year. He hasn't been afraid to bench the #1 pick, he got in Kyrie's face last night, he's mixed up the lineup and played guys who've earned the minutes. I'm not a Cleveland fan, but Aggrey Sam, a Bulls beat reporter confirmed a few of those things on Twitter last night and said he's been much "edgier" this year. I'm sure everyone would like better results but let's not go into panic mode on Kyrie and the Cavs after 2 weeks. It won't take much to get the 7th/8th seed in the East this year.
