The weird thing is I think Kyrie fit better with Lebron than D-Wade did. However with Jason Tatum it was a complete nightmare and Jason Tatum isn't that bad.

I absolutely hate it when people say he’s a top 3 PG in the league. He’s far from it. He only has a game that looks good and appeals to fans. But his game is not conducive to winning. He’s a great scorer, he’s not a great point guard, and that automatically gives him negative points on being a leader.

Max you're no Einstein, you act like you have a genius IQ ,you talk sports, not science physics, I believe Kyrie did go to school, so he has some knowledge, remember you can't judge a book by the cover, you have to actually read it, to my knowledge max ,you're not a professional Therapist like Dr. Phil, fall back when questioning someone's intellect,

Stephen A is just an NBA player people pleaser. Staying on a star player's good side is his no. 1 goal,whilst throwing in token criticism.

Well that’s already proven he can’t lead a team with the talent this man has the most ungraudable player I ever seen he moves defenders open up no matter how tight he’s going to have to prove people wrong that he can lead people say steph is better cause steph lead that’s what makes you a all time great you have to lead with kyrie s skill an he still has a ring unlike ai but he hasn’t proved his leadership at all to go down as an all time great although his skill set can easily make him one if he retires an does not lead a team to a ring where he’s the first option on a winning team I can’t make him that high on the list

KD is over rated, and he needed the Wariors to get a championship. They didn't need him. Kyrie was Robbin to Lebron and could help the NETS but the problem is KD is overrated!!!!!

Kyrie isn't a leader. He said he'd stay in Boston. Lie. Not that we want him anyway. He is an okay player but he can't even tough it out through injuries or put the team on your back. In the words of Shaq man up and put some icy hot on it lol

All the people that disagree would follow Kyrie right off a cliff. This dude never show leadership qualities, so how does he get Leadership position in NBPA as vp?

Kyrie: "I want my own team" Kyrie: "Wow, I finally get it. LeBron put up with a lot" Kyrie: "I'm teaming up with KD" Translation: "This is harder than I thought. Time to be #2 again"

Basically, if we was trying to build people up, there would be none of these questions. If someone is sucking and they know it, encourage them to train harder. Tell them that's the only way it'll come. Train, train, train.

Perk started off a good tv personality, but now he comes across as to judgmental; especially being a former player. He needs to fall back off Kyrie. Just because you have something to say you don't always have to say it.

Let me just add my two cents. Kyrie is a chemistry killer on and off the court. He uses the media as his platform to criticize his teammates. That is not leadership wisdom. Moreover he has been injured most of his NBA career. He is very fragile and an injury waiting to happen. First he left Cleveland to lead his own team. However he threw his new teammates under the bus. He said he was staying in Boston, but afterwards was run out of town. Now he is doing the same thing in Bklyn, by using the media to criticize his teammates. How does he expect his teammates to respond to his antics? He alienates his teammates wherever he goes. He just got to Bklyn and is now rubbing his teammates the wrong way. His antics are not profitable going forward. He seems to be a cancer on a team.
