    It would be awesome if we got Vince and Lebron to the dunk contest along with Dwight, and then have diallo, Aaron Gordon n zack Lavine or Derrick Jones Jr for a 6 man dunk contest! Old school and new school combined
    Then the following year we should have blake griffin and Zion enter

    Kyrie was -26 and LeBron was +26 that was because Kyrie minutes were matched with LeBron's. Nets don't have enough defensive talent to match any good team in the NBA right now.

      random gaming videos 2 months ago +1

      @watchful news your first point doesn't make sense, if you think that why did Shaq, Wilt go to the line so many times? really dont know where you came to that conclusion, and yes Lebron does plow to the basket, he has size and strength on most his matchups and he uses it, like he should, like so many other guys with strength did throughout nba history

    • mogamethanu

      Senko 2 months ago +1

      Lmao he has the big two with ad for sure and if you want a howard/green but the rest is ok, its not extraordinary others have bad games the only consistent one with bron is ad, other have up and down performances. Its not like he has KD and Ad + all time great shooters because i can name legends and other teams that've had better players (2017-19 warriors, bulls with rodman jordan pippen kerr kukoc etc, kobe shaq lakers championship teams,celtics pre 2010 etc) there are many teams that were stacked more than this laker team the only thing this team has different from all the past teams is size advantage but other than that they dont have an unfair advantage compared to other great teams so your point is invalid.

    LeBron my guy and all but to be perfectly honest, in my humble opinion, of course without offending anyone who thinks differently from my point of view, but also by looking into this matter in a different perspective and without being condemning of one's view's and by trying to make it objectified, and by considering each and every one's valid opinion, I honestly believe that I completely forgot what I was going to say.

      Joseph Amuro I'm not a kyrie hater nor a kyrie fan. But you're an idiot who believes in media. Nets played 43 games kyrie played 15 games. When kyrie was injured, nets signed defensive guns like iman shumpert and started using david nwaba. It was the time when nets started winning some games. Iman shumpert got waived. David nwaba sadly got injured. It was the time when nets started loosing games..Plus kyrie played against tough teams like lakers, jazz ,philly , bucks and some of them were close games. This kyrie hate is getting ridiculous. 😂😂If kyrie scores like 5 or 6 points, no problem. He scored 20 points points and I know that kyrie had a worst shooting night. But he was the reason why nets deficit got reduced. Otherwise they would have lost by 30 or 40 points 😂😂. I am a great kawhi fan. I know that he is currently the best player in nba. Even he had some shooting nights. Even Anthony Davis had a bad game on both ends (9 points ) against boston .I don't have any problem in criticising kyrie. But you guys have personal hatred towards that guy. Just stop it bro. Leave that guy alone. He has only played 15 games. 😂😂
