    The theme for this entire season has been that Luka doesn't have any help and is doing it alone, so it seems a bit strange that it would be considered "risking everything" in adding Kyrie.

    If Kyrie doesn't re-sign, Dallas will have enough cap space to sign a near max player. Before this trade they didn't have that. That cap space they could use to let Luka pick his next teammate. Plus they have Kyrie's bird rights which means they can match any offer out there. They have leverage and ways to recoup. Honestly this is a great gamble for them. Cuban is showing Luka that they are willing to do whatever it takes to help.

      ​@Neill Oireachtaigh no way in helll Nikola jokic goes there, he is the Draymond Green on offense for the nuggets & the ball flows through him very fluidly. Luka just needs a bunch of good role players around him that don't mind having everything flow through Luka and their offensive numbers taking a hit. He kills the fluidity of the offense and shoots eight threes a game at a low percentage. It would kill a Superstars career to go there, even someone like Klay Thompson who doesn't need the ball is much better suited with Steph because neither team hurts the fluidity of the offense and both of them played the exact same way without the ball

    Here’s what I think: the Mavs have nothing to lose. Keeping the same guys doesn’t help, and if we were waiting for 2025, Luka would’ve requested a trade by 2024 anyways. Even if Luka waited, did you think Ingram/Tatum/Murray/Spida would leave their teams? Not a chance. So it’s the best thing they could’ve done. Us Mavs fans just have to do one thing: pray to God this works out.

    I think it's a best deal Dallas could get to actually compete. That current squad was simply mid and they're 0-7 without Luka. I'm sure they talked with Kyrie already to sign an extension which Nets wasn't willing to offer.
    Now if Mavs sign Wood and Kyrie to extensions they can simply compete and make their way to NBA finals sine GSW's core is getting older. Steph will be 35 and is super injury prone. Suns are done as well. Clipper are flippers. Lakers are bad. I'm taking my chances of Mavs with Luka, Kyrie and Wood beating Nuggets, Grizzlies and Pels in playoffs.

    THANK YOU. I live in Dallas and have been saying for months that Kyrie would make a great addition to this team (on paper). I didn't think it would actually happen, but I always liked the idea of it. This sums up all of my thoughts perfectly. I don't know why people keep saying the Mavs got worse. They weren't a great defensive team anyway. At the VERY least, this is a net zero trade for the Mavs short term. At best they're a real threat, although, I still don't think they have enough to ACTUALLY win a championship. And for the people who keep saying they're risking losing Luka, they were already on the verge of losing him. I watched Dirk's whole career and many times I thought he should’ve left. Man had more loyalty than Dame. Mark Cuban has always been a mid owner at best. He blew up the championship team literally the year after they won. Before or after he never surrounded Dirk with a GREAT team. I never expected them to sign anyone significant. Cuban is cheap and short-sighted. To me this gives the Mavs a better chance of keeping Luka than what they were doing. Sure they're kinda boom or bust right now, but at least they’re not mid. At least something other than the inevitable "Luka puts up a Herculean effort only to not have enough help" headline that was coming.

    • Randy Graham
      Randy Graham Ай бұрын +1

      Your comment shows you're aware of Cuban's many poor decisions. Blowing up that championship team was crazy because they had an excellent chance to repeat.
      Cuban inherited Dirk who Donnie Nelson Sr. acquired in a trade before Cuban bought the team. Nelson then traded for Nash ... but Cuban let Nash walk for nothing back to the Suns. Nash, of course, then won two MVPs. Keeping Nash and Dirk together would have almost 100% produced a couple of titles.
      Then Cuban refused to draft Giannis to save a few bucks (no pun intended) even though Donnie Nelson Jr. was BEGGING him to draft the Greek Freak. Nelson Jr. is the one who got them to draft Luka but Cuban fired him last year. I think the Kyrie trade is bad because he's 100% undependable ... but it will certainly be interesting.
      Good luck to all Mav's fans out there.

Mark Cuban really is an amazing person for giving Luka the support he needs and doing so many other things at the same time. Im really starting to like our chances this year in the west.

    I think this is a win-win for the Dallas Mavericks and hear me out.
    If Kyrie Irving could get them over the hump and get them to the finals because last year they lost in the Western Conference to the Golden State Warriors who became champions that year then it will be lovely even if they get to The Finals and they lose it's still a success.
    But lets say it's bad like Rajon Rando bad then the Dallas Mavericks can look at Luka and say hey we are trying to get you a star or superstar to go alongside you and we will continue to do so.
    I mean let's be honest what they have nothing to lose plus the Western Conference is wide open so it's a possibility that this can probably work.

      @M&F Clippers always find a way to underachieve. On paper they should be the champions for the last 3 years, instead they have 1 conference finals.
      Nuggets aren't exactly great in defense either,and only really have Murray as a perimeter scorer. Don't get me wrong Murray is great but Luka can somewhat restrict him. Meanwhile the Nuggets would have no answer for both Kyrie and Luka. And the way the Warriors are playing so far nobody is scared of them

    I’m gonna comment the same thing a fellow commenter, Kurtis, said. This gives the Mavericks actually a LOT of freedom. They did have to sacrifice a first round pick, and some decent players, I’m a big time mavs fan and I love Doe-Doe and Spence, but even if Kyrie does not resign or they do not agree, they will have plenty of cap space for Luka to choose his star. So, in terms of risk, there’s always risk. Kyrie could resign and then cause trouble. They could miss out on a star and spend the cap space on someone else. There’s always risk. But I think this is great for the mavs. Worst case scenario he’s a rental that is essential for a deep playoff run and you retool, best case scenario they make a big 2 with Luka and Kyrie at the helm. So yes, there is risk, as every trade does, but I think people are kind of blowing the negative out of proportion. The mavs can recover if Kyrie doesn’t re-sign. Also, Luka and KP did get along at first. Was their relationship perfect? Of course not. But they worked good together and there were moments where they were good friends. However KP got tired of playing second fiddle and the mavs were not going to be choose him over Luka.

    Let's just put it this way: this is basically what the Cavs did with Lebron, but instead of trading for Kyrie, they drafted him as a means to get Lebron to come back. In the Mavs case, they traded for Kyrie as a means to get Luka to stay. We'll see what happens.

    I am curious to see how this trade shakes out... Kyrie is an upgrade over Dinwiddie on offense, but likely a downgrade on defense. Dallas also lost a valuable piece in Finney-Smith. So does the offense of Kyrie compensate for everyhting they gave up? My initial guess is that Dallas will not improve enough to justify the price.

    I feel like Kyire and Luka might struggle a little bit but at the same time I feel like it could some what work but it will take a little bit of time. But this trade does help the Mavs cause it gives them a all star point guard in kyire which they need and he is better then Spencer diwiddie. For the nets it is soild cause they get some shooting and some picks at lest some assets. At the same time Toyo gave up an all star that maybe could of win championship with KD. But at the Ames time same time they are still hella good cause thier is some familiarity for
    Spencer. But at the same time this could hurt the Mavs cause they under perform and kyire and Luka have different playing styles. And they are not good in defense and they are different personalities. And what if kyire don’t wanna be their and not play with Luka it like James harden didn’t wanna play with John wall. Or what if they both want want the ball but then that effects thiwr chemistry like James harden and cp3 or Russell Westbrook. But it gonna be interesting to see what happens.

      Maybe so. But if the Mavs are championship contenders for the next three years and win a title at least once in that span, they won't be crying if Kyrie implodes in 2026. High risk, high reward move.

    I am actually optimistic. First off, a place like Texas will be a better fit for a person like Kyrie. Second, I think Kyrie would like to ball out and get a chip with Luka despite all the frame around him, that would be the ultimate revenge on the media etc. Could work out.

    The issue with the 2025 Free Agent market claim is that Dallas NEVER signs big name free agents. They never have and likely never will, whatever the reason may be. I agree its a big risk taking the Kyrie baggage, but the Mavs cannot rely on getting a FA in that class.

    As always lifelong Local Mavs Fan I am ecstatic right now. Now is the time we gotta strike while the iron is hot. We gotta go in and push all our Chips in and go for broke on either Siakam or Anunoby. It's now or never. The west is down and weak this year. A move like that could put us over the top if this all works out and Luka and kyrie are both on the Same page. Luka, Kyrie, Wood and Anunoby or Siakam regardless of whoever else is the 5th starter. Name a better starting 5. Sad to see Spence and Doe go they were major parts of the culture and backbone of our Squad. If any coach in the League has a chance to bring this together and make this work its Kidd. Kyrie has nothing but Respect for Kidd and Kidd was one of his idols growing up. Not to mention his close Friendship he has with Nico Harrison. This could work. Kidd just has to try to get Kyrie Focused and ready to do nothing but Hoop.. what I was shocked about was that we had to give up no immediate assets and we could push them down 5 or 6 years down the line and still Land Kyrie. Not to mention still get to keep Wood too and still have immediate draft assets to male another bit splash. As cheap as we got Kyrie is going to hurt the potential returnthey could have got for Anunoby/Siakam and Lavines value. Might be able to land somebody else for cheaper than what the price was be fore now TBH... 🤯🤯🤯

The only way they have a chance is if they someone find a chemistry with kyrie

    When you said Luka and Porzingis didn't get along I was like... Weren't they friends? Overall this really helps out Dallas either way, if Kyrie decides to leave this summer they get cap space +him as a trade, which means this move is a short term+long term investment that can't really hurt the mavs except if Kyrie breaks his leg or something like that.

    For the whole Kyrie potentially being a Western All Star starter, he wouldn’t be.

    Here my opinion: I think Luka is going to make an impression on Kyrie where Kyrie feels those 2016 Cavs vibes and theg actually work great together. Just like Kyrie and LBJ. I think Kyrie needs that kind of player next to him. He was the guy in Boston, couldn't handle it. Tried to pair with KD who let's be honest, is beta, and Kyrie couldn't handle it. Luka is a leader. Luka talks shit and backs it up. He's literslly like you said, the European LeBron. Kyrie is going to love playing alongside Luka.
