    I’m not buying he was out for a shoulder injury.

      he listed like 4 things wrong with his arm he had to get fixed. Also had therapy 4 times a week not to mention he’s like 50 big differences from 25.

      Because he never had a shoulder injury since 2019. It was a herniated disc in his spine. And if you are asking for proof you won’t get it because of HIPPA of 1996 [Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act] which states “a client/patients medical records cannot be disclose under any circumstance to public. Doing so will be considered a breach of contract and will be penalize by the federal government and the DOH [Department of Health]”.

      Its in wikipedia and the CDC site.

    KD signed a 4 year extension with no options and then almost the moment the contract kicked in demanded a trade with zero leverage built up at all. I don’t think anyone can go out on a limb and say “ that’s not his character” no one knows what KDs next move is gonna be other than KD .

      You know what his next play is? If marks and nash gets canned, durant will demand 51% ownership of the nets next offseason!

      Idk. Everyone is assuming kd will play because he loves hoop so much. Seems like everyone including the nets think they know his next move.

    Michael Irvin Is so Right.. No Difference In What KD Is Doing And What Ben Simmons Done Last Year!!!!

      It’s different. The nets have done everything Kevin has wanted and has had his back throughout. The Sixers didn’t have bens back, they wanted to trade him a long time ago for harden but couldn’t get it done, Ben became the scape goat for the Sixers loss against the hawks and then wanted him to play to rebuild his own stock so that they could get a bigger return with his trade.

      @Myles Okeefe Sorry but there is no difference at all, just two over grown dirty diaper waring players who are not getting their way any longer.. KD and Simmons wants the money but they don’t want to play to get it..

    The Nets needs to acquire James Harden and Russell Westbrook with KD, Kyrie and Ben Simmons still on the roster. Bring back the old team.

    So Simmons literally had back surgery and people r saying he faked his back injury?

    • Shaundra Hammond

      August 15, 2022 at 6:03 pm

      Correct

    • CH

      August 16, 2022 at 10:22 am

      It’s not the most ridiculous thing. People have relatively non-compromising procedures all the time to get money. They do it for disability claims. Car accidents so they can get lawsuit money. I know someone that had a back procedure to get a huge payout from the insurance company. You think he wouldn’t do it for 20 million at stake. This guy set out an entire season and didn’t get the surgery until the summer. Keep in mind he had to pass a physical before Brooklyn acquired him. Claimed he was ready to play and then he didn’t.

      Definitely suspicious.

    Kyrie and Ben isn’t enough to get you a playoff spot in the East this year. Maybe a play-in

      Are we talking about the same Kyrie that dropped 50 multiple times off high efficiency? Are we talking about Ben Simmons that is arguably a defensive player of the year when he competes. And you add KD … a guy that averaged nearly 30 ppg and was in MVP convos this season.

      they were #1 in the East with less talent and roster instability before KD got hurt. They will definitely make the playoffs.

    Stephen A is KD’s character to demand a trade or fire an organization’s GM and coach??

  11. Michaell Stone

    August 15, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Irving is somewhat talented but a joke and only piggyback off James, or they both did off each other and KD off the Warriors, otherwise they both done making a name for themselves in the NBA

    team players comparison. asinine. if kd dont get traded he will waste another 4 years. no many players winning 3 or 4 chips in the end of their careers. he supposed won last 2 years with 2 big 3s but he didnt so thats big fail if you the best player in nba. why everyone fail to understand that.

    Why is moving him even a discussion? What’s the point of contracts if no one is following them? Total insanity.

  15. Van Iyke

    August 19, 2022 at 1:05 pm

    So how does Simmons resurrect his career???

    So he basically is admitting he was the problem at 76ers then? SMDH.

    Well, let’s wait and see him make a set of 3s and a couple of floaters in one game. Then we can start talking
