Man, so glad we didn't pick Jonathan Isaac.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

Kyrie just isn't worth the head ache anymore. Even if he has to forfeit half his pay, I am not sure you want to pay a guy 18M to only play in half your games and be such a distraction.
It's an interesting question. Of course you don't want to estrange or lose a player as talented as him for nothing. But everywhere he goes, he seems to alienate everybody with his bizarre behavior and antics. The flat earth stuff, just randomly ditching games and practices without notifying anybody, and now spouting conspiracy theories and refusing to vaccinate himself even if it means missing home games. With Harden already there, maybe you consider flipping Kyrie for a slightly less talented but better-fit player?

Brooklyn’s in the bizarre situation that they’re actually better off without HCA in the playoffs if Kyrie can’t play at home.

Yeah. I was really in favor of him over Josh Jackson. So glad we don't have either on our team.

From a basketball perspective, Isaac would be so freaking perfect for us at the 4. A Bridges-Isaac-Ayton defensive frontcourt would be amazing.

Yes I still wish we’d have taken him. Skill set wise he is awesome for us. Injury prone though
Thad Young please

And to be fair to Isaac, he disputes what the article says. He’s still deciding to not take the vaccine, but it’s not due to conspiracy theories at least. I still disagree with his decision though.

Thad Young please

If he has higher antibody levels than those vaccinated in February who have waning immunity, then I don't see why he should be subject to stricter restrictions than them.

Most important stat is availability. The guy was drafted 2 years before Cam Johnson but has only played 20 more games. Hope he can get healthy and have a good career.

In general I agree. But those comparisons are to the people that got it in February, which are almost exclusively elderly and immuno-compromised.
