How do you decide if a player is the right fit?
With the NBA trade deadline passed, there were a lot of marquee moves made that will certainly shake up the NBA season. I wanted to focus on the Kyrie Irving trade to the Dallas Mavericks this week in the #CJJblog. Is it the right fit? Or has he proven to be too much of a headache? For me, I would not want him on my team. What do you think of the Kyrie trade and how does he fit in with Luka Doncic in Dallas?
- Talent. Kyrie has undeniable offensive talent. One of the most talented players in the NBA. Ball-handling, shooting, clutch performer, and can get buckets at will. On the defensive end, though? Not so much.
- Passion. Can his teammates count on him? No. As Woody Allen once said, “80% of success is showing up.” Kyrie is a high risk every game, every season to sit out for a myriad of reasons. No thank you.
- Coachable. CANEI Formula (Constant and Never-Ending Improvement). Does he make others around him better? He lacks the drive to lead by example. I would consider him a coach’s headache.
- We > Me. He is the epitome of a “Me > We” player. Is that someone you would want on your team? In my opinion, it’s a resounding NO.
