We briefly discuss the Major League Baseball playoffs, and what we might expect in the upcoming postseason series.

Multiple NBA teams interested in Kyrie Irving despite having nothing of value to trade

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving has formally requested a trade, and there are a number of NBA teams that are interested in attaining his services.

There is just one problem.

The more interested the suitor, the less assets they have to trade.

It was big news when word came out that Irving was tired of playing in the shadow of LeBron James, and that he was formally requesting a trade.

Trade scenarios were the subject of talk radio, and sports themed television everywhere. However, no move has been made, and we are starting to see why Irving still remains on the Cavaliers roster.

cavaliers-kyrie-irving-flat-earth

One of the leading contenders in the Irving sweepstakes has been the San Antonio Spurs. The Daly Dose was able to contact a spokesperson for the Spurs, and here is a portion of that conversation:

Daly Dose: “So, rumor has it that you are interested in possibly trading for Kyrie Irving.”

San Antonio Spurs: “We are definitely interested. Kyrie is a game changer, and a very explosive player.”

DD: “So what would you be willing to trade to get him to come to San Antonio.”

SAS: “What do you mean?”

DD: “Which players would you be willing to trade to get Kyrie?”

SAS: “Well, we don’t really have much to trade.  I suppose we could let them have Patty Mills. Or maybe some of Manu Ginobili’s old hair. “

DD: “So, how do you expect to get Kyrie Irving?”

SAS: “Well I don’t want to go into all of the details, but we are very interested in having Kyrie come play for us.”

DD: “Yes, I understand that, but I think they may want LaMarcus Aldridge and Danny Green.”

SAS: “Well, too bad for them. They will have to accept less.”

San Antonio was not the only team that seemed to have these sentiments.

The New York Knicks are offering a partially smoked marijuana cigarette left behind in Phil Jackson’s desk, and what’s left of Joakim Noah. The Minnesota Timberwolves are dangling Ricky Rubio… despite the fact that he is no longer on their roster. The Denver Nuggets would give the Cavs point guard Emmanuel Mudiay , and an old Dan Issel jersey.

New Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman spoke to the trade offers he has been receiving.

“Look, we realize that Kyrie would like to be moved, but the offers that we have been receiving just do not make any sense for us.” Altman stated. “In fact, some of them have been flat out ridiculous. This one that we just received from the Los Angeles Clippers is ludicrous. It just says that Austin Rivers will come wash my car, and do household chores for me. Okay, well actually that one isn’t bad. I’m going to hold on to that.”
