Trade Kyrie Now!!!

I love watching Kyrie play just as much as all other Cavs fans, but it's time to trade him before the trade deadline.If Chris Grant has one major weakness as a GM, it's that he doesn't realize when he should sell high on a player.Earlier this season, AV was playing like a top 3 center, and Grant held fast. Look how that ended -- with injury and misery! Now Grant is doing the same thing with Kyrie. His stock has never been higher than right now, and yet Grant still hasn't traded him!

I feel like I'm living in a world full of crazies!

When you have an asset like Kyrie Irving who is injury prone but still worth SOMETHING, you trade him when you can. The Cavs could get back a great, young player like Brandon Jennings or Jimmer or Josh Smith. They could get back real, impact players to build this team around. Personally, I like the Josh Smith option. It's rare to get an athletic, shot blocking center who can also stretch out to behind the three point line. Then the Cavs could finally move Livingston to the starting lineup as the point guard of the future.

If the Cavs don't do this, they're going to regret it forever. Kyrie is great, but he has clearly hit his ceiling and is one more injury away from hitting his floor. Sure it's fun to watch him do his thing now, but it's time to stop messing around and start thinking of the future. Clearly, that future isn't with Kyrie, but maybe he can be used to get someone who IS the future.
