I think that folks here can't fathom what it's like being these guys. Kyrie has a "brand" that goes beyond his direct contributions on the court, first of all. Guy starred in his own movie, has his own shoe, basically had an influence beyond pointz. And he's clearly personable with players, even the guys who don't appreciate everything that he does. Hell we've all had drinks after work with some cock who killed our project/deal and got over it, nevermind if he's one of maybe a hundred guys on earth who knows pretty much exactly what it's like to be you, if you're a top100 player in 2023. JB/JT seem to love him, and Lebron was publicly lamenting that the Lakers didn't get him. It's not like those cats didn't remember his tantrums. They just see past it. My .02.
Edit: fwiw, I wouldn't get past the antisemitism and am disappointed that others have, but when we're talking about "giving up in a series" or "shooting his way out of town", these guys forget that shit.
