The Blazers star was sure messing around with Kyrie, after his ‘pawn’ remarks for the media. Both Kyrie and Dame are back, and are healthy for the start of the season. Dame showed us he is all set to go, as he was on the money from the 3-line in yesterday’s warmup game against the Kings.
Meanwhile, the Nets are yet to play a warmup game yet, as they start their first game against the Wizards at 6 PM ET on Sunday.
