Kyrie Irving may have played the final game of the 2020-21 NBA season, for sure.
Irving is poised to sit the rest of the campaign amid growing frustration with nets, KRON-TV’s Jason Dumas reported Wednesday. The star point defender, who missed Brooklyn’s last five games as the NBA censors his maskless party video, is reportedly angry at the organization for a number of reasons, including hiring head coach Steve.

It was also reported that the acquisition of Brooklyn’s James Harden was not approved by Irving, which was reportedly not accepting the Nets call as recently as Wednesday afternoon.
What a mess!
“Brooklyn Nets have always been interested in buying James Harden. But such a deal is imperative when considering the situation with Keeree Irving, ”Dumas tweeted.“ Kyrie is willing to sit all year if required by someone close to him. ”
Again: What a mess.
Irving has rightfully been criticized across the NBA, ESPN̵7;s Stephen Smith urged the 28-year-old to retire immediately. For now, Irving, which remains one of the most outstanding talents of all basketball, loses the benefit of the doubt.
However, Irving should reunite and return to court, the Nets could be an unstoppable force that the NBA has never seen. Brooklyn has three players on the roster who can score 50 points every night.
Of course, their success also depends on Harden’s return to something like a professional man once again, the great “if”.
Irving and The Nets, however, are creating one of the more entertaining dramas in recent sports history.
