Kyrie Irving criticizes the Brooklyn Nets. He is the opposite of the enemy.
Irving had his first training session with the Dallas Mavericks on the 8th (Korean time). In an interview after his practice, he said, ‘I felt like I wasn’t respected in Brooklyn.’
Also, regarding the controversy over his off-court issues, ‘I play basketball hard. The Brooklyn side focused only on off-court work, not on-court, and evaluated it.”
He even said of Kevin Durant that he was “just a business partner.”
Irving’s skill is unquestioned. He averaged 27.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.3 assists in 40 games this season. However, there were too many eccentricities off the court. His actions crossed the line that ruined teamwork.
He refused to be vaccinated against the new coronavirus in 2020 and played only 29 regular league games. Because of this, the Big 3 (Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving), which Brooklyn had ambitiously gathered, were disbanded. Harden moved to Philadelphia. 바카라사이트
Just before this season, he already requested an open trade, and in November of last year, he introduced a movie and book with anti-Semitic content on social media, and was suspended for five games.
Three years in Brooklyn were a series of accidents. Naturally, Brooklyn isn’t easy to trust Irving. In addition, he asked for an open trade before the season, and this time when negotiations for an extension of his contract ran into difficulties, he demanded another trade.
It was a four-year, $198 million requirement. For Brooklyn, their team plan itself was completely ruined due to Irving for three years. He could not accept the offer of a 4-year contract renewal.
Eventually, he moved to Dallas. Brooklyn side openly said, ‘Irving is an incredible player’. It deserves it.
Irving eventually left Brooklyn. He didn’t stop there. He criticized Brooklyn and drew lines with Durant. It is an enemy field. Irving will make his Dallas debut on the 9th against the LA Clippers.
