It feels scary for Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant to play together for the same team, at least on paper. But the duo tried to donate the Brooklyn Nets jersey and unfortunately it didn’t work out so far.
Both players have technically spent three seasons together but have never reached the NBA Finals. Now, according to a lot of news, it looks like the two are going to end up running together.
The main reason behind that is that Kyrie Irving is adamant about signing the Supermax deal and the Brooklyn Net does not want to give him that deal. After all, in the last three seasons, Kyrie has lost a lot of games for a variety of reasons.
In addition, Kai is now being linked with the Los Angeles Lakers and the New York Knicks. There is still a possibility that these two will work, but it seems very unlikely. Even more so after Kiri was revealed to be using Kevin Durant for a big deal from the net.
“Kyrie Irving’s advantage in negotiating with the Nets is that he will want to trade if Kevin Durant leaves.”
Given that KD joined the Nets to play with Kai and led the team to the NBA Championships, it’s no surprise that things have come a long way.
If Irving really decides to leave the Nets, Durant has no reason to stay with the team and could only be forced to trade from the team. We saw this happen in the case of James Harden.
So the net is in a difficult position right now. With each passing day, it seems that KD and Kiri are not as close as they were reported by an NBA insider. What is the future of the Brooklyn Net? Find out in the next few days.
