NBA Rumors: The Brooklyn Nets gained’t supply Kyrie Irving a contract extension.
Maybe the connection between Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets is worst than all of us notice. First, it was reported that the Nets wouldn’t be on board with Kyrie being a part-time player this season. Now it’s being reported that they don’t plan on offering him a contract extension except circumstances change (i.e. he will get vaccinated and is ready to meet protocol set out by the state of New York).
Over the previous few days, it looks like one thing has modified within the relationship between Kyrie and the Nets. I’m not precisely certain what befell behind closed doorways, however it seems one thing is off.
The large query, nevertheless, is whether or not that can also be the case with Kevin Durant and James Harden. Durant selected to play with Kyrie in Brooklyn and that duo is off to a tough begin – final season, it was accidents that the workforce needed to struggle by way of and now it’s Kyrie’s stance towards present well being and security protocols.
When Harden met with the media, it was clear that one thing was off. Maybe one thing is off between Kyrie and the remainder of his teammates, together with Durant and Harden.
After all, this might all change on a dime if Kyrie merely elects to take the vaccine. At this level, although, you’d must marvel if there may be something extra that’s going down behind the scenes. It began as a result of Kyrie didn’t need to take the vaccine however I’m undecided if it hasn’t advanced into one thing deeper at this level.
A minimum of for now, Kyrie is not going to be taking part in for the Nets this season. And for that to alter, it looks like there needs to be a whole lot of change. And, maybe, even some reconciliation of relationships in that locker room.
