    According to ESPN NBA insider Brian Windhorst, the Brooklyn Nets are prepared to move on from both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant this offseason. There is a lot of attention being focused on the Brooklyn Nets this offseason, and for good reason. Kyrie Irving and the Nets are nowhere near close to agreeing on a new deal, and things are leaning towards the guard exiting and joining a new team this offseason. That then opens up the door for Kevin Durant to potentially leave, as reports indicate that he is considering his options for the future. According to ESPN NBA insider Brian Windhorst, the Nets are putting it out there that they would rather lose Irving and Durant “than go through what they went through last season.” Video of @WindhorstESPN talking about the Nets pic.twitter.com/pHYUW4bLKn — Cody Mallory (@RealCodyMallory) June 27, 2022 The Nets are prepared to lose both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, per @WindhorstESPN Brooklyn would rather lose both stars than go through what they went through last season’ pic.twitter.com/xetUG4Tk1V — Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) June 27, 2022...
    Getty LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers and Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets. Since his arrival in Brooklyn in 2019, Kyrie Irving has yet to play a complete season with the Nets. Irving’s repeated absences were put under an even finer microscope this past season. He only played 29 games after refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19, which was mandatory for him to play Nets home games at Barclays Center. It has all led to one of the more pivotal situations in the history of the Nets franchise. Multiple reports have confirmed that the Nets are non-committal on offering Irving a max extension this summer. And the clock is ticking for Kyrie to decide if he will opt into the final year of his deal this season or opt out and become a free agent this summer. NBA analyst Bill Simmons says that now is the time for the Nets to cut ties with Kyrie. “You have to move on from Kyrie if you’re the Nets. You cannot bring him back; you have to sign and...
    Share this: The Brooklyn Nets had plenty of excuses for not winning an NBA championship last year, or even a single playoff game. Kyrie Irving only participated in 29 games, either due to his non-vaccination status or injury. Kevin Durant missed a month and a half of the campaign due to a knee injury, which sunk the Nets into a 3-14 funk when they still boasted the best record in the Eastern Conference.
    Getty Kyrie Irving #11 of the Brooklyn Nets tries to keep the ball from James Harden #1 of the Philadelphia 76ers . As a part of the trade that had the Brooklyn Nets trade All-Stars James Harden and Paul Millsap to the Philadelphia 76ers for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, and Andre Drummond, the Nets also received two first-round draft picks from the Sixers. Per ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets received Philadelphia’s unprotected 2022 first-round pick, with the right to defer it to 2023, as well as a top-8-protected 2027 first-round pick. The Nets are expected to once again be title contenders in 2023 and are looking to add players who can contribute to their team from day one. It is the reason that one NBA executive expects general manager Sean Marks and the Nets front office to defer the pick that is available to use this year, until 2023. “There is too much for them to figure out to be able to make that pick this year,” one NBA source told Heavy.com’s, Sean Deveney. “They want young...
    Getty Kyrie Irving #11 of the Brooklyn Nets. Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving was supposed to be the Boston Celtics’ starting point guard for the foreseeable future. Heading into the final year of his contract with the Celtics during the 2018-19 season, Kyrie attended a season ticket holder event at TD Garden and guaranteed fans that he would sign a long-term deal with the Celtics during 2019 free agency. What was supposed to be a promising season for Kyrie and the Celtics ended in a major disappointment. Boston lost in the second round to the Milwaukee Bucks in five games that year, and the clock began to tick on Irving’s expiring contract with the Celtics. In the end, Irving decided to join the Nets that summer, which still has left a sour taste in the mouths of Celtics fans. The latest Nets news straight to your inbox!

    Welcome to the 2022 NBA season, when what happens off the court is more polarizing than the results of an actual game. Superstar point guard Kyrie Irving arrived at Barclays Center midway through the second quarter of the Nets’ 110-107 win against the Knicks on Sunday. Irving walked in through the southeast visiting tunnel wearing an indistinguishable long, off-white tribal-patterned peacoat that read “States, Worlds & Empires” on the front. It was an outfit that could have been outdone only by the late Suge Knight, who wore all-red on almost all occasions. Irving walked towards the basketball court he’s torched so many times before the COVID-19 pandemic, made a left at the stanchion, just a step from the hardwood, and walked up the left side of the arena, through a crowd that chanted “Free Kyrie!” as he approached his seat. He made a pit-stop near half court, shaking hands and hugging several people sitting courtside. Irving then took his seat — at Nets owner Joe Tsai’s reserved spots closest to the southwest tunnel — and sat down before walking over...
    Getty Kyrie Irving #11 of the Brooklyn Nets dribbles with the ball in the second half against Gary Payton II #0 of the Golden State Warriors. Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving had his best game of the season on January 29 against the Golden State Warriors. The seven-time All-Star went off for 32 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in 39 minutes of action while shooting 9-of-21 from the field and 3-of-8 from beyond the arc. Despite Irving’s stellar game, though, the Nets lost to the Warriors by a final score of 110-106. However, it was certainly good for Brooklyn fans to see Irving have a productive outing against a team the Nets could face in the NBA Finals. The Duke product not only dominated his matchup against Stephen Curry, who finished with 19 points on just 5-of-18 shooting from the floor, but he also reminded the league how elite his killer instinct is.Irving Didn’t Let Boos from Warriors Fans Affect HimIrving was booed by Warriors fans during pregame introductions.

Even with a sample size of exactly one game, there are meaningful takeaways. Here’s what we learned about the Bucks, Nets, Lakers and Warriors on Opening Night.The Bucks are still a nightmare defensive matchup for the NetsI want to be clear that the Brooklyn Nets are absolutely a title contender and the absence of Kyrie Irving, even if it extends for the entire season, doesn’t rule them out of anything. But on Opening Night we saw again how playing without Irving takes away a major advantage against the Bucks in particular. The Bucks have three exceptional defenders — Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday — but they aren’t necessarily at their best putting those three on an opponent’s three primary scoring threats. If Holiday and Middleton can handle the opponent’s primary perimeter creators it allows Giannis to roam and create chaos off the ball as a rim-protector and in the passing lanes. When...
    Getty Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant For the second straight year, Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving will not address reporters for NBA media day as reported by Zach Lowe of ESPN. “Kyrie Irving is not expected to attend Nets media day today due to New York City health and safety protocols,” Lowe tweeted on September 27. But the Nets fully expect Irving to accompany the team to training camp in San Diego, sources tell [Brian Windhorst] and I.” Kyrie’s status for the upcoming season is still in the air. But his aunt Tyki Irving tells Rolling Stone she is hopeful that the NBA will find a way for him to remain unvaccinated and still fulfill his duties this season. “There are so many other players outside of him who are opting out, I would like to think they would make a way,” she said. “It could be like every third game. So, it still gives you a full season of being interactive and being on the court, but with the limitations that they’re, of course, oppressing upon you....

Irving’s coach said as much before the Nets looked to close out Boston in Tuesday’s Game 5 at Barclays Center. “I think it’d be nice for him to finish this and get that whole Boston experience in a sense behind him,” Steve Nash said. “I haven’t talked to him about it. I’d imagine there would be another element of closure, to finish the series off.” Cole Buckley — the Celtics fan who allegedly threw the water bottle at Irving — had his arraignment moved from Tuesday to Wednesday, according to WBZ in Boston. The 21-year-old is facing...
    Marcus Smart has former Boston Celtics teammate Kyrie Irving‘s back over TD Garden racism. Ahead of Game 3 between the Brooklyn Nets and the Boston Celtics, Marcus Smart defends his former teammate Kyrie Irving’s accusation of hearing racist comments commonplace at TD Garden. As Brooklyn takes a 2-0 series lead into Boston on Friday night, Irving said publicly he hoped the fans would just stick to ball and not spout out racist comments. Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said he has never heard such comments in his 26 years associated with the organization. Naturally, Twitter ate Ainge alive over him being completely tone-deaf to this ongoing issue. Though they play for rival teams now in the Atlantic Division, here is Smart sticking up for his former Boston teammate over this very important matter. Marcus Smart on if hes heard Boston fans make racist comments: "Yeah, Ive heard it. Ive hard a couple of things. Its hard to hear that and then have them support us as players. Its kind of sad and sickening." — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) May 27, 2021...
    The Daily Beast Phone Records Prove House Sergeant-at-Arms DID Ignore Pleas for Backup: Capitol Police Chief Erin Schaff/ReutersThe acting chief of the U.S. Capitol Police just came with the receipts.Testifying before a House Appropriations subcommittee about the catastrophic breakdown that allowed thousands of MAGA rioters to breach the Capitol, Acting Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman revealed that her predecessor called the House sergeant-at-arms, Paul Irving, at 12:58 p.m. to request the National Guard as rioters breaching the building and forced lawmakers into hiding.Former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, who resigned after the riot, called Irving again seven minutes later, according to phone records pulled by Pittman—and then called him at least three more times until 1:45 p.m.“When there’s a breakdown you look for those commanders with boots on the ground to provide that instruction,” Pittman said. “That did not happen, primarily because those operational commanders at the time were so overwhelmed, they started to participate and assist the officers… versus providing that guidance and direction.”First Capitol Riot Hearing Only Raised More Questions About Jan. 6The receipts–which support the narrative that...

This was the case for the most part during his debut campaign with the team back in 2019-20. Even with Kevin Durant back in the mix, Irving has proven himself to be an outcast in the Big Apple. © Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports That all took a dramatic turn last week when Irving was listed as out for a game citing personal reasons. There’s many different theories as to what happened behind the scenes. However, a recent report suggesting that he was attending a birthday party for his sister against NBA COVID-19 protocols adds another layer to this whole story. The NBA is now investigating this situation with Kyrie Irving potentially set to lose a whopping $460,000 per game he misses...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — A search was under way for a carjacking suspect whom police followed from Skokie to the city’s Northwest Side Sunday night. Skokie police said at 6:37 p.m., they were called to the purple parking garage at Westfield Old Orchard Mall, after a man reported that two men stole his gray Infiniti sedan at gunpoint. The men got in the car and drove off in it, police said. The victim was not injured. A Skokie police squad saw the stolen car headed south on the Edens Expressway and tried to pull it over, but the carjackers did not stop and crossed into Lincolnwood and then Chicago, police said. The Skokie police squad car chased the vehicle until it crashed into an unoccupied parked car at Irving Park Road and Keeler Avenue in the Old Irving Park neighborhood, near the Kennedy Expressway exit. The suspects bailed from the car, and one of them was apprehended on Keeler Avenue between Byron and Grace streets, police said. He was identified as a juvenile offender, police said.
