The failure of the Nets project
It must be said that nothing went as planned this year for the net. Brooklyn was favorite for the title, but James Harden left the franchise during the season, in a trade with Philadelphia who saw Ben Simmons and Seth Curry do the reverse. Kyrie Irving meanwhile was unable to play home games for many months. Blame it on his refusal to be vaccinated against Covid-19, which prevented him from playing in New York State. Moreover, there would henceforth be a divide between Kyrie Irving and the net. According to Nick Friedelljournalist for ESPN, brooklyn would no longer trust his player.
“The Nets don’t trust him”
” Kyrie has to show that he wants to play, that he wants to be part of this team, every day “, did he declare. ” But above all, he must find his true level, the one of which he is capable. But the thing is, he hasn’t shown that in recent years. Is it possible to regain that trust? Absolutely. Kyrie remains a very talented player, one of the best point guards of this era. That being said, the Nets don’t trust him. It has broken down over time. I will be the first surprised if this confidence is able to return to this group, but above all to see all these players manage to play at their best level, all together. »
