The Brooklyn Nets Must be Frustrated
The controversy surrounding Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn has ended, at least temporarily. The Nets’ point guard will continue to play for them for one more season after choosing to opt into his contract’s final year. Despite a lot of rumors regarding Irving’s potential destinations, he ultimately decided to remain with Kevin Durant.
Even that the offseason turmoil is over, it will be interesting to see what transpires in the upcoming season. Brooklyn has faced with a lot of issues as a result of Irving, but it is hopeful that things will be better next season.
Although Irving has incredible on-court abilities, his personality is anything but. Freddie Coleman of ESPN compared him to Dennis Rodman, a member of the Hall of Fame:
Dennis Rodman and Kyrie Irving have many similarities
In the middle of the 1998 season, Rodman visited Las Vegas. He was permitted to visit there for two days, but he failed to return in time, necessitating the assistance of his comrades.
Freddie Coleman of ESPN also noted some distinctions between Kyrie Irving and the former Chicago Bulls forward. Despite his contentious nature, Irving doesn’t want to upset or alienate those who are close to him.
On the other side, Rodman showed little concern for other people. He acted as he pleased and frequently got into trouble.
Kyrie Irving: Will he adjust?
Irving missed more than 50 games this season as a result of his refusal to get vaccinations. Although some people respect Irving for his position, his absence while receiving more than $30 million in compensation generated issues for his franchise.

Irving hasn’t played well since leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers, despite the vaccine issue. After only two years, he parted ways with the Boston Celtics on terrible terms, and his time with the Brooklyn Nets has been a dismal failure.
He probably won’t change anytime soon. He’ll probably play in Brooklyn for one more season before joining a franchise that will put up with him.
