No Kyrie Irving suitors on trade market?

One big problem for the Nets: There probably aren’t a lot of Kyrie suits, if any. Few teams wanted him way back in 2017 when he hit the trade block, and his value has plummeted since. The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported in October that the Nets would listen to offers for Irving. I’m told there were crickets.

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

👁️ Just before halftime in Game 4, down 8, Kyrie Irving refused to launch a fullcourt heave at the buzzer. On the broadcast @RyanRuocco was rightfully aghast. Why did Third Eye Kai do that? @CornPuzzle @Amin_Amin and I investigate. @TheBatardShow

June 30, 2019, was the day Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving declared they would sign with Brooklyn.
That was 1,032 days ago.
Imagine telling Nets fans that day that KD & Kyrie would win only 1 playoff series (and just 7 playoff games) over the next 3 years.

We didn’t get the result we wanted, but I wanted to congratulate my brothers in that Celtics locker room. They earned the series Win and I wish them well as they advance. Nothing but love competing against them. – 9:48 PM

The Nets are already near the 2023-24 luxury tax before factoring in any potential free agents including Kyrie Irving, Bruce Brown, Andre Drummond, Goran Dragic, Patty Mills, Nic Claxton, Blake Griffin, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kessler Edwards and David Duke Jr. basketballnews.com/stories/nba-of… – 8:36 PM

If you’re Kevin Durant who is about to turn 34, do you trust Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons to help you get a legitimate championship that didn’t come about because you jumped to the best team in basketball, or do you seek change? – 2:17 PM

Only the Lakers’ ineptitude kept the Nets from sole ownership of the NBA’s most miserable season. When it was finally over, it had a feeling of goodbye and good riddance.
“I know so many people wanted to see us fail at this juncture,” Kyrie Irving said.

Nick Friedell: Kyrie Irving on getting booed in Boston: “I know it’s going to be like that for the rest of my career coming in here. So it’s like the scorned girlfriend — wants an explantation on why I left, but still hoping for a text back. I’m just like, “It’s fun while it lasted.” -via Twitter @NickFriedell / March 6, 2022
