Kyrie Irving had a reality check with the market

Kyrie has exercised his player option and will stay a Net. But after searching the market, he discovered it was a ghost town for realistic offers.

Kyrie has exercised his player option and will stay a Net. But after searching the market, he discovered it was a ghost town for realistic offers.

Not even in Brooklyn...

Even in Brooklyn, Kyrie did not have the bargaining chips to barter for more money. If he goes, do you think he has that sway to take KD with him, after the season they just had, with the talent they have played with for their three ultimately disappointing years in Brooklyn? 

Do you think KD wants to start over? He took the Thunder to the Finals. He won a championship in Golden State. You have to reach the conference finals at least before you feel comfortable jumping off that ship -- especially when you're as great as Kevin Durant as we all know he is.

Reality check for the man operating outside of reality

You will find a difference when asking NBA players how they would feel about playing with Kyrie Irving compared to how they would feel playing with Kevin Durant. So my question is -- and I feel like this relates to most athletes to an extent -- what were you expecting to find after putting yourself out there?

When you missed 123 of 226 regular-season games since arriving in Brooklyn in 2019, took unnotified sabbaticals, publicly stated you didn't need a coach, confusingly fought for a stance that became pivotal in the James Harden departure, then averaged 20-5-5 in a series where you're swept, and already in your thirties… like what am I missing here?

This all relates to the fundamental Kyrie Irving problem; he is unreliable, he doesn't seem fun to play with, and he has a history of bailing on teams.

This was simply a reality check for the man operating outside reality.
