NBA players react to Kyrie Irving's return

Kyrie Irving

Other NBA players were excited to see Kyrie back

Kyrie Irving has finally played in his first game this season in a 129-121 win against the Indiana Pacers. Even though he hasn't played since the start of the season because of all the well-known rules regarding the vaccine mandates, it seemed Irving didn't miss a beat. Instead, he finished the game with 22 points, showcasing his readiness to help the Brooklyn Nets. It was great to see him back out there on the floor and see him do what he does best, and especially excited were other NBA players who welcomed Kyrie's return.

Many of them went to their social media channels to share their excitement to see Irving back on the floor. Even though he will only be able to play in certain away games, there is no question this is a much-needed help for the Nets, but also a great sign to see one of the best point guards in the league back in action.
