Kyrie Irving is known one of the the best point guards in the entire NBA. The team would have a near-perfect record if Kyrie was playing alongside Brooklyn Nets. Unfortunately, due to his vaccination status, he cannot play any games.
It was stated that the Nets would not allow Irving to be a part-time player. Now, it appears as though the Nets could be looking to change that mentality soon.
According to a new report from Shams Charania of The Athletic, it was revealed that the Nets are optimistic that Irving will return. However, it’s not necessarily because Irving has changed his take on the vaccine.
It was also reported that Irving and Kevin Durant is having a lot of chat. It resulted in Irving’s desire to play.
According to Charania “It remains unclear whether Irving’s potential return this season would come via vaccination to meet New York City’s COVID-19 vaccine requirement or by Brooklyn opening the door for him to play road games and practice at home, but sources have indicated a renewed belief that Irving could play this season after all.”
He further added, “Nets players and coaches want to have Irving rejoin the team as soon as possible. In recent weeks, Irving and Kevin Durant, his co-star and close friend, have had increased communication about his fit on the team, breaking down the games, and about life in general, sources added. There appears to be an increased level of enthusiasm between the two superstars.”
Time will decide on what will happen further. Nets should be excited by the prospect of Kyrie’s return to action.
