It’s been a rough few weeks for fans of the Brooklyn Nets.
Since losing star player Kevin Durant, the team has pretty much collapsed and now is eighth in the Eastern Conference with a 31-28 record.
Their hopes of easily making the NBA Finals are all but gone and now they’re just trying to make it into the postseason.
But Kyrie Irving isn’t too worried, suggesting to fans that better times are ahead.

Speaking on a Twitch stream, Irving said, “Just watch how our squad comes out of the All-Star Break.”
Nets fans are hoping that Irving knows what he is talking about and that the team is able to turn things around because, right now, it’s looking pretty bleak.
Brooklyn’s Big Problems
Brooklyn hasn’t had an easy season.
It all started when Irving decided to not get the COVID vaccine, which resulted in him not being able to be a part of the team.
The team has since partly changed its tune but Irving can still only play in away games, meaning he’s a part-time help.
James Harden, who recently left the team for Philadelphia, was inconsistent for much of the season too.
Of course, injuries and COVID absences hurt as well.
This all concluded with Durant’s injury, which took the best player off the court for weeks.
So why is Irving so confident that things can change?
Durant is coming back, of course, so there is hope the squad can get back on track.
Plus, the team recently landed Ben Simmons, a defensive powerhouse who can greatly help them.
These are the two biggest reasons to have hope that the rest of the season will be better than what’s come before for the Nets.
But time is running out so the Nets need to get to work on this turnaround as soon as possible.
