He is an NBA champion and seven-time All-Star.
He’s also one of the most mercurial players in the league and is known for his willingness to abandon a ship that he feels isn’t right for him – as he has with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, and maybe now the Nets.
The latest rumors say that Irving may be moving from the Nets after he and the team have come to an impasse about his future.
Already, the Los Angeles Lakers and the New York Knicks are thought of as possible suitors.
And so, once again, we get to speculate about Irving and his future and do another dance with the league’s most fascinating, cryptic, and controversial point guard.
This isn’t the first time Irving has created a situation like this.
Of course, all of the NBA world sounded off when news of Irving’s possible departure from the Nets was leaked.
Most people were ragging on him and his short history with the Nets.
Keith Smith made it obvious that the Celtics actually ended up winning the trade between the two teams from nearly a decade ago.
Celtics have Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum and made the NBA Finals.
Nets have seven playoff wins in three years of KD/Kyrie and now it all might be breaking up.
I guess Boston did win the trade after all!
(We already knew Boston won that trade about five years ago, yet…)

Meanwhile, fans of the Celtics were enjoying the uncertainty and anxiety and Irving was creating for yet another team.
It seems like they are happy that he’s far gone from their team.

As for followers of Brooklyn, some of them are just plain fed up.
They saw Irving as a crucial part of their team winning a Finals.
Without Irving, their chances are greatly impaired, which is leading to some just throwing their hands up in their air.
If the Nets trade Kyrie for Russ I'm just going to start following handball or something

It remains to be seen what Irving will do – he may remain in Brooklyn – but until the decision is final, all eyes will be on Brooklyn and their temperamental guard.
