The team suffered a pretty rough 2021-22 season and it was partly due to the fact that Irving wasn’t able to play in many games because of his COVID vaccine status.
In other words, he has a lot to prove to the loyal fans of the team in the upcoming season.
"I got Kyrie Irving as one of my top league MVP candidates. Everybody better brace themselves… This brother is gonna put on a show!"

Stephen A Smith thinks he will do just that and will put all the critics to shame.
“I got Kyrie Irving as one of my top league MVP candidates. Everybody better brace themselves. This brother is gonna put on a show,” Smith said about Irving.
Is Smith way off his rocker here or does Irving really have a shot at being the league’s most valuable player?
Irving In The Mix
There is a lot of noise that surrounds Irving everywhere he goes and, sadly, it obstructs the fact that he’s a terrific player and one of the best guards in the league.
He was averaging 27.4 points during the last season.
Unfortunately, that season consisted of just 29 games for Irving because he wasn’t permitted to participate in many games.
That won’t be a problem this year and the only thing that will hold him back will be himself.
The latest images and reports from inside the team suggest that Irving is fired up and ready to play.
With all the controversy gone, it’s time for Irving to remind people how good he is.
This suggests that the 2021-22 season could soon be a distant memory for the team and those who support it.
The most important thing now is for the Nets to stay healthy and cohesive as a unit.
Irving will be a major aspect of that second part.
