Is there really a brotherhood on the Brooklyn Nets?
That’s what fans of the team have been wondering for months now.
The Nets experienced a very rough offseason although, ultimately, nothing ended up happening.
They ended up staying around with the Nets but rumors have persisted that maybe these two aren’t seeing eye-to-eye.

The Nets are trying to dissuade that notion.
They posted a picture of both Durant and Irving on a court with a simple word: “Brothers.”
If these two players are able to work well and truly build their bond stronger than ever then the Nets have a chance.
But if one or both of these two don’t perform well in 2022-23 then the season will be a disaster.
Kevin & Kyrie Leading The Way
The fate of the Nets really does rest on the shoulders of both Durant and Irving.
These are the two stars of the team and they have been tasked with leading it to greatness.
On their own, they are two of the biggest and best stars in the NBA – so why haven’t the Nets made the Finals yet?
There has been a lot of bad luck, injuries, and controversial choices that have kept the team from fully functioning.
But that is supposedly all in the past now and all that stands in the team’s way is its lack of unity.
If Durant and Irving feel like real brothers and are able to spread that kinship to others then the team’s chemistry and culture will thrive.
Perhaps that is the piece that has been missing the most.
