He averaged 27.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 5.8 assists during his limited 29 games with the Nets.
As his career sits on the verge of major change, it is important to recognize that Irving is an offensive beast and sometimes nearly impossible to block or guard.

In fact, watching highlights from his time in Brooklyn is like watching a masterclass of a player with great handles, instinct, reflexes, and skill.
Will he be keeping all of that in Brooklyn or will he travel to LA to start the next chapter of his time in the league?
Irving In LA
One of the biggest questions swirling around the NBA right now is if Irving will hang it up in Brooklyn and head west to the Lakers like many have assumed he would.
The rumor mill around that proposed trade has really dried up lately and we don’t know what’s going on in regards to Irving’s future.
If he does go to the Lakers with his old buddy LeBron James, he will greatly increase the team’s chances of making the postseason again.
That’s because he really is an awfully talented player, despite all the drama and controversy that surrounds him.
He’s a smart and fast athlete who still has an awful lot of speed even after 11 years in the league.
Any team would be lucky to have him if they can avoid all the noise and headlines he creates.
Irving still has a lot of fight left in him but no one knows where he will show it off: Brooklyn or LA.
