He's back! Kyrie Irving apparently has won the staring contest with his team, New York City and the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets are bringing the All-Star guard back as a part-time player for games exclusively played outside of New York City, according to sources as told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. "The unfolding circumstances of Brooklyn's season - including injuries, players lost to health and safety protocols and an inordinate minutes load on their superstar players led the team to this move" according to Wojnarowski.
In a blockbuster deal that saw the disgruntled James Harden traded to Brooklyn from Houston, the NBA world was shaken up by yet another superstar forcing his way out of a franchise in search to assemble a superteam.
