    Kyrie Irving Reportedly Willing To Sit Out Rest Of Season

    [COLOR=var(--c-grey-600)]Kyrie Irving might have played his final game of the 2020-21 NBA season — because of course.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=var(--c-grey-600)]Irving is prepared to sit out the remainder of the campaign amid his growing frustration with the Nets, KRON-TV’s Jason Dumas reported Wednesday. The star point guard, who has missed Brooklyn’s last five games while the NBA investigates videos of his maskless partying, reportedly is irate with the organization for multiple reasons, including the hiring of head coach Steve Nash.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=var(--c-grey-600)]There also are reports indicating Brooklyn’s acquisition of James Harden was not approved by Irving, who reportedly was not answering the Nets’ calls as recently as Wednesday afternoon.

    The sense of entitlement if true is laughable at best. If directed towards nash then it's bordering on insanity.

    Steve nash revolutionized and changed the way basketball was played at the ripe age of 30+ as an undersized and frail white guy. He was the drew brees of the NBA, sticking it to his former team for not giving him a payday. A true legend of the nba and what he did for basketball.

    Wtf has Kyrie done for the nba besides ride lebron's coattails and piss every single fan base off that he's been on? It would be hilarious if nash benches him when he decides to show up again.

    He signed a contract to play basketball for Brooklyn. He is choosing not to adhere to this contract. The organization should warn him if he doesn't return he will be released without pay/traded. It's that simple (obviously)

    Owners have to take control and make players sit. I know pretty much jack about the NBA. Friends think I'm crazy

    Listened to Simmons, Russilo and other pods tonight.

    Guess what? They said the exact same thing.


    It's why the NBA is such a bad product.


    Pull that shit in the NFL (see Haskins), and your ass is canned, broke in a few years and off the team.

    Brooklyn Nets' Kyrie Irving expected to play vs. Orlando Magic after NBA-ordered quarantine, sources say

    NEW YORK -- Kyrie Irving will lose nearly $900,000 as the result of a violation of the NBA's health and safety protocols, the league announced Friday morning.
    The NBA has fined Irving $50,000 for violating the coronavirus safety protocols, following an investigation into videos of the Brooklyn Nets guard at a family birthday party that began circulating on social media earlier this week.

    The All-Star will also forfeit his salary for the two games he missed during his five-day quarantine, which ends Saturday. According to ESPN's Bobby Marks, Irving will lose $816,898.





    If he continues to test negative for COVID-19, Irving is expected to play Saturday against the Orlando Magic, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. On Thursday, Nets general manager Sean Marks said Irving had been tested daily for COVID-19 while he was away from the team.

    Looks like it's either for health and safety protocols or conditioning.

    Should play Monday

    He was not injured and violated the leagues Covid 19 regulations. And he refuses to show up at his job.

    Why can't the employer just fire his hood rat ass?

    In what world can you ignore your employer, don't show up at work for days and weeks and not get fired? Why does this hood animal get special treatment?

    They did. He wouldn't play,lost his mind, attacked the GM, and lost 50M Assured (HUGE in the NFL), and now has thrown away it all.

    He had to play for peanuts game to game with the Pats. Threw that away.

    Now he's playing for peanuts game to game with TB. No one will every trust him enough to give him guaranteed money at all. (Making 1.66 M a year, hitting ALL incentives.z Amari Cooper Making $20M). Googling it, he's basically making rookie money or less.

    Here's the NBA. Draft a great player, He wants to leave after 4 years to a "big city/team". Rinse and repeat.

    Only a few teams every year can win the championship. Baseball is close with no salary cap, but players aren't the problem. CFB has become this as well. One of the lowest rated every championships this last Monday.

    It's pointless. I said this on the NBA and people though I was crazy. Yet I've heard all the big names, NBA insiders and commentators come out recently and echo my concern.

    If I sign Kyrie (example) to a 5 year deal, and next year he's not happy/wants out/skips games. He can penetrating sit. Seriously who cares? He can go walk the earth to find out if it's truly flat. You'll never get anything for him and he set you back 5 years.

    Don't let the inmates run the asylum?

    Houston did EVERTHING Harden wanted. Got the shooters he wanted, the defensive guys he wanted (lol since he doesn't play it), got Westbrook, got Paul. Then he just wants to dip because suddenly he's unhappy, shows up fat as hell, and I guess is bored with Houston strip clubs?

    Try showing up in the last quarter or playoffs or actually giving a penetrate about defense? His ass is sitting.

    Those 1st round picks mean nothing. Absolutely nothing.

    It's why you never take an OSU QB. Never in the HISTORY of OSU, has there been a successful QB. They play with elite talent, against inferior opponents, throwing to wide open guys.

    Fields has only been there 1.5 years, just like Haskins was there 1 year.

    People on twitter are hammering me. They also hammered me about Cardell Jones, Pryor, Barret, Haskins and now Fields.

    He processes slow, stares down WR's and struggled against Indian and Northwestern.

    Imagine the NFL defensives. He's going to get ****** up bad.

    Yet SUPERSTARS like Durant can go into situations, chill out, play off the ball, and win rings. Harden has never, ever given a penetrate. Bad trade by Brookyln and they will eventually pay for it. There isn't 2 balls per possession. He literally checks out if he's not dribbling.

    In the NFL, MLB, NHL if you half ass, don't show up, give half effort your OWN teammates will destroy you. It's a self regulating system. Old school NBA (Jordon, Barkley, Malone, Ewing, Rodman, Thomas) on and on, wanted to be on different teams to kick each others asses.

    These primadonnas want to have a popping instragram, trade jerseys, kick it at the club, get their points and dip it. It's basically an unwatchable product.

    I was happy to see Giannis show his loyalty to the bucks. The problem is...getting talent around him for a ring.

    Covid hit all these organisations hard and there is no time line when things will get better. No organisation can afford that these useless fukks kill their product even further on top of Covid.
