Didn’t expect people angry at/surprised with Kyrie’s decision. This was always and obviously a negotiation tactic and the only thing that gave it real leverage was he is unpredictable.
Irving as a free agent next summer will be interesting. Expect him at his best this season. – 11:38 AM

More on this storyline

According to NBA insider Shams Charania, the three other teams that had significant interest in a potential trade for the enigmatic Nets superstar were the Dallas Mavericks, the Miami Heat, and the Philadelphia 76ers: “There were a couple of other teams that were poking around at him in opt-in-and-trade scenarios: Dallas, Miami, Philadelphia,” Shams said on the Pat McAfee Show, via ClutchPoints on Twitter. “But at the end of the day, he made a move where he said, ‘I’m gonna commit. I’m gonna go back to Brooklyn, I’m gonna opt-in.” -via Clutch Points / June 29, 2022
