Kyrie Irving does a lot of wonderful stuff for the community.
With that being said he does have responsibilities as a player as long as he wants to play in the NBA. If you need personal time for mental health that is fine, but you have to communicate things with your team and coach.
That seems to be the issue the NETS are having.
Communication between Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets “has been minimal, but the front office has made it clear that they’re unhappy with the superstar’s actions,” according to Anthony Puccio of The Association. Puccio adds that “the team’s patience is growing thin.”
The video of him partying with his sister while being away from the team probably didn’t help matters.
Here is what the Nets had to say about that.
“We are aware of a video on social media featuring Kyrie Irving at a family gathering. We are reviewing the circumstances with both Kyrie and the NBA in order to determine compliance with health and safety protocols. Kyrie remains away from the team due to personal reasons. A date of his return has yet to be finalized. In the meantime, we will continue to stay focused on our organizational goals.
“Kyrie will have the opportunity to address his absence when he is ready to do so.”
