Kyrie Irving was the hottest topic in the NBA until James Harden took over on Tuesday night. The Harden saga is over now and people have turned their attention to the 2016 NBA champion again, who is yet to announce when he will return to play with the Brooklyn Nets.
Irving was recently spotted partying with some family members while going “off the grid” with the Brooklyn Nets. It’s unclear when the player will return to action and the Nets aren’t happy with that situation.
He will have a new teammate in James Harden now and people can’t help but wonder how things are going to be in Brooklyn now that they have three of the biggest superstars in the game. Well, some fans went after Kyrie and his unwillingness to play with his team. Now that Harden and Durant are back together in Brooklyn, most people believe that Irving will be left behind these two on the court.
One comedy account called “Kendrick’s Burner” took a big shot at Kyrie, claiming that he didn’t want to be a Robin for LeBron James and now will be less than that for KD and Harden.
“Kyrie didn’t want to be Robin for LeBron but now he is Alfred for KD and Harden. Crazy how life works…”
Kyrie didn’t want to be Robin for Lebron but now he is Alfred for KD and Harden
Crazy how life works…

Well, it’s unclear if that’s going to be true. Kyrie looked very comfortable playing alongside Durant before he took some “vacations” last week. Now he and KD will have to adjust to having a new teammate that can provide a lot of points for the Nets, too. Meanwhile, NBA Twitter had a blast with that tweet, adding more jokes about Kyrie.
You missing the point bro! Harden and KD will allow Kyrie to play his game! LBJ was playing Kyrie’s position. Selfishness sometime ain’t the worst trait, DEPRIVATION is! When you deprive others what they do best frustration will kick in! Harden don’t want to be the man no more!

Let’s be honest kyrie wasn’t robin to lebron, saying that is trying to change what actually happened during their title run. This is the lebron effect and the media machine trying to manipulate and change narratives

Just shows how bad @$$ Kobe was for allowing the Lakers to relieve Shaq of his duties and then going on to three straight finals while winning back to back titles. That’s #GOATish… pic.twitter.com/RkntzEHkkx

I love how karma keep spinning the block on Kyrie.
From him injuring the knee he was going to say was hurt if Cleveland didn’t trade him
To KD and himself missing wide open jump shots to win a game.
To this great analogy you have mentioned

Harden is one of the greatest scorers in NBA history but he’ll have to change his game a little bit to mesh with his new team. Steve Nash has now more work to do with three superstars on the roster, but he’s made it clear he’s not afraid of that. Some rumors indicate that Kyrie Irving could sit out for the rest of the season and that’s why this trade could be more beneficial for the Nets.
