When Kyrie Irving is on the court, he is definitely one of the best point guards in the entire NBA. He has the shiftiest handle in the league and often comes up with dribble combinations on the fly. Currently, Kyrie Irving is putting up 23.8 PPG, 4.8 RPG, and 5.4 APG on the season while shooting 36.8% from beyond the arc.

While it is obvious that the Brooklyn Nets are a fantastic team when Kyrie Irving does play, his availability is limited by his part-time status. Due to New York City's laws regarding individuals unvaccinated for COVID-19, Kyrie Irving is only allowed to play road games.

Brooklyn Nets GM Sean Marks has recently shared that Kyrie Irving is "frustrated" about the fact that he can't "be there" for both home and away games. It is understandable that he is frustrated about his inability to help his team.

It remains to be seen if Kyrie Irving will take action to ensure his availability in the future.
