These aren't good times for the Brooklyn Nets since all their players are under the storm since reports broke assuring Kyrie Irving wanted to create his own league separated from the NBA. Irving has been against the idea of the NBA resuming season in Orlando amid protests in the US against racism and police brutality, so he doesn't consider going to Walt Disney World the best option.
Kyrie had reportedly shared that in a chat group with his Brooklyn Nets teammates. After the report saw the light, he claimed it was fake and left the group without saying a word. This was a big foul and justice needs to be made here.
According to Brandon 'Scoop B' Robinson of Heavy, the Nets players already have a plan to discover who created this controversy and eliminate the person in question.
"Kyrie Irving's conference call last week was a vehicle for players to voice concerns about going to Orlando. Irving feels attacked because what went from being a conversation amongst players has become personal and the Nets PG feels skapegoated. In regards to the Nets group text controversy: a Nets official tells me that players have their theories and the process of elimination of who said what has been discussed amongst players," Robinson wrote on Twitter.
Fans already started picking who they believe is responsible for this, but only the players will know who betrayed the trust of the team. This is a delicate situation; they are working to fix it, but the damage is already done. The backlash for Kyrie has been huge, no wonder why he feels 'scapegoated.'
