The reporter joined ESPN’s NBA Today and addressed the “mood” of the team following the controversy. He said, “Everybody is in a holding pattern. This is a waiting game now. The Nets, the NBA, everybody is waiting to see what Kyrie has to say afterward.” Friedell says the point guard’s next step is what matters from here on out.

He continued, “I can tell you there are a lot of people in the organization who are still very upset. They want to see how he explains himself further. There are a lot of people in the league office who are waiting to see what happens later.” The former champion is yet to address the masses on the incident as they all patiently wait.

As far as basketball and the Nets’ overall performance, forward Markieff Morris told Friedell that they are still trying to understand each other. The player further highlighted their recent loss saying they did not play as hard as they would have planned. Brooklyn is coming fresh off of a win against the Pacers breaking their four-game losing streak.
