Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant are making all possible efforts to get the Nets going and win some games. As at the moment, they are 1-5 and even the fans have given up on them. As Kyrie Irving being a “Free-Thinker” has hurt a lot of people around and is also not apologizing or taking those actions down. But is backing those up. The situation he’s stuck in right now is very wrong, especially when the team is down and needs him.

But fortunately, the locker room energy is good and the players still believe in each other. Also if the Big Three of Ben Simmons, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are able to build a solid chemistry and pick up a rhythm. And, Simmons is able to step up and back the other two. They’ll still have a shot at the championship this year. As not many teams in the league are capable of stopping them if they are working as a unit and are in good form.
