BROOKLYN, NY – The narrative of Kyrie Irving signing with the nets says the Starpoint Guard has always wanted to be there trades off the Cleveland Cavaliers, transferring to his disappointing run with the Boston Celtics. A former Nets player, however, suggests that this may not be the case.
Jared Dudley played in the 2018-2019 season in Brooklyn before signing a contract with the Los Angeles Lakers this off-season. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Dudley, Irving and Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said they could often meet.
"I can see how they work on it," Dudley told SI. "[Atkinson] holds everyone accountable, but he's a player-coach, he's approaching you, but he's taking you to a meeting, watching you movies, and asking you what he can do to make you better."
We will not know if Irving has a better run with his Nets coaches and teammates until the team enters the pitch next season. But right now everything seems to be peachy.
