Kyrie Irving is one of the most criticized players in today’s basketball game. There has been a lot of talk about the star guard this season, amid the guard’s shots at the media and his absences from the team. However, in spite of those things, Kyrie Irving is still a great player and great man, who has shown to be charitable on many occasions. His play speaks for itself on the court.
Every famous athlete is going to have haters, especially on a platform such as Twitter. Kyrie Irving is no different, and there was a recent tweet about him that suggested that Kyrie Irving needed a better team around him so he could win. Kevin Durant roasted the person who sent out that Tweet, repeating the man’s words and using an image of a man in a barren apartment on his phone, suggesting that the user is a broke Twitter troll.
Kevin Durant has been known to interact with NBA fans on his Twitter in the past, often weighing in on issues concerning the NBA and otherwise. It is certainly a unique approach to fan relations from the superstar. While some have clapped back at Durant roasting haters on Twitter, it seems as though he’s just trying to have fun on social media. In this case, we see him come to the defense of his teammate. The statement itself is ridiculous, considering the Brooklyn Nets have two former MVPs in James Harden and Kevin Durant surrounding Kyrie Irving.
The Brooklyn Nets may have missed out on the title this season, but when the 2021-22 season rolls around, they will likely be hungrier than ever to win a championship. The Nets are the likely favorites for next season bar any huge trades. Perhaps Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant can prove the haters wrong, and win a ring in Brooklyn.
