The Brooklyn Nets finally got rid of Kyrie Irving, the ‘egoist’.
Irving was in Brooklyn and left a nuisance.
Irving, who left the Boston Celtics ahead of the 2019-2020 season and made a new nest in Brooklyn, did not play properly almost every year due to injuries and personal issues.
He played only 40 games due to an Achilles tendon rupture in the 2019-2020 season, and played 54 games in the 2020-2021 season.
In the 2021-2022 season, he played only 29 games due to refusal to receive the Corona 19 vaccine.
He also missed eight games this season for linking to anti-Semitic propaganda.
However, after the controversy, he focused solely on basketball, averaging 27.1 points and 5.3 assists in 40 games. 스포츠토토
He quietly focused on basketball for Brooklyn’s championship, but requested a trade and was traded to the Dallas Mavericks.
Opinions are divided as to whether Irving will properly help Luka Doncic in Dallas.
There are opinions that he will quietly play basketball, but there are also negative opinions that he will cause trouble wherever he goes. It is to point out Irving’s egoism.
Lee Bing’s assists this season are averaging only 5.3. His scoring average is 27.1 points. He only cares about his own score.
On the other hand, Nicola Jokic (Denver Nuggets), who was selected as MVP for two consecutive years, is different from Irving. He is averaging 26.8 points and 10.1 assists. Overwhelms Irving in assist boom.
Jokichi prioritizes team performance over individuals, saying, “If I assist, I can be happy with the scorer. But if I score, only I will be happy.”
Irving, however, puts assists aside and only cares about scoring.
Jokic prioritizes the team, but Irving is only focusing on individual performance.
