The Brooklyn Nets were all set to romp to a successful campaign soon. With the in-form trio of Durant, Irving and Harden, the team never looked stronger. However, due to some personal decisions made by Irving, the franchise took a late call that they wish to trade the 29-year-old. If the move goes through, the team will be left with a huge void to fill. Kyrie has not made things easier for them, and things are beginning to get very ugly.
