After an eventful stint, Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets seem to have hit rock bottom. The 29-year-old has played two seasons with the men in black, averaging close to 27 points. However, his run with Kevin Durant and co. has been marred by injuries, meaning that he wasn’t able to claim a ring. Although the side were the favorites to win the title this year, a personal decision of his has left him high and dry.

Irving came into the season with a renewed energy. After a disappointing end to his last campaign, he was looking forward to succeeding with his teammates. The big-3 of the side seemed to be in fine touch ahead of the new season, but it wasn’t meant to be. Though the #11 wanted to continue with the Nets, the team couldn’t come to terms with his choice. Ever since, he has been on the lookout for a new destination. And off late, he has been posting some cryptic messages that have left fans wondering what’s going on.
