Nets’ star Kyrie Irving talks about James Harden, says the Beard is committed to the Nets, while giving a vague statement
The Brooklyn Nets have been at the center of media attention for some time now. Earlier, it used to be for being an offensive mammoth. A lineup having Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden? An easy ring right? After injuries derailed the Nets’ quest to a championship last season, this year it’s injuries and COVID-19 vaccination both.

James Harden has been an important part of the roster for the Nets this season. Even though his numbers arent the same, he’s risen to the occasion multiple times. However, he hasn’t seemed like himself since KD got injured. Maybe it’s his own share of injuries that are bothering him, or maybe he just wants out.
Guess we’ll have to wait till the 10th to know for sure.
