Kyrie Irving Appreciation Post

Kyrie Andrew Irving: Even though he can be a pain in the butt sometime as I sit back and think about it all I realized how much I appreciate him. Kyrie was the FIRST Super Star that I can think of that said I WANT the Nets. And without Kyrie there is NO Durant, and without Durant there is NO Harden. Our culture is what got the league’s attention, but I still couldn’t even fathom in a hundred years that the Nets would sign this type of top tier talent. With all the culture branding and re-washing the organization’s image they still had somewhat of a negative stigma around them. I mean just think about it we heard it and seen it all before " Nobody wants to play for the Nets yet alone the top 10% of the league "but Kyrie saw value in the Nets which allowed other top tier talent to take notice. And this is one of the main reasons we are here today. You don’t have to agree with me and that’s fine. But in my eyes Kyrie helped take his hometown Nets to another level and for that reason alone I will forever be grateful!
