Kyrie Irving looked at the situation of his “best friend” Kevin Durant — requesting a trade that made him the center of the NBA universe and throwing the Nets’ future into uncertain territory — and he summed up what the past few months have been like for Brooklyn.
“Being in the middle of it, it was kind of like a clusterf–k,” Irving said Monday at Nets Media Day about Durant’s offseason, in which he tried -— unsuccessfully — to force his way out. “All of this — all of the stories. We’ve come up with all of the narratives surrounding this team that it’s hard to answer every single question.”
There were plenty for him and his team to answer. Irving, who opted in to the final year of his contract, said he understood why Durant wanted out.
