Kyrie Andrew Irving is an American professional basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). After the Cleveland Cavaliers took him with the first pick in the 2011 NBA draft, he was named Rookie of the Year. He has been an All-Star seven times and on the All-NBA team three times. In 2016, he won an NBA title with the Cavaliers.
He is a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and helps his Lakota people on the reservation in a lot of ways.
He has written, directed, and acted in a number of commercials for “Uncle Drew,” which was made into a full-length movie in 2018. In the 2012 movie Kickin’ It, he played himself. He also did voice work for We Bare Bears (2016) and Family Guy (2018).
Kyrie Irving’s duration in Cleveland ended badly. His time in Boston turned out poorly. His time with the Nets may also end poorly.
The Athletic’s Shams Charania says that Irving and the Brooklyn Nets are currently at a “impasse.” And it could very quickly mean the end of Irving’s time in Brooklyn after just three disappointing seasons.

Irving has a player option for the coming season that would give him $36.9 million next year. But the 30-year-old clearly wants a longer-term deal, and the Nets aren’t sure if they want to make that commitment. (Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News had previously said that the Nets were “hesitant” and then “outright unwilling” to sign Irving to a long-term deal.)
“Conversations between Irving and the Nets about his future have stalled,” Charania wrote. “There is currently a stalemate between the parties, which makes it possible for the seven-time All-Star to consider the open market, those sources said.”
Charania says that if Irving’s time in Brooklyn is over, LeBron James could join the Lakers in Los Angeles. The Clippers and the Knicks are also considered to be “among the interested suitors.”
Irving joined the Nets in 2019, even though he had said he wanted to sign with the Celtics after his contract ended that summer. Irving, who grew up in northern New Jersey, said it was important to him to go “home” when he signed with the Nets.
“Home is where I want my legacy to continue,” he said on Instagram in 2019. “I’m happy to be here in Brooklyn.”
After this year’s playoff run, Irving talked about working with the Nets’ front office to continue building in Brooklyn. Yet, after GM Sean Marks made some negative comments about Irving, it seems like the front office has decided that Irving is no longer a building block.

Brooklyn thought that teaming up with Kevin Durant would lead to a championship, but the Nets have only won one of their four playoff series since then.
And now, it seems likely that the Boston Celtics will sweep the Brooklyn Nets out of the first round of the playoffs, which will be Irving’s last game in Brooklyn.
