Kyrie Irving Returns to the Brooklyn Nets

After missing the first 35 games of the regular season, Kyrie Irving has been welcomed back to the Brooklyn Nets (23-12), as he will be in the starting line-up against the Indiana Pacers (14-24) at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

The Brooklyn Nets point guard is anticipated to make his return to the hardwood floor as many fans of the Nets and followers of the NBA have awaited to see the Nets Big Three back in action for the first time in the 2021-2022 NBA season.

Much discussion was been made around the league and social media in late October when Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai indicated that Irving would not be a part of the team. Irving would not be eligible to be a consistent participant due to New York City vaccine mandates. The mandate would not allow Irving to play in home games at Barclays Arena but Irving would have no issue playing in away games around the league.

Championship Bound

So now that Irving is back, what will the Brooklyn Nets look like? There has been a three month wait to see if the investment which the Nets have bought into will pay dividends. Irving, Harden, and Durant only played a total of 202 minutes together last regular season and many Nets fans hope this season will be their year to lift the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Nets fans know the team is championship bound but will they achieve such high expectations?

The team has announced a starting line-up of Kyrie Irving, James Harden, David Duke Jr., Kevin Durant, and Nic Claxton. Irving joins Durant who has been in the MVP discussion and is averaging 29.7 points, 5.7 assists, and 7.7 rebounds this season.

This is the first time we will see the Nets Big Three as they last played together in the playoff run which ended in Game 7 against the Milwaukee Bucks.
