Kyrie Irving, a player who enjoyed $ 136.4 million under a contract with Brooklyn Nets, refused to play the latest matches because “dislike”.
Irving has not played for the Nets since the middle of last week, starting with a victory over Memphis Grizzlies 122-109 on January 7. At that time, the Nets superstar defender told reporters the reason for not appearing, “Simply because I don’t like”. As of today, Irving has not played in the last five Nets games. The coach, teammates as well as the club management had difficulty communicating with him.
The Nets can only explain to the NBA about Irving’s absence for personal reasons. However, the 28-year-old player could not escape the penalty from the organizers. He was found appearing at a birthday party with friends and family without wearing a mask, meaning Irving had violated NBA health and safety regulations. According to US media, for each absence, Irving will have to pay a fine of 460,000 USD.
Since joining the Nets last season, Irving played 27 games, but took twice that number, mostly due to injuries. This season, there are rumors that he conflicts with new coach Steve Nash. With superstar Kevin Durant returning from injury and newly moved James Harden, the Nets are seen as the top contender for the championship, should Irving do.
Irving was elected six times to the NBA All-Star squad, and is seen as the most skilled “dribble” defender in history. This season, Irving just played seven games, averaging 27.1 points per game, better than the average 22.5 points per game in his career.
The defender once shone in the 2016 championship of Cleveland Cavaliers, which was considered a “very talented and handicapped” player. During the time he left the team without reason, he was found to participate in an online meeting on human rights and social justice, including about 150 people. Irving’s somewhat reckless and unprofessional action raised doubts about his motivation for the rest of his career.
