One of the most outspoken commentators around, Stephen A. Smith, didn’t hold back on the Brooklyn Nets star point guard Kyrie Irving:
“I would never give him a long-term contract again! He cannot be trusted. … He is one of the absolute professionals at missing work.”
Recently, Irving told reporters that he is ‘loving where I’m at’ and there’s ‘no way’ he can leave his superstar teammate Kevin Durant.
In 2019, Kyrie Irving signed a 4-year / $136,490,600 contract with the Brooklyn Nets, including $136,490,600 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $34,122,650.
