Kyrie Irving

The Brooklyn Nets are opening a new chapter in team’s history with two NBA superstars in Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant joining the roster last summer. But Irving does not think the Nets are a championship team yet.

Kyrie Irving said on the coming season, per Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News:

“We’re here to build. I’m not saying we’re a championship team right now, we’re not going to say this is what it’s going to be going forward. We’re just here to observe one another, care for one another and be here to enjoy playing basketball. But first and foremost is our family. I think sometimes that can get confused in this league about who we are as human beings. I’m always going to be an advocate for that, and (the Nets) are advocates that we’re humans first and then we’re basketball players.”

The Nets will also be without Kevin Durant who will most likely miss the entire 2019-2020 season.
