Kyrie Irving returned to action and expressed his desire to make the Brooklyn Nets a “championship-level” team.

“The culture here is we want to be a championship-level organization, and we want to do that for the next few years of us competing, and when I’m done playing basketball that this culture here will still be consistent.

That’s what I’m after. That’s a long-term goal,” Irving said, per Michael Scotto of Bleacher Report.

Irving returned to action after two months and scored a game-high 21 points against the Atlanta Hawks.
