Kyrie Irving has one final message for Nets fans amid trade reports
Kyrie Irving sent a final message to Brooklyn Nets fans on Monday after the reported trade with the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday ended a strange roller coaster of a time for the point guard.
“Thank you NetsWorld fans and supporters for the love on and off the pitch,” he tweeted. “I will forever be grateful that I was able to live out my childhood dream with all of you. It will always be the love of my family and me.”

Brooklyn reportedly agreed to a trade with Dallas for Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith and a handful of draft picks. Irving signed with Brooklyn in the summer of 2019, along with Kevin Durant. However, the game-changing signings yielded just one playoff victory.
Irving’s tenure with the Nets has been tumultuous at best. In 143 games over four seasons, Irving averaged 27.1 points, 5.8 assists and 4.8 rebounds.

The playmaker is rumored to be a part of trade talks with the Los Angeles Lakers. However, NBA reporter Marc Stein reported that Brooklyn team owner Joe Tsai refused to send him to Los Angeles. The move would have reunited him with LeBron James.
James and Irving teamed up to win the 2016 NBA championship after coming back from a 3-1 Finals deficit to stun the Golden State Warriors. However, a bizarre rift would shortly follow and Cleveland would trade Irving to the Boston Celtics.
James appeared to have a three word tweet about the whole ordeal.
“Maybe it’s me,” he wrote.
