Kyrie Irving Addresses his Future with the Nets

Kyrie Irving wears a lot of hats.

Not an hour after being swept, Kyrie Irving was ready to run it back with his squad. Most notably, himself. Along with Durant, general manager Sean Marks and team owner Joe Tsai.

In a ridiculous postgame comment, Irving announced his intention to exercise his player option to remain with the Nets next season and beyond. He also plans to keep calling shots.

“I don’t really plan on going anywhere,” Irving said, addressing his contract situation. “This is added motivation for our franchise to be at the top of the league for the next few years. I’m just looking forward to the summer and building with our guys here.”

Asked for clarification about his future with Durant and the Nets, Irving laid out his plans, which include “managing this franchise.”

“When I say I’m here with Kev, I think that really entails us managing this franchise together alongside Joe and Sean, just our group of family members that we have in our locker room and our organization.”

Next season as Irving noted will likely feature himself, Durant, Tsai and Marks. Irving failed to mention Steve Nash’s name, who is reportedly going to keep his job.

Personally I don’t think the juice is worth the squeeze when it comes to Kyrie. The man is headache.
