Kevin Durant Gets Completely Honest Over Kyrie Irving’s Absence

Kevin Durant knows what we all want to hear.

The Brooklyn Nets are off to a rough start this season, and  most people are placing  the blame squarely on Kyrie Irving’s shoulders. The team that everyone thought would be in the Finals,  is struggling for a variety of reasons, but the main one has to be the absensce of their star guard.

Kevin Durant acknowledged his teammate’s absence while also addressing the elephant in the room after Brooklyn’s 106-93 loss to the Miami Heat.

“I know what you want me to say… Yeah we do miss Kyrie,” Durant joked in a response to a question about what the Nets’ offense has been missing this season. “We do, he’s a part of our team.

Kyrie is too talented to dismiss his presence. KD knows just how good they can be with Kyrie on the court.

That being said, Harden and Durant will right the ship and get the team on the right track. They’re a playoff team without Kyrie, but a Championship team?

Probably not.
