One of the most anticipated NBA seasons is upon us. The Brooklyn Nets enter the year as championship favorites, but there’s already been plenty of controversy to address before the regular season has tipped off.
Nets star Kyrie Irving has found himself at the center of daytime TV debates after the Nets responded to his decision not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine by barring him from all team activities. The Nets are also withholding a contract extension from Irving, who has given no indication that he plans to change course and comply with the vaccine mandate.
Without the services of Irving, the team is still left with so many options. Potential MVP candidates Kevin Durant and James Harden. Former All-Stars Blake Griffin, LaMarcus Aldridge and Paul Millsap. A potential Sixth Man of the Year candidate Patty Mills. The Nets have a veteran for every role this season and they are healthy going into the new campaign.
Over at For The Win, Charles Curtis ranked the Nets as the most watchable team in the league.
Via For The Win:
“Kyrie Irving’s decision will hang over this franchise all year — assuming he doesn’t get vaccinated or regulations change — but they’re still the tops with Kevin Durant and James Harden together.”
