Kyrie is not an evil man. Kyrie has so much goodness in his heart. You see that in the number of social causes he has supported, such as the KAI Family Foundation. But the more he raises issues that he cannot support eloquently, the more he loses his credibility. He must learn to study his advocacies more closely, lest he embarrass himself and the people he claims he represents. He is a talented person. With a lot of followers in social media. He needs to understand that he has a responsibility to guide these people properly.
The team’s performance will depend on Kyrie’s status and its effect on team chemistry. If New York’s COVID mandate softens up, then Kyrie will be able to play full-time. But it doesn’t end there. How will his part-time play right now affect team chemistry? Who takes the alpha-dog role in the team? Unless they’re able to resolve these issues, then expect the Nets to be just another bystander watching the title fight from the sidelines.
The Nets have been clawing and scratching to get a chance at that elusive crown. Durant and Harden have had to work double-time to keep the team in contention. To have Kyrie play in only half the games mocks the very essence of teamwork.
What is evident at this point is that – despite the credentials and the overflowing talent – all is not well in the Nets’ locker room. And it will take a super effort – and a lot of sacrifice from all sides – to successfully traverse this emotional minefield that threatens to blow up the Nets’ locker room.
Welcome to the excitement and glitz of the NBA Playoffs. We are now down to the last eight teams in the NBA. The top sixteen
Team chemistry. The abundance of talent in a team will not necessarily translate to a successful campaign. First, players must learn to accept each other, must enjoy playing together, must genuinely root for each other.
