Brooklyn Nets started the 2020/21 NBA season the best way, dominating two big rivals like Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics. Everything started really well for them but in the next couple of games, things changed for the New Yorkers.
Now they have a 3-4 record and some fans are starting to worry about the future of the team and how they can overcome this slump. They have won only one of their last five games and the alarms are set at the Barclays Center.
Well, that’s not the case for Kyrie Irving, who isn’t panicking over the team’s last results. Kyrie knows the season is young and that the team is still learning to play together and it’s very soon to say they are bound to fail.
Kyrie Irving shut downs crisis narrative over Brooklyn Nets’ bad NBA start
Irving looked very comfortable playing with Kevin Durant during the first games of the season but now things are getting harder for them. Even so, Irving is confident they can get the job done; it’s just a matter of time before everything clicks.
"It’s not going to be put together overnight, nor am I expecting it to, nor am I going to get frustrated over six games or however many games we’ve played. The object of this regular season is to continue to get better and to prepare for the 16 wins in the playoffs,” he said after the Nets lost to Washington Wizards, 123-122.
Irving had the chance to call it a game with a 3-pointer and missed, before Kevin Durant took another opportunity and missed, too, leaving their team helpless and with a win over the Wizards, led by Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal.
