Nets Kyrie Irving Era will be a disastrous failure. Brooklyn Nets Kyrie Irving era started off about exactly how the Kyrie realists knew it would, with him being injured. Kyrie fractured his face again during a Nets practice before their first preseason game against the Lakers. He re aggravated the injury during the first quarter of the preseason game, after taking a hit from Rajon Rondo to the face, causing him to promptly exit the game and head to the locker room.
While it was only a preseason, it secretly shows Nets fans what they will be seeing for the next few years to come. The injury prone Kyrie Irving exiting a lot games, and missing a lot of games because injury. During his time with Celtics he spent more time in the playoffs watching his teammates from the bench, than actually playing, because of various injuries.
It gets even worse for Nets fans when you factor in Kevin Durant, who also had his history of being injury prone with very serious injuries. He broke his foot twice during his OKC days, among other injuries. After an Achilles tear, it should be expected he would be even more injury prone similar to Demarcus Cousins.
While Brooklyn Nets may be the new “show in town” in the New York area, Nets fans with high expectations in terms of championships will surely be disappointed. They have a fragile injury prone core, of two players who failed at leading teams to championships. The regular season will be exciting, they will get their wins, but it will never amount to any rings.
