“I don’t think that’s a good thing for a team trying to win a championship,” Nick Wright said of the conversation surrounding Kyrie Irving’s home game

The brooklyn network find myself in a precarious situation halfway through Season. They are inserted between Kyrie Irvingthe inability to play home matches and the team’s inconsistent play to date.

“They don’t have a certain continuity, now it’s even less continuous,” Nick Wright spoke on a recent episode of First Things First. “Initially it was ‘we’re going to have three big events all year’, then ‘Kyrie’s coming out this year, and we’re going to work it out.’

“Now it’s ‘we have him for the road games, and maybe at some point we’ll have him for the home games, so do we really need to work just with the KD/Harden stuff, or will Kyrie be there?'”

Brooklyn has struggled with health, like Kevin Durant, James Harden and Irving both failed for one reason or another. But now, with the entire team almost prolific, the question becomes, “Is Irving’s presence in road games a help or a hindrance?”

There’s no doubting the superstar keeper’s level of talent, but the reality is that he won’t play more than 50% of the team’s remaining games. Brooklyn couldn’t build a rhythm as he went in and out of the rotation. That not only reduced Irving’s ability to impact, but also hurt the flow of the team.

Kyrie Irving kills any potential rhtyhm for the Nets’

“The Nets beat the #1-seeded Bulls – the best win of the season, the best game they’ve played all year,” said Wright. “And the story is, is Kyrie going to play home games? … I don’t think that’s a good thing for a team trying to win something big.”

“The Nets beat the #1-seeded Bulls – best win of the season, best game they’ve played all year. And the story is Kyrie is going to play the game at home? … I don’t think that’s good for me. a team trying to win something big.” – @getnickwright https://t.co/RGOxIS6bUT

The Eastern Conference has improved dramatically from recent seasons, and teams like the Chicago Bulls have quickly risen to prominence, while the Milwaukee Bucks continue to be strong contenders. Even the teams that are languishing at the end of the game are still tough opponents to play every night.

Therefore, the inconsistency in rotation will often manifest. For every claimed win, such as Wednesday’s game in Chicago, Brooklyn will come with a dizzying, headache-inducing loss — like the loss to the injured LA Clippers on January 2.

Whether Kyrie plays games at home won’t change the Nets’ biggest issue of the past few weeks. Their intensity, especially in defence, is too inconsistent. They constantly let inferior teams suspend the game and come back upstream.

Perhaps Irving’s partial return will be enough to spur Durant and Harden to a higher level of play. But in all likelihood, the Nets still lacked a defensive presence and a true leader in the ring.

For all the fanfare surrounding the return of their All-Star guard, the truth is that Irving has further complicated the puzzle for Steve Nash and his coaching staff. And it will probably take most of the season to figure out where the pieces will go.
