Brooklyn Nets “Unhappy” with Kyrie as Guard Remains Away from Team
It appears as though Kyrie Irving is becoming a rather large problem and his team is growing unhappy.
Irving has been out of action for the past few games citing personal reasons, but according to the Brooklyn Nets, he has fallen off the grid.
That is until tonight.
If Brooklyn’s Kyrie Irving is found to have violated league health/safety protocols, he's facing a proportional game reduction of 1/81.6 of his salary – $410K per game. He would forfeit that money for every game lost because of a mandated isolation. League's probing video now.

As the NBA opens up an investigation related to a maskless family birthday party that Irving has recently attended, Irving was seen tonight taking part in a Zoom call. According to numerous reports, the event was a virtual fundraiser for Manhattan District Attorney candidate, Tahanie Aboushi. Irving was seen enjoying his time as he continues to stay removed from his team.
“We are aware of a video on social media featuring Kyrie Irving at a family gathering,” Nets general manager Sean Marks said in a statement Tuesday. “We are reviewing the circumstances with both Kyrie and the NBA in order to determine compliance with health and safety protocols.”
“Kyrie will have the opportunity to address his absence when he is ready to do so,” Marks added.
The Nets do not expect Irving to be back this week and at this point, the organization is surely trying to find answers to Irving’s continued string of strange behaviour.
Not a good situation for the Nets to be in to say the very least.
