As New York Knicks and NBA fans continue to wait for the lottery, rumors continue to circulate. Â With less than a week until the lottery, we are going to hear some wild stuff.
One player that could potentially be a topic of conversation is Kyrie Irving. Â The rumor that may pick up some steam is Kyrie to the Brooklyn Nets over the New York Knicks?
A tiny snippet from Real GM suggests just that.
While this rumor would not come as a shock to many, one thing stands out. Â How would Deâ€™Angelo Russell and Irving co-exist? Â Do not get me wrong, I am not a Nets fans and do not watch their games, unless theyâ€™re playing the Knicks.
However, from seeing their styles and the big leap Russell took this year, it would be hard to imagine those two being compatible together. Â Plus, that is Russellâ€™s team. Â He is the point guard. Â Why would Irving want to go there when he would not be conducting the offense.
Despite the Nets making the playoffs, they are still not as big of a market that Kyrie would want. Â The Knicks are. Â The Knicks also do not have a true number one point guard running the show. Â They went through, what, a handful of guys running point this past season? Â The position is still up for grabs.
When you really look at it, Kyrie to the Knicks has a greater probability of occurring than him going to the Nets. Â As much as fans, of both fan bases, will speculate band debate which New York team Irving might choose, deep down we all know the true answer.
