2 key factors that ruined the relationship with Nets

The Brooklyn Nets are beyond repair as Kevin Durant looks to get out of there yesterday.

Kevin Durant’s relationship with the Brooklyn Networks allegedly fell apart for these two reasons.

Sports Illustrated’s Howard Beck trying to understand all the nonsense about the Brooklyn basketball franchise. After gathering information about the completely toxic situation, Beck believes there were two main reasons Durant wanted to leave Brooklyn: “A rocking Nets season ending in a first-round playoff sweep; and the franchise’s soured relationship with [Kyrie] Irving, his close friend.”

Again, why on earth did Durant voluntarily leave the Bay Area basketball paradise for this?

Looks. The only way this era of Nets basketball was going to work was through a fucking video game. The combination of moody Superstars, a head coach with absolutely no experience and a franchise that has never won anything to speak of, what could possibly have gone wrong? Durant will walk, Irving will not take mandates, James Harden will retire and Ben Simmons will not play at all.

Durant may still be close friends with Irving, but he’s just too unreliable to build a championship team at this point. While he may move to a team with another proven star, Irving’s days when he was a focal point for a team he can build around are probably over and over. For Durant, he is no longer a child either. Durant is well into his 30s and may soon be past his prime.

What’s important for Durant here is that if he’s actually on the road again, he’ll need to pick a franchise that’s essentially a stable one. Whether it’s returning to the Miami Heat, the Phoenix Suns, or even the Golden State Warriors somehow, Durant needs to go somewhere where chaos isn’t part of their culture. He might bring some of that Nets nonsense, but it’s fine for what it is.

There’s never been a better time for the Nets to hit the reset button as a franchise than now.
