Kyrie Irving was the talk of the 2021-22 season for all the wrong reasons. Be it within his own organization or from NBA fans around the world, he has endured quite a bit of criticism.

Kyrie Irving has not had a professional representative since his sacking from Roc Nation in July 2021. According to the New York Post, Roc Nation was his second agency in just three years. The Nets star is now working alongside his stepmother and has great representation to back him up. Shetellia Riley has served as Vice President of Ad Sales for Black Entertainment Television for the past four years. Prior to that, she was the company’s account manager for over five years.
Despite not playing much in the 2021-22 season, Irving manages to average more than 25 points, 5.3 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game. With Kevin Durant returning for the Nets since their next game against the Miami Heat, it will be interesting to see if Irving gets a chance to play all the games as New York plans to drastically change its Covid-19 mandate.
As word spread through the franchise that Irving wants to stay with the Brooklyn Nets alongside Durant and Simmons, the 29-year-old can choose to play his 2022 option or go into the 2022 NBA offseason as a free agent. Whatever he does, he will surely be one of the best point guards in the modern NBA.
