Steve Nash Opens Up About His Relationship With Kyrie Irving

Although there has been less talk about Kyrie Irving in recent weeks, the All-Star point guard’s absence still hangs over the Brooklyn Nets like a dark cloud.

The team has been fine without him, but they are nowhere near the offensive threat they could be with him on the floor.

The relationship between members of the Nets organization and Irving has been rumored to have been strained during Irving’s COVID-19 vaccine-related absence, especially since the team announced that he would not be allowed to play part-time.

Head coach Steve Nash, on the other hand, recently revealed that the 29-year-old point guard is still in touch with him.

Nash said he’s still communicating with Irving before the Nets’ game against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday.

The head coach explained that he keeps in touch with his point guard to see how he’s doing, but that when they do catch up, they “don’t really talk about basketball.”

It’s unclear when or if Irving will return to the Nets this season.

He’s under contract in Brooklyn until the end of the season, with a player option for 2022-23, but he hasn’t indicated whether he’ll return due to the New York City COVID-19 mandate.

The Nets could have used Irving against the Warriors on Tuesday night.

Brooklyn was defeated by Golden State 117-99 as stars Kevin Durant and James Harden failed to produce at their usual levels.

Steph Curry led the Warriors to victory, scoring 37 points on 9-of-14 three-point attempts.

Although the Nets would have benefited from having a talented scorer like Irving against the Warriors, especially with Durant and Harden off their game, they have managed to get by without him so far this season.

Brooklyn currently sits in third place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 10-5.

Nash may be in contact with Irving, but he doesn’t appear to be pleading with him to return any time soon.
