Kyrie Irving had become a hot commodity in last year’s offseason, particularly because of his contract situation with the Brooklyn Nets. Reports suggested that Irving could likely find a new team after talks about his future with the Nets have gone stagnant.

Then, out of nowhere, Irving shocked everybody when he exercised his $36.9M option with the Brooklyn Nets for the 22-23 season, after all.

Kyrie reportedly even shocked his team because he never informed the Nets of his decision before it was reported. Kyrie opting in however eventually didn’t change the fact that his Nets future is unclear at best.

While after that, most of the Nets drama has made its way over to Kevin Durant, it was back in Irving’s corner through these past couple of days.

Out of the blue, Kyrie Irving, who actually seemed happy and thriving this year, requested a trade out of Brooklyn before the deadline, and things moved rather quickly from there, as yesterday, the Nets traded him to the Dallas Mavericks.

Brooklyn sent Irving to the Mavs in return for Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, a first-round pick and second-round picks. However, due to the Mavs becoming the surprising winner of the Kyrie Irving sweepstakes, NBA Twitter turned the trade into a beautiful roast of the Los Angeles Lakers, who were the alleged favorites to land Irving and pair him with his former teammate, LeBron James again.
