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.

As you can imagine, NBA Twitter had a field day after the news broke and had some hilarious reactions. Here are some of the very best:
