Kyrie Irving was not in the room when the Nets did their research in the group Wednesday in Brooklyn, but he was there in the spirit. Team managers have found it time to take a look at Irving for his dedication to the competition, and in hindsight, any well-meaning fan would say, “Amen to it.”
Superintendent Sean Marks was asked if he needed to tell Irving directly that his pages, weeks and status issues would no longer be allowed, and that physical injury was the only legitimate reason for not being available if he wanted to remain on the Net.
“I think this will be a negotiation,” GM replied. “It’s a team game and you need everyone on the pitch.”
Sounds good, good and orderly. In their first phase of steering for a first-round pick-up, the Nets have done the right thing by sticking to a $ 36-million-a-year guard who rarely comes to work. Wise.
But the last time the Nets fought Irving, depriving him of the opportunity to play street games when the local vaccine banned him from playing at home, he eventually succumbed, which can be said to have been Faustian having the spirit left to sell.
Any legitimate competitor could have exposed the Nets in a competitive game to what they were – weak, unconnected and small – and it just so happened that it was the Celtics who did this. Then there were Marks and head coach Steve Nash arriving at their postmortem presser, the poor performance was delayed by discussions he had with team owner Joe Tsai about all his money spent on the team. Marks answered many questions and explained many, and rightly so.
He is the one who caused the chaos. He is the one who will fail to cleanse.
For Marks, life in the NBA was as simple as the player, coach and senior at San Antonio, while full-time head coach Gregg Popovich and full-time senior Tim Duncan encouraged the players to learn more. who competed with the walk-without selfishness and grit. The Spurs had all the qualities that Marks admitted his team lacked because of what he did.
Marks had no choice but to sign Kevin Durant and Irving in 2019. No sensible senior would deny the chance to get a KD, even though the crazy genius Irving was not fond of his side because of his celestial methods.
But after Marks sold James Harden – sending Jarrett Allen, Caris LeVert and starting carriers around the world – he knew he was finding a player who could be a threat to his team’s health. Marks was not required to do this, but he still did and paid the price. Forced to move Harden, GM was well aware that his new contract, Ben Simmons, could be the only NBA star with fewer colors than Irving.
The Nets came out curious. If they had any culture, it was a player appeasement culture. Marks vowed that this was not the case, emphasizing the difference between assassinating celebrities and informing them of major elections and giving them final sayings to staff. But Marks is struggling with a reliability problem right now, and he should not be skeptical.
He failed to attempt to form a real team by assembling an All-Star team on the fly, led by All-Star novice, Nash. This is why Marks was so busy Wednesday to offer that the Nets should stop talking about non-basketball-free distractions, to give back to the hungry and brave players, and that everyone in the organization (starting alone) should look in their glasses.
To this day, as Nets officials try to identify their major problems, it seems that Irving’s image continues to manifest itself in those glasses.
Is the council being traded for a long-term summer increase for the point manager, who could step out in the final year of his contract?
“I think that’s what we’ve been discussing and we’ll continue to discuss and discuss all this time,” Marks said.
No, that did not sound like yes.
“We’re looking for guys who want to come here and be involved with something bigger than them,” said Marks, “a volunteer game, playing basketball, and being available. And this is not just for Kyrie, but for everyone here.”
But especially for Kyrie, of course. When Marks identified those most affected by the franchise, he identified himself, Tsai, Nash and Durant. He did not name Irving, who speaks as having just finished his former Boston Brooklyn team.
In the end, it would be very difficult for the Nets to sell Irving, or sign-and-sell, or allow him to leave after exit without return. By the end of the summer they can have supervisors having a hard time talking to the player, the player promising to be available, the two parties agree to expand and then Irving does what Irving has been doing – good, bad and bad.
That’s the problem with Sean Marks. And that’s the problem with Sean Marks.
