Kyrie Irving trade? It’s time to retire
Just when you thought the Super Bowl was going to dominate the news, Kyrie Irving shocked the NBA world by demanding a trade. The Brooklyn Nets have days to trade a disgruntled player with a bunch of baggage. Irving put the Nets in a bad spot by demanding a trade, but he is talented and he can change the dynamics of a team. The Kyrie Irving trade is hard to watch because Kyrie holds all the cards. Or does he?
Timing is everything
Kyrie Irving requested this trade with a purpose. He will be a free agent this summer. If the Nets don’t trade him, he will give up on the season. If Irving does not go to the team he prefers he will make things difficult for Brooklyn. Irving has one goal. Get traded to another team (that he chooses) and in the meantime, destroy Brooklyn.

NBA trade rumors: Where does Kyrie go?
Kyrie Irving is an incredible basketball player, but he does come with some baggage. The biggest connection is the LA Lakers. LeBron James knows Kyrie and there is every reason to believe that LeBron can make this happen. But, there is no need to overshadow the accomplishments of LeBron by making Kyrie the headline. Irving has burned bridges with the best players in the league. Although he has an opportunity to select where he will play, many of the contenders don’t want to bring Irving into the fold.
The perfect trade
The perfect trade for Kyrie Irving has nothing to do with Irving. It has to be the perfect combination of players and teams that are willing to make the market move. The Toronto Raptors, Atlanta Hawks, and Minnesota Timberwolves are all teams that have the players and the assets to get Irving. But will Irving want to go to those teams or do those teams want him?
It’s all about Irving
Irving put the Nets in a tough spot. Brooklyn has to take a bad deal and get rid of him or wait until the end of the season and lose Irving with nothing in return. There will be a team that will trade or sign Irving, but that is a mistake. Although talented, Irving is not a team player and he hurts every team he plays for.
It’s time for Irving to retire.
