Kyrie Irving returns to the show to talk with Eddie Gonzalez about the 2021-22 season, including his New York City vaccine mandate saga, returning to the court and the Nets postseason loss to the Boston Celtics. The seven-time All-Star looks back at the injury that ended his 2021 postseason and how soon he could have returned had the Nets advanced, plus he goes back to his time with the Cavaliers and Celtics earlier in his career. Kyrie also discusses his life off the court, the pressures he faces as a superstar athlete and how that helped form the kinship he shares with Kevin Durant, if he should have made the NBA75, and his title as the “most skilled player ever.” Finally he discusses his outlook on the future of the Nets, where the team goes from here and much, much more.
