Kyrie Irving has been dominating the sport headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Because of Irving’s seven-game absence due to “personal reasons”, the media and critics were quick to scrutinize his move.

However, some of his colleagues came to the defense of Kyrie.

Cleveland Cavaliers big man Larry Nance Jr. and former Cavs guard Isaiah Thomas brought up all the good things that the Brooklyn Nets superstar has done to the community.

Irving recently bought a house to George Floyd’s family according to retired NBA veteran Stephen Jackson.

It will be exciting to see Uncle Drew return to the Nets now that he will join forces with Kevin Durant and recently-acquired superstar James Harden.
