Of course, I couldn’t help but feel bad for Irving.
Reporter Mark Stein of ‘The Stain Line’ reported on the story behind the Kyrie Irving trade on the 6th (hereinafter referred to as Korean time).
From trade requests to transfer deals. The Kyrie Irving drama ended quickly. While several teams participated in the Irving drama, the uniform he would wear became the Dallas blue uniform.
Even when the news of the trade request came out, the team that was most likely to be mentioned as the destination for Irving was the Lakers. The Lakers are a team with LeBron James, who collaborated with Irving to win the championship. Lebron is known to have strongly supported the signing of Irving.
But as a result, Irving won’t be wearing a Lakers uniform this winter. Brooklyn decided to trade Irving to Dallas, which offered a package of Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, and a future first-round pick.
It is Brooklyn who wanted to maintain the winnow keynote rather than rebuilding while sending Irving. Rather than the Lakers, who were able to offer Russell Westbrook, future picks, and prospects, Dallas’ package, which brought out two clear senses of power, was much more attractive. 스포츠토토
But even if the Lakers’ package was satisfactory, it wouldn’t have been easy for Irving to head to Los Angeles. This is because Brooklyn owner Cho Tsai did not want to send Irving to the team he wanted.
“Instead of sending Kyrie Irving to the Lakers or Phoenix, Brooklyn got Spencer Dinwiddie and Dorian Finney-Smith, who would ultimately keep the Winnow ethos they most wanted,” said Stein. By sending him to another team, he achieved one of his owner’s goals.”
Considering Irving’s eccentricities in Brooklyn for nearly three and a half years, this is understandable enough. Starting with inappropriate remarks that could harm the locker room atmosphere, Irving caused endless controversy with unauthorized departure, non-vaccination incidents, and anti-Semitic movie promotion.
Irving only appeared in 143 games in three and a half seasons in a Brooklyn uniform. At the club, no matter how great a player Irving is, he is bound to get fed up. Chai Cho, the owner of the club, who invested a huge amount of luxury tax and worked hard to manage the club, also has hard feelings for Irving.
In their recent contract extension negotiations with Irving, Brooklyn offered a contract with a few conditions instead of a full guarantee. As a result, Irving was said to have felt insulted, and the game changed when he asked for a trade.
Irving and Brooklyn’s accompaniment, which had no windy days, ended without winning. What will the new team Dallas with Irving do?
