Tuesday’s @LockedOnLakers podcast! Kevin Durant reiterates his trade request. How will this affect KD, Kyrie, and the Lakers? Plus, the commonalities between Brooklyn’s mess and the Lakers’ with Russ. #FirstListen @LockedOnNetwork @LockedOnNBAPods…11:08 AM

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving’s relationship with the Nets coaching staff has been a wild ride…
A Thread 🧵
Back in 2019, KD claimed that one of the reasons he wanted to come to Brooklyn was because of head coach Kenny Atkinson (based on som YouTube research): AM

Tom Ziller @teamziller
Went long on the latest news in this season of APOCALYPSE NETS. 🔓
Joe Tsai’s options:
1. Fire Marks & Nash
2. Trade KD & Kyrie
3. Change KD’s mind
4. Call KD’s bluff
I don’t think No. 4 is in the Nets’ best interest. But I’m rooting for it.…8:58 AM

Kyrie and KD for Anthony Davis – 10:07 PM
Ben Rohrbach @brohrbach
The only way you can consider Sean Marks a failed GM is to think entrusting his team to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving was the failure. – 9:54 PM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Kyrie has had some amazing, incredible one-liners in his remarkable career, but this one was maybe the best:
“When I say I’m here with Kevin (Durant), I think that it really entails us managing this franchise together alongside Joe (Tsai) and Sean (Marks),” PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
When Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving chose the Nets in the summer of 2019, and the Nets said “yes,” they failed to read the terms and conditions that come with these unique superstars. More for @NYDNSports…6:20 PM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
The Nets won more playoff games (1) in 2019, with Kenny Atkinson as head coach and Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen, D’Angelo Russell on the roster, than they did in 2022 with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving on the roster.
And in 2019, Brooklyn had tons of cap space and all their picks – 3:29 PM
Andrew Sharp @andrewsharp
Thinking back to that podcast where Kyrie said, “here, we feel like we’re all head coaches.” What an era! – 3:05 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
With all that being said about picking between KD or the coach and GM, I’d keep an eye on the Kyrie situation again
Not a report lol – 2:38 PM

More on this storyline

Ric Bucher: Joe Tsai has already shown he’s willing to play hardball with Kyrie by taking a max extension off the table almost immediately. Now, part of that may be Kyrie’ doing. I’m told he wanted his new contract to guarantee he wouldn’t have to play more than 60 games in a season and would not have to play any back-to-backs which he apparently referred to as inhumane. -via Apple Podcasts / August 11, 2022
Ric Bucher: I’m told that they wanted to trade Kyrie midway through this past season, and KD told them absolutely not. And they went along with it. Now, I’ve also been told while they’re still good friends, that maybe KD doesn’t value him quite the same way as a teammate. I’m not so sure about that. -via Apple Podcasts / August 11, 2022
Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson, M.A. : Kyrie Irving’s focus for this season is “all about killing it.” “He’s holding up his commitment and there’s an excitement.” Per source: “He’s opted in. He’s gonna play.” “He’s in the gym nonstop.” -via Twitter / August 10, 2022
