Kyrie Irving has brutally responded to a Los Angeles Lakers fan pleading with him to join the team after reportedly wanting out earlier this summer. The Brooklyn Nets point guard had reportedly wanted out of New York, with rumours of him reuniting with LeBron James with the Los Angeles Lakers.
However, the 30-year-old is now said to be committed to the Nets this season, with Kevin Durant and Ben Simmons set to return to the team. Durant himself had also reportedly asked to be traded, and was strongly linked to the Boston Celtics for Jaylen Brown, however, that move did not materialise and both players remained with their respective sides.
At an open training session, Irving had been signing signatures for fans, with one man pleading for him to join the Lakers. Irving laughs and shakes his head before sounding like he says: “No chance.”
The @NetsKingdomAJ account tweeted the clip, and also took a shot at the Lakers with the caption: “Lakers Fans Down Bad,” it read, with two skull emojis. “Flew in to beg Brooklyn Nets Kyrie Irving.” There were two further laughing emojis to emphasise the amusement.
