NBA Rumors: Kyrie Irving Drops Hint About Return?


Just one day after a report that Kyrie Irving's return to the Brooklyn Nets may be getting closer, the unvaccinated banished point guard decided to drop a little nugget on social media to help feed the rumors.

Irving dropped a 7-second video on Instagram aimed down at his feet, as he slipped on his basketball sneakers. That's it. That's the post.  

Now, it could be that he was simply getting in a little advert for his Nike Kyrie 8 shoes, but it's usually a challenge to understand just what's really going on in the mind of the often hard-to-read basketball rebel. 

Irving was sent home by the Nets for the season for refusing to get vaccinated, which leaves him in violation of New York City's vaccination mandate, and unable to play home games at Barclays Center. 

On Monday, Shams Charania reported that "there is a renewed belief that Irving could play this season," and as far as Nets players are concerned, "as soon as possible." 

The story also touched on the increased communication happening between Irving and Kevin Durant. 

So was Irving's latest post his way of saying he's ready to go? With Kyrie, nothing is off the table.
