NBA Rumors: Insider Says Nets Are Prepared to Lose BOTH Irving and Durant

ESPN's NBA Insider Brian Windhorst says the Brooklyn Nets would rather lose BOTH Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant than put up with anymore of Irving's shenanigans.

"The Nets are putting out there right now that they are prepared to lose both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant — they would rather lose them both, than go through what they went through last season, which was a miserable season, under the situation that Kyrie Irving contributed to creating."

Justin Termine on NBA Radio on SiriusXM, doubles down on Windhorst's comment by saying that "Kyrie Irving is such a pain in the ass, is such a distraction.... that the Brooklyn Nets are willing to say goodbye to ... one of the greatest players of all-time (Durant)... if it means we don't have to deal with (Kyrie's) B.S. anymore."

Eddie Johnson, former NBA player, added to it all by comparing Kyrie to "that beautiful house in your neighborhood... It has everything in it... a pool, it's modern, it's pristine, just flat-out beautiful. But it STINKS. 'What is that smell in the house?' That's Kyrie!"

All that's left now is to see if the Nets can clear out that smell.
