Someone with gold, or in this case, the ability to cut through cluttered paint, does everything according to the rules.
The conventional wisdom is that Kyrie Irving is a bad worker. He needs full authority to make key decisions, but he also does not take on the day-to-day responsibility for ensuring that the organization operates at optimal efficiency. While the Nets’ other top player recovers from injury during the season, he said the team needed more points – 40 games a season, 36 of which he didn’t play. This leads to another problem, you can’t rely on Irving to come to work. Whether it was the time he left for personal reasons in 2021, that he did not do what was required of him for medical reasons to be able to work legally in the city he works in, or simply that his body can’t take it and he forced to miss time due to injury.
The Brooklyn Nets reportedly indecisive dedicate yourself to this unreliable employee on a long-term basis. Irving can choose the last year of his contract and earn $36.9 million. He would certainly prefer to develop what could be the last major contract extension of his NBA career. If no deal is reached, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reveals that Irving wants to be traded but has list of the teams he wants to play for. These are the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks, Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks and Philadelphia 76ers.
No player of Irving’s caliber would want to be traded to any of the 29 other NBA teams, but it’s still pretty cocky of him to make so many demands when he chose not to play in 53 games last season because of his refusal of the COVID vaccine. The Nets wouldn’t be so obligated to deal with Irving, except for the fact that whatever happens to him will affect Durant’s future. Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Durant is keeping an eye on the Nets and is “considering options for his future”.
What makes this situation even more interesting is that Irving doesn’t seem to have his future tied to Durant. They both went to the Nets to play alongside each other and have significant say in the organization’s decision-making. With a list of teams that Irving is interested in – the rumor mill has already been swirling As for the Lakers and Knicks, only the Knicks and possibly the Heat can make a deal to bring in both players.
Another moment for a lesson for children. For most of them, accountability will be the most important trait in the workforce. Employers want to be sure that the people they hire can be relied upon to show up and actually do the task they were hired for on a daily basis. That’s the bare minimum you need to keep a job, unless you bring something more important.
Irving pushes it to the limit in every area sports. In sports, coaches instill in people of all ages that the most important ability is accessibility, and the next most important is knowing your role and doing it. Irving is not as bad as the former president, twice accused of trying to undermine democracy. However, Irving was available, and when he was supposed to lead, he was not.
However, this former president has never gone to jail and may return to work, and Irving is going to bet on where his basketball future will take him in the next few weeks, and it will earn him about the same good salary. like you can do in the NBA.
Most of you kids are better off showing up to work on time and doing whatever your job requires. For some of you who are endowed with talent, connections and/or excellent manipulative skills that will take you much further in life, because then you make the rules instead of following them.
