Jesse Kolodkin: The Kyrie Irving Era in Brooklyn ends the same way it began

basketball player runs the court

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving celebrates after scoring during the first half of the team's NBA basketball game against the Minnesota Timberwolves back in 2019, in New York. Irving had 50 points but the Nets fell to the Timberwolves in overtime, 127-126. 

The Era of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in Brooklyn is over. It’s not all the way over with Durant but it certainly feels as though the writing is on the wall now that Irving has been sent to the Dallas Mavericks.

The Irving and Durant Era of the Brooklyn Nets truly can be defined by the very first game of its tenure.
