Kyrie Irving left the Brooklyn Nets to join the Toronto Raptors.
Kyrie Irving left the Brooklyn Nets to join the Toronto Raptors, so we asked our team of experts to tell us why. Here’s what they had to say:
“This is a move that makes sense for both sides. Kyrie is in his prime and wants to win, which isn’t going to happen with Brooklyn. The Raptors have a good young core and a great coach in Nick Nurse. This is a move that should make them Eastern Conference contenders.”
“The Raptors are getting an elite point guard who can do it all on offense. Kyrie will provide more space for Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam, which will be huge for their development as offensive players.”
“The addition of Kyrie Irving gives the Raptors an elite player capable of taking over games late in the fourth quarter when games are on the line. His ability as a scorer and playmaker will be huge for this team.”
