What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Justin Kubatko @jkubatko 📅 On this day in 2021, the @Washington Wizards Bradley Beal scored 60 points in a loss to the Sixers.
Beal tied the franchise single-game record for points held by Gilbert Arenas. It was his fourth 50-point game, breaking a tie with Arenas for the most such games in franchise history. pic.twitter.com/bY7sEGlDQj2:01 PM

Lang Whitaker @langwhitaker If this Kyrie thing works for Brooklyn, shouldn’t the Nets tank to get as low a playoff seed as possible and ensure they play as few home playoff games as possible? #hoopidea1:51 PM

Sean Highkin @highkin Interesting to me that Kyrie Irving and Klay Thompson are both in the top 10 of All-Star voting despite having not played a single game (prior to Kyrie last night) while Ben Simmons is not. – 1:40 PM

Ian Begley @IanBegley Fan vote accounts for 50% of entire vote to determine All-Star starters. Current NBA players & media panel will each account for 25% of starters vote. Coaches vote for reserves. In addition to BKN’s Durant, NYK’s Rose, BKN’s Harden, Irving, Aldridge are also in top 10: pic.twitter.com/PorCTE2HIz1:39 PM

Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops Every team in the East should want Brooklyn getting the No. 1 seed for the playoffs. They would start every series without Kyrie for the first two games unless New York changes its current mandates. – 12:59 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid Here’s my quick story from last night. Decided to go with five takeaways from a truly unforgettable game.
Takeaway No. 1? Lance Stephenson’s return to Indy nearly spoiling Kyrie Irving’s season debut. #Pacers indystar.com/story/sports/n…11:53 AM

Joe Vardon @joevardon Dear, Kyrie Irving. How does coming back, after 8 months away due to not taking the vaccine, compare to all your other hoops debuts? ‘Nothing comes close to this one.’ ⁦@The Athletictheathletic.com/3054102/2022/0…10:59 AM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis ICYMI: Kyrie Irving provides big reminder #Nets are better with him nypost.com/2022/01/05/kyr… via @nypostsports teammate @MikeVacc10:48 AM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS The Wizards lost on a last-second three for the second time in three games last night. While KCP was on fire, Bradley Beal fouled out and Davis Bertans left with an injury.

Adam Zagoria @AdamZagoria Now on @njdotcom
Kyrie Irving returns in fairy tale fashion to lead Nets to win, but has no plans to get vaccinated anytime soon nj.com/nets/2022/01/k…10:07 AM

Michael Scotto @MikeAScotto Stephen Curry begins 2022 as the leading contender for the MVP award with Kevin Durant in striking distance. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nikola Jokic are also lurking after polling 20 media members who voted on last year’s official NBA awards.

Sopan Deb @SopanDeb Wrote on Kyrie/Nets.
This is essentially the thing. The team has set a precedent in catering to a star player. It could work out! But if it doesn’t, a blow to the credibility of the organization.

Eric Walden @tribjazz Both Rudy Gobert and Hassan Whiteside wound up being ruled out Wednesday for the Utah Jazz’s game in Denver. So, lots of small-ball from Rudy Gay … and a surprise start for the just-returned Udoka Azubuike, who thought the Jazz were joking. sltrib.com/sports/jazz/20…9:22 AM

Justin Kubatko @jkubatko Kevin Durant last night:
✅ 39 PTS
✅ 8 REB
✅ 7 AST
Durant has scored at least 25 points in 64.9% of his career games, the second-highest such percentage in NBA history (Michael Jordan, 71.7%). pic.twitter.com/JEcqbKCpdX9:21 AM

Barbara Barker @meanbarb My take on Game 1 of Big 2.5: Having Irving on roster but not using him is sort of like having a fancy car you don’t drive because headlights don’t work. And then, voila!, one day you realize that you could just drive the car during the day.
newsday.com/sports/columni…9:04 AM

Joe Vardon @joevardon Kyrie Irving was nervous. Out a long time. Worried what teammates would think. And about that jumper. His return to the NBA mirrored his first game at a new high school — a reminder of who Kyrie is as a basketball genius. ⁦@The Athletictheathletic.com/3054102/2022/0…9:00 AM

Yaron Weitzman @YaronWeitzman Kyrie’s season debut symbolized everything the Nets are betting on: Twelve stellar minutes wiping out 24 shoddy ones.
