With only 16 games into the season, the Brooklyn Nets are still without their star point guard Kyrie Irving. Without Irving, the team has posted a record of 11-5, but have several losses against playoff-caliber teams.

Irving’s future with the team is still uncertain and with Brooklyn dealing with injuries and other setbacks, the thought of trading him just gets more and more tempting. It also forces the 29-year-old to grow more persistent in not getting the vaccine as each game goes by.

Former Nets star Deron Williams is set to take on NFL running back on December 18. With media speculation accompanying the 37-year-old until that showdown, Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson addressed the Nets’ issue with the crafty guard to get his thoughts.

“From what I’ve seen, they’re still a good team without Kyrie (Irving), but they definitely need him,” said Williams. “I hope everything gets figured out. But as far as my thoughts on Kyrie, he’s doing what’s best for him. I can’t feel any otherwise, I respect what he wants to do.”
