Fans were still arguing that the powerhouse team had yet to live up to fans and analysts' expectations before the start of the season.

According to ClutchPoints, Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash recently opened up about his current relationship with the controversial basketball star Kyrie Irving. The Hall of Famer basketball player turned coach revealed that he had a connection with his absent point guard, but he clarified that they have not been talking about business all that much.
Nash noted that he kept in touch with his player, Kyrie Irving, despite his absence from team practices and games, but the two did not tackle any basketball-related topics at all.
"Kyrie, I stay in touch with Kyrie but we don't really talk about basketball just stay in touch and make sure everything is good with him," Nash said.
The Brooklyn Nets head coach kept his communication line open with Irving even though the Nets have barred him from joining the team because he refused to get vaccinated.
Nash said all their conversations have veered away from anything related to basketball and likely from the stand of Irving on the COVID vaccine as well.
