‘Please no’: Pistons fans panic after seeing Cade Cunningham photo
Kyrie Irving at the Detroit Pistons?
That certainly wouldn’t be music to the ears of Pistons fans, based on the online reaction to a recent photo of Irving and Cade Cunningham being released.
According to multiple reports, the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers are making progress on a potential trade that would see Irving play for the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for Russell Westbrook.
Irving opted for the final year of his contract and will earn $36.4 million in 2022.
Unfortunately, things in Brooklyn have gone downhill, especially since teammate Kevin Durant has now come out and officially requested a trade from the Nets.
“If Kevin Durant is on the first train, Kyrie Irving will be in the back car as far as the Nets are concerned,” reported ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.
Irving hasn’t played 70 games in a season since 2017, when he was a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Detroit is building a young roster, so adding a veteran who is also polarizing doesn’t seem to be in the cards for general manager Troy Weaver.
The hope is that Cunningham, ahead of his second NBA season, was simply looking for insight into improving his game while working with talented players, instead of signing the player who apparently alienated one of the top stars. of the game at Durant.
The online reaction to the duo working together has seen fans hoping the duo will never play together in Motown.
A young, rebuilding team is unlikely to bring in a player who has seemingly torn up several NBA locker rooms.
Here’s a sample of the online reaction.
