Kyrie Irving and his future with the Brooklyn Nets was the talk of the NBA world this past weekend.
That’s because there were numerous rumors saying that Irving could be leaving the Nets and heading elsewhere, allegedly to the Los Angeles Lakers.
In the end, it was all smoke and mirrors: Irving is staying with the Nets and all the hype and rumors ended up meaning nothing at all.
At the height of the rumors, people all over the web were talking about how chaotic Irving can be for any team he’s a part of.
Indeed, he usually does “blow up” the teams that he plays for.
But a fan of one former team doesn’t think so, in response to a funny video blaming Irving for so much chaos wherever he goes.

One Cleveland Cavaliers fan on Twitter summed it up perfectly: “We’re fine,” he said.
Sure enough, the Cavaliers are thriving without Irving.
Cavaliers Cruising On
The Cavaliers didn’t make the playoffs last season but for a long while it looked as if they would.
In the end, a series of injuries held them back but one thing is clear: the Cavs are looking better than they have in years.
In fact, they’re in the best shape they have been since Irving left the team.
Parting with Irving wasn’t easy and was full of some drama but it was nothing compared to what the Boston Celtics and Nets have experienced with Irving.
Many Cleveland fans are happy for all the hard work Irving gave them – and the ring he helped them win.
But they’re also happy that he’s now moved on and his certain brand of personality has left with him.
