Doug Gottlieb: "Let's be honest, the Nets sold their soul. And they HAD a soul...While Kyrie Irving rightfully deserves a huge chunk of the blame, so do the Nets because they HAD their happy little organization. Then they had a player who grew up in New Jersey supposedly longing to play for the Nets, he went against every part of what their culture stood for, and yet they signed him because he brought Kevin Durant with him. Because the talent was too much to resist. And now...it's over. Trade him, get as much as you can in return, and then you probably gotta trade Kevin Durant and you've gotta start all over."
