Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving Earn Rave Reviews From NBA Twitter During Season Debut

Kevin Durant Kyrie Irving

The basketball world has waited to see Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant take the floor together for the Brooklyn Nets.

We had a glimpse in the preseason but their regular-season debut made it official.

Brooklyn blew out the Golden State Warriors, Durant’s former team, 125-99 at home. Irving led with 26 points and Durant added 22.

Their individual stat totals don’t reflect what people saw. Durant is back from his Achilles injury in the 2019 NBA Finals looking exactly how he did before he went down — like the best player in the world.

Irving was up to no good as usual.

Steve Kerr has already called them “scary for the league”.

Seeing the new duo in real action for the first time had Twitter reacting accordingly.

Kevin Love even had to chime in.

The firepower between Irving and Durant offensively is what makes their tandem impossible to predict.

Brooklyn was reportedly on the list of wishlist teams for Houston Rockets superstar James Harden in his recent request to be traded. It’s not yet clear if Harden and the Rockets are ready to move forward together.

The Nets are in a position to be the frontrunner in the Eastern Conference without the likes of Harden.
