Kyrie Irving posted a video on his instagram account, featuring Jay-Z’s song “PSA,” in which he explained his decision to sign with the Brooklyn Nets.
Irving, who grew up in West Orange, New Jersey, says:
“It was, fourth grade, I had just gotten done watching the Nets in the Finals and when I knew that this is a dream that I want to fulfill. I had to manifest that, I had to go get it.
“In my heart I knew I always wanted to play at home. And home is where my heart is. And it’s always been there.”
“Home is where my heart is. And it’s always been there.” 🔥

All it takes is one or two great players to make a franchise relevant again.
