Skip Bayless Calls The Brooklyn Nets Title Contenders


Kyrie Irving’s return to the Brooklyn Nets could not have come at a better time. The Nets rank 16th in Points per game, 26th in Rebounds, and 11th in assists in the NBA. They dropped games against Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks on their road trip before defeating Charlotte Hornets 94-98. Their win against Memphis Grizzlies began their two game win streak. Kevin Durant and Bens Simmons were top performers, but it looks like Kyrie Irving was the change this team needed. Skip Bayless, who is known for his controversial take, claims that the Brooklyn Nets, along with Kyrie Irving, have a shot at winning the 2022-23 NBA Finals. Recently, In an episode on UNDISPUTED: Skip and Shannon, Skip Bayless called the Los Angeles Lakers a contender if they get their hands on Kyrie Irving via a rumoured Russell Westbrook trade.

Skip Bayless believes the Nets are serious challengers for a chip

Skip called the struggling Nets contenders after their win against Memphis. Although Memphis was short-handed, the Nets looked far better offensively with Irving back and Ben Simmons playing at an All-Star level. Skip tweeted, “​​No, there was no Ja nor Bane nor JJackson. But with Kyrie back, the Nets looked like, dare I say, a contender. Ben Simmons made 11 of 13 for 22/8/5. Watanabe, with 3 more threes in the 4th, continues to be a pleasant surprise. KD, Kyrie, Joe Harris, Seth, Royce, Jacque. Hmmm.”

The Brooklyn Nets are sitting at 9th in the East with 8 wins and 9 Losses. Kyrie Irving had missed the last 8 games for the Brooklyn Nets due to a suspension. His absence from the team in the last two seasons could be attributed to his lack of postseason success. With Irving back, It makes sense as to why Skip believes that The Nets are a contending team.
