Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets had seemingly been on pace for a divorce for a hot minute. Overall, the Nets felt like Kyrie was too much of a distraction. On the flip side, Irving felt a sense of disrespect from the franchise. He wanted better treatment and there were some in the front office who felt like that was not possible. Subsequently, Kyrie went and demanded a trade from the Nets. He eventually got what he wanted as the team sent him to none other than the Dallas Mavericks. Now, he gets to play with Luka Doncic.

Last night, Irving got to play his very first game with the Mavs. This game was against the Los Angeles Clippers and Luka was not in the lineup. However, Irving answered the call as he was able to lead his new squad to a 110-104 victory. Irving looked great in the game and overall, it seems like the Mavericks are on the right track. As it so happens, Irving was met with some celebrity support at the game, and he was quick to reciprocate.

Kyrie x Floyd

One of the celebrities in question was none other than Floyd Mayweather. As you can see above, Kyrie and Mayweather were able to dap each other up. Additionally, Irving gifted Mayweather his jersey from the game. Overall, it was a very nice gesture that Maywweather was most certainly appreciative of. Mayweather goes to a lot of Clippers games and has gotten a lot of jerseys. Although, getting Irving’s first ever jersey with the Mavericks was probably a very special feeling.

Irving now has a very special opportunity with the Dallas Mavericks. Of course, he has plenty of narratives that he needs to dispel. However, he seems eager to go out and win with this new team. He has some fantastic teammates and now, they are primed for an interesting playoff run. Now, though, KD going to the Suns makes this very interesting.
