Kyrie Irving is a magician on the court and with Kevin Durant out, Irving carried the show for the Nets on Tuesday night in a blowout win over the Jazz. The Nets are off to a 4-4 start in an up-and-down season. Their superstar point guard has been up all season so far. Kenny Anderson was another Nets guard who knew how to handle the ball and score.
On the latest episode of the “Fullcourt on Flatbush” podcast, Robin Lundberg and Kerry Kittles talk about the Nets current point guard and chat with Anderson himself.
