Matt Sullivan made a number of damning revelations about Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets in a recent interview.
The 2019-20 NBA season was one of the most tumultuous in league history. The extended season featured a whole host of emotions from fans, players and front office staff alike.
It started off with the China controversy before we entered a world without Kobe Bryant, who died in a plane crash. The NBA and the rest of the world then began reeling under the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Given how so many upheavals took place through the course of that year, it was imperative for a noted writer to explore the season in greater depth. That’s exactly what Matt Sullivan is attempting through his book called ‘Can’t Knock The Hustle’.
“Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant had a secret Covid camp in Kobe Bryant’s old gym”: Matt Sullivan
Sullivan was on the Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz yesterday. He alleged that Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, among others, had disregarded the league’s directives forbidding players from holding their own basketball camps:
“There’s a lot of things that the Nets do that are in culture. There’s a reason they have such a wall around everything they do, kinda Kremlin-esque.”
“In the middle of Covid, they were working out half the team – or really, Kyrie, KD and their friends on the team – in Kobe’s old gym back in California. You wouldn’t have been allowed to do that in the middle of Covid.”
“They were running, like, a secret camp at Kobe’s old gym… James Harden ended up in that gym too while they formed this team on Election Day.” – @sullduggery dropped bombshells with us. Full interview:

“All these strict protocols and masks and gloves while you’re not touching the basketball. They were running like a secret camp the whole time, trying to get KD and Kyrie in shape.”
