Matt Sullivan continued his barrage of ratting out the Brooklyn Nets as he reveals why Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant broke Covid protocols
Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are similar in a lot of ways. Both players have unique games, many would consider an art form. Both players find it annoying to talk to media personnel. And according to recent revelations, both men are firm believers in the phrase ‘rules are meant to be broken’.
Matt Sullivan has been on a tear recently. After spending some time being extremely close with the Nets, he has been dropping bombs about the franchise. But, his most recent little anecdote about the team isn’t exactly ‘haha funny’. No, this one was a bit more dangerous and could get Durant and Irving in some serious trouble.
Let’s get into it.
“They were running like a secret camp”: Matt Sullivan reveals Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving broke some serious rules ahead of this season
And yup, they were Covid related rules.
Before this season started, the NBA had given teams certain major rules about preseason camps. These were made after the league paid strict attention to the safest guidelines with regard to the pandemic. But, it seems that the Nets had other ideas. And they would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for Matt Sullivan.
Here is what he said on the matter.
“There’s a lot of things that the Nets do in that culture. There’s a reason why they have this Kremlin-esque wall around everything they do. During the middle of Covid, they were working out half the team. Well really, Kyrie, KD, and their friends on the team at Kobe’s old gym in California. You weren’t allowed to do that during Covid. You had all these strict protocols, one coach, masks. But they were running, like, a secret camp all the time trying to get KD and Kyrie in shape…”

It is unclear whether or not the organization has allowed the insider to say this, or even if the NBA will look to fine them for it.
Still though, given the pandemic, this was extremely dangerous, and we sincerely hope the organization can be more responsible in the future.
