Jalen Rose voted Kyrie Irving for All-NBA 3rd Team

·3 min read

Kyrie Irving, who was basically a part-time player for the Nets this season, received a lone vote for the All-NBA Third Team. The man, nay culprit, who did the deed owned up to it – former NBA star Jalen Rose. “I need to fall on the sword. Because I’m the lone person who voted Kyrie Irving 3rd Team All-NBA,” Rose admitted to voting for the Nets guard. “I’m the lone person to do that. I get mesmerized by his talent, but it was a mistake to put him 3rd team. And I’m glad it didn’t cost Trae Young his spot cause he deserved it more.”

Jalen Rose voting Kyrie Irving third-team All-NBA, when Irving played just 29 games, is ridiculous. He should never be allowed to vote again. That is unforgivable. – 12:59 AM

I feel like it was yesterday when I was watching Jonathan Kuminga go off at the Kyrie Invitational at Barclays Center. Now he’s hitting big shots in the playoffs on a championship contender. – 11:28 PM

Below is the voting for All-NBA teams, including players who received votes but didn’t make teams. Nets’ Kevin Durant made second team All-NBA. Kyrie Irving received one third-team vote: pic.twitter.com/3TpmV5TUFB8:32 PM

More on this storyline

Brian Lewis: Ben Simmons is “progressing well” in his rehab from May 5 back surgery according to a source close to the player. The #Nets star is “is in great spirits” and should be ready in time for training camp. #NBA -via Twitter @NYPost_Lewis / May 25, 2022

This is why, as I’ve already written, the Nets’ championship hopes hinge on an amicable solution with Kyrie Irving, whose personal decision not to get vaccinated and unpredictable injury history have left the Nets hesitant, and now, according to a source familiar with the Nets’ thought process, outright unwilling to give him a long-term extension. -via New York Daily News / May 25, 2022

That’s a first-round exit at best – if Durant stays to see it, and according to multiple sources, Kevin Durant and the Nets front office have not spoken since they were swept out of the first round. -via New York Daily News / May 25, 2022
