The Brooklyn Nets are currently facing challenges with Kevin Durant's injury, but they seem to be performing better without him compared to last season.

Kyrie Irving, who is now at the center of the team's approach without Durant, gave himself credit for the team's performance and appeared to take a subtle shot at former teammate James Harden.

Irving stated, "Well I'm consistently in the lineup, that helps. We also don't have anyone who is halfway in in the locker room."

This statement is believed to be directed at Harden, who played for the Nets last season but later got traded to the Philadelphia 76ers.

However, it is worth noting that Irving himself has had controversies in the past, such as not getting vaccinated for COVID-19 and missing games as a result, and almost leaving the team during the off-season.

The focus should now be on Irving's performance as he will have to step up and lead the team during Durant's absence.
