A year after James Harden landed, the Nets played just 16 games with their accumulated Big 3, including Kevin Durant and Kayri Irving.

They have won 13 of those competitions, including an impressive performance by the Eastern Conference leader in Chicago on Wednesday night.

The question remains: How can the Nets trio maximize the number of games they can play together, while the unvaccinated Irving has the right to play home games and choose road games according to local vaccination rules? it’s not?

Asked if he believed the victory over the Bulls then showed the Nets that they were a “titled team”, although Irving did not participate much in the first half, he and his teammates “felt that way from day one.” they did. ” of the season.

“Even when we started the training session, there were guys on our team who had a lot of experience and then young guys who were very hungry to get on the field,” Irving said. “Now that I’ve been on the road with the guys for a few days, I can feel good where we are.

“I really still play. I won’t miss a thing of it. It’s just in mid-season form and I’m just like myself, my friend, I missed the session, I missed the precious time to get my feet wet. But when everything happened quickly, my teammates made it easy for the whole organization to just go there and play. … I hope we get used to it and spend more time playing together. “

ESPN correspondent Adrian Wojnarovsky reported on Wednesday that the Nets will eventually bring Irving back as a “full-time player” this season, possibly “genuinely optimistic” that he could receive “nominal penalties” for violating existing New York City rules. have

According to The Post, the NBA has stressed that all teams must adhere to any local mandates before the season.

Woynarovsky recalled his original quote on Twitter on Thursday, writing: “To know exactly the team’s hypothetical ability to pay a fine to an unvaccinated player to play in a market banned by local rules,” the NBA sent a note to everyone . In September, teams “must follow local laws and players who do not follow them will not be able to play.”

The Nets, meanwhile, were without Durant in Thursday night’s game against the Thunder. They announced that he and Patti Mills would be vacationing for a game at the Barclays Center. Durant played 30 minutes on Wednesday and won the Bulls with 26 points, Harden with 33 points and Irving with nine points in 25 minutes.

After Wednesday’s game, Irving was asked how he felt about his home games with his teammates since he returned from a trip last month.

“It’s hard to get away from the team at any time since it all started. It’s hard, so we still have changes and there’s a reality we have to face and we’re doing what we can, I’m doing what I can and I’m happy that we were able to do that as a whole organization, ”he said. “People from top to bottom are nothing but supporting each other. The guys are in and out all year round, so it’s a fact that we have to face together and see where we’re going at the end of the season.”
