NBA news: restart, Kyrie Iving, Disney World NBA bubble

Kyrie Irving isn’t slowing down in his fight against the NBA restart plan.

And while most of that, to this point, has seemingly involved Irving discussing whether now is the right time to return to basketball, a new report suggests the injured Brooklyn Nets point guard has gone one step further.

According to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, Irving “urged” his Nets teammates to skip the NBA bubble in a separate group chat, and even raised the possibility of the players starting their own league.

That claim was quickly refuted, with sources telling the Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks that Irving “never stated” that the Nets should begin their own league.

According to Rooks, Irving left the group chat shortly after Bondy’s report came out.
