Michael Wilbon is done with the nonsense emanating from the Brooklyn Nets. On Sunday, he exploded on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, ripping Durant for his comments on Sunday and Irving for his stance on the COVID-19 vaccine.

During a postgame press conference, Durant claimed New York City mayor Eric Adams is only preventing Irving from playing because he wants attention.

Wilbon wasn't having it. He absolutely went off. Check it out below.

Wilbon is correct here, of course. First off, Adams doesn't need attention, he's the mayor of New York City. Dude is on camera or in the news every day.

Durant knows exactly why Irving is being held out from playing in New York. There is one person to blame for Kyrie Irving's situation: Kyrie Irving. He could play tomorrow if he got vaccinated. His choices are the reason he is in the situation he's in.

Angry Wilbon remains excellent TV.
