Kyrie Irving always had a feeling he’d end up a member of the Nets.
The All-Star point guard made his four-year, $140 million deal official Sunday by putting pen to paper. Many speculated Irving would sign with Brooklyn, even after promising C’s fans he’d re-sign long-term in Boston.

Growing up in New Jersey, Irving probably he thought he’d be playing in East Rutherford, but it seems like he always envisioned playing for the then-home state Nets. At least that’s what we gathered from his latest Instagram post, in which he claimed signing with the Nets has “always been in the cards.”
