Kyrie Irving talks not playing much alongside Kevin Durant, James Harden

Brooklyn Nets star guard Kyrie Irving has acknowledged that the Nets' star trio is thinking of what could happen if they get to play together. The Nets' star trio -- consisting of Irving, Kevin Durant and James Harden -- has appeared in only 16 games over the last two years and they have a 13-3 record.

"To be honest with you, I hate that I even have to answer that question," Irving said, according to ESPN. "We think about it daily. It's not something that is shortsighted for us. We think about the long term and how well we jell together as a trio.

And when we say as a trio we're not excluding anybody else on the team, but we just know that the energy runs through us, and when we're flowing out there and we're playing -- I think James said it last year -- there's not a lot of teams that could be out on the floor with us that can match up very well with us.

"That's just the confidence we have in one another when all three of us are healthy and we're playing at a high level. And we've only played a few games where, I don't know if it's more than 10 or anything like that -- but it's definitely on our wish list, man.

And we just have to stay patient and just not lose that confidence that all the pieces will come together at the right time."

Irving hasn't played much with Harden and Durant

Irving missed the first two months of the season because the Nets sent him home because of his vaccine stance.

Durant is set to be out for at least a few more weeks due to an injury. Harden is dealing with a right hand strain but he is playing through the injury. The Nets have the scariest trio in the NBA but they haven't played much. If Irving continues his vaccine stance, the trio likely won't get to play much together.
