Kyrie Irving’s hiatus undid the Nets season. To keep the star guard from hurting them again down the road, he needs both an attitude adjustment to co-exist with Steve Nash and likely a long sitdown with Kevin Durant to get him there.

It’s easy to dismiss that as a hot take coming from somebody outside HSS Training Center. But when it’s coming from Amar’e Stoudemire – who spent the past two years as a Nets player development assistant – one has to take note.

“It definitely hurt us because we didn’t have the consistency with Kyrie enough to build the chemistry for the group of the team, right?” Stoudemire said Thursday on ESPN. “Plays only the away games depending on which city it is. Can’t play in New York. So therefore we have different lineups and different matchups depending on the game scheduling.

“And so it made it difficult for us as coaches to figure out, ‘Well, who’s going to play in spite of Kyrie?’ The chemistry is not quite there [how] we would like it to be, so [it was] difficult for us to manage that.”

Cubs’ Andrelton Simmons throws 45-mph strike against Reds

When baseball games go horribly wrong, fans can get treated to one of the most hilarious sights in sports: position players pitching.

That’s what happened on Thursday in Cincinnati. With the Cubs getting blown out by the Reds – who would go on to win 20-5 – Chicago shortstop Andrelton Simmons took to the mound in the eighth inning. And he managed to produce at least one bright spot.

Simmons, who has been clocked throwing 94 miles per hour in a game on a throw from shortstop, threw a pitch that was less than half that speed. His 44.9 mph pitch to Kyle Farmer was the slowest pitch in major league baseball history to generate a swinging strike, per Codify Baseball.

Simmons also had one pitch as slow as 39 mph, while also topping out on another at 79 mph.

Not all went well for Simmons, though, who gave up five runs on five hits and issued one walk in his inning of work. The loss dropped the lowly Cubs to fourth place in the NL Central and just four games ahead of the last-place Reds, who split the four-game series with Chicago.
