Kyrie Irving, who plays in the Nets, will possibly put his successful partnership with Nike in 2023 ...

Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets'' star, is expected to lose his lucrative sponsorship with Nike following the NBA season''s 2022/2023 finals.

Irving was already having a turbulent season as he missed most games of the regular season before being permitted to enter the court again.

So far, he was forced to play the Nets in home games without having to get vaccinated against COVID-19. He played 29 games this season due to COVID-19 vaccine limitations.

In the four games of the NBA Playoffs opening round, the Nets were defeated by the Boston Celtics.

To help the Irvings up and down season, he will not extend his sponsorship deal with Nike beyond the expiration of their current contract with him, which will expire in 2023.

Here''s all you need to know about this item.

ESPN''s Adrian Wojnarowski revealed on Friday that Nike is doubtful to resume their contract with professional basketball star Kyrie Irving. The contract will expire next year in 2023.

ESPN reached out to Nike to see what the organization is proposing. The company responded however tactfully by neither denied nor agreeing with the gossip.

We no longer comment on contracts or rumors or speculation, according to a Nike spokesperson.

Kyrie is still a Nike athlete, according to reports.

Kyrie Irving signed up for the sportswear industry back in 2014. His basketball shoes erupted to be one of the most popular brands.

In July 2021, a talented but mercurial player criticized the design of the Kyrie 8 sneakers. He claimed that he did not participate in either designing or marketing the product.

Consequently, he decided to retract his words shortly after Nike addressed their version of the riot act. However, the damage was done, and his actions had a limited effect.

This fall, a new shoe from the Irvings line is expected to be his last in partnership with Nike. According to reports, his offer was worth $11 million.

Kyrie Irving earned $34.9 million in the 2021/22 season, bringing the salary gradually to $36.5 million in the 2022/23 campaign.

Irving signed a four-year contract with the Nets in 2019 and is estimated to be worth $136.4 million. It will begin with the summer 2023.
