Kyrie Irving did a thing in his Brooklyn Nets debut against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. In fact, Irving did 50 things. That’s how many points the dude scored in an emotion-filled evening in New York City.

Irving was absolutely brilliant in front of the home crowd, hitting big shot after big shot.

In addition to dropping 50 points, Irving grabbed eight rebounds and dished out seven assists while committing zero turnovers.

Despite missing a potential game-winning shot in overtime, the NBA world was still in awe over Irving’s performance. Here’s the best reactions.
