A recent photo was posted on Twitter of Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray at an NBA game between the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves.
It’s been over two months since the Arizona Cardinals saw their 2021 season come to an end in the first round of the playoffs. In these last two months, however, the Cardinals and starting quarterback Kyler Murray have made plenty of headlines.
For a team in Arizona that just made the playoffs for the first time since 2015, the last few weeks have just been bizarre. Much of the Cardinals news this offseason has been related to Murray and his apparent desire to get a new lucrative contract before next season.
Some Arizona fans have not been pleased with some of the recent actions by Murray and his agent during the last two months. On Monday, these fans voiced their frustrations about the Cardinals quarterback on their Twitter accounts.
Arizona Cardinals fans go nuts on Twitter over Kyler Murray photo
On Monday, the Dallas Mavericks hosted the Minnesota Timberwolves in an NBA regular-season matchup. Sitting courtside for the game happened to be Murray and some of his friends, so the Mavericks’ official Twitter account decided to post a photo of the Arizona quarterback enjoying the game.
Some Cardinals fans weren’t too thrilled with Murray, who grew up in the Dallas area, enjoying his life by watching some of the best basketball players in the world compete against each other. These fans flocked to the comments to let the Arizona signal-caller know how they felt.
In each of Murray’s three seasons, he’s led the Cardinals to more wins than what they achieved during the previous year, and with the way the NFC is shaping up, this trend has a good chance to continue in 2022.
It’s okay to have a problem with how Murray and his agent have acted during the last few weeks. But for fans to criticize the 24-year-old quarterback for going to see an NBA game in Dallas seems very unnecessary.
Murray has only been in the NFL for three years and he still has a very good chance to develop into one of the league’s top signal-callers. But based on some of these Twitter replies from Cardinals fans, they would be just fine if he blossomed into an elite quarterback in another team’s uniform.
