IFWT_Kyrie Irving

Things seemed to be falling apart for the Cleveland Cavaliers so the rumors began about trouble in paradise.  ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said Kyrie Irving was unhappy in Cleveland and would prefer to suit up for another franchise on First Take.  Following the Cavs 100-96 win over the Indiana Pacers on Monday, Irving responded to that report.

“There’s nothing to really address,” Irving said after putting up 22 points, six assists and an 11-for-11 mark from the free throw line against the Pacers. “Obviously there’s going to be some misunderstandings; it’s part of being on a team. For me, as a maturing young player in this league, I know what we have and the opportunity we have in order to be something special. My communication is open with all of my teammates, just knowing what’s going on and how I feel about things.

“For me, all that other stuff, what everyone is going to say, they’re going to pick one player, it’s going to change every single week. When they think that we’re down and out, they’re going to choose one player, so, for me it has no effect on my life or what’s going on. It’s all about winning and winning a championship for Cleveland.”
