Kyrie Irving has finally addressed the NBA rumors that there is a growing tension within the Cleveland Cavaliers admitting that there are “misunderstandings” but said that it’s just part of being on a team.
The Cavaliers star point guard also stated that he is open to all other Cavaliers in talking about the issues going on with the team.
“There’s nothing to really address. 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.” Irving said via Cleveland.com.
“My communication is open with all of my teammates, just knowing what’s going on and how I feel about things.”
Irving is addressing a recent issue brought up by Stephen A. Smith of ESPN.com who claimed that there is tension in Cleveland and that the starting point guard is unhappy with his situation with the Cavaliers.
“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,” Irving added in the article.
“It’s all about winning and winning a championship for Cleveland.”
