Kyrie Irving Went Days Without Speaking To Teammates During Playoffs

Kyrie Irving Went Days Without Speaking To Teammates During Playoffs

Irving put up 25.2 points per game and shot 47 percent in the 2016-17 season, with the Cavaliers - a career high.

According to Patreon.com's Peter Vecsey (h/t HoopsHype), Irving prefers a deal to the Los Angeles Clippers. This was part of the team that represented the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals for the third consecutive year.

This would, however, end any chance the Clippers might have at LeBron James next summer if he was on their short list of superstars to go grab in free agency.

Irving listed San Antonio as a top destination, with the New York Knicks, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Miami Heat as other teams he'd go to. We can go on and on about potential questions (and answers) about it, but unless your name is Kyrie Irving, you don't truly know his feelings and what led to him basically demanding a trade away from the wine and gold. Possibly a multi-team deal could be arranged, though.




The Clippers have already made one big offseason move which saw them ship Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets and that opens up an interesting opportunity for Kyrie. There also has been some discussion that teams will want to consider how Kyrie Irving might be as a teammate, based on a reported situation during last year's playoffs.

He saw Kyrie Irving in the playoffs this year-in between the first round when they beat in and the second round when they played Toronto-go consecutive days without speaking to a teammate at practice.

Apparently, this happened between the first round of the playoffs, when the Cavaliers were facing the Indiana Pacers, and the second-round series against the Toronto Raptors.

"Phoenix, of course, hired James Jones this offseason", McMenamin said. As mentioned in the report, though, it's hard to gauge if this is related to some animosity between Irving and his teammates or just his own mental focus keeping him silent in preparation for the games. Irving is still under contract to the Cavs for a couple of guaranteed seasons with a player option for the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season.
