Kyrie Irving went days without talking to teammates last postseason, per report

"He loves L.A. He's been working out a lot there this summer".

With Kyrie Irving still striving for a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the superstar point guard purportedly prefers the Los Angeles Clippers as his possible destinations. "But they also have Jerry West and he's been able to figure out before". In a fitting bit of irony, it appears that the NBA All-Star point guard wants to play for the Los Angeles Clippers. The original anecdote came from ESPN's Dave McMenamin on The BBall Breakdown Podcast as he spoke about Irving's former Cavs' teammate James Jones.

McMenamin added that players have their ups and downs in the regular season, but in the intensity and spotlight of the playoffs, Irving's actions may have been eye-opening to some, including Jones.

According to McMenamin on the BBall Breakdown podcast, Irving went consecutive days without speaking to his teammates during practice in between the in and Toronto series.


"Even at that level there were still things that made him sullen or reclusive from his teammates".

Previous reports say Irving was upset when the Cavaliers dangled his name in trade talks for Jimmy Butler and Paul George earlier this offseason, but it seemed his dissatisfaction with the team might have started further back during their playoff run.

"He reports, "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".

Kyire Irving does not have a no-trade clause, so he has limited control in determining his destination should he leaves the Cavaliers.
