When asked about his time with Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James, Boston Celtics Guard Kyrie Irving has been consistent in his answers: He appreciates what he learned there, and he is ready to continue.
Following reports, LeBron James explicitly expressed the cavalry not to trade Irving to Boston, but questions about Irving’s time in Cleveland were rediscovered.
Here is NBC Sports Boston reporter Abby Chin who asks Irving before shooting in Charlotte if he had any comments on the new report.
“Someone, I think I’m ready to comment on something in Cleveland or something that would be disrespectful, says Irving. “I feel like the one I’m in my career where I want to be, it seems like not a distant memory, but it’s just something I appreciate the lessons I’ve learned, I’m just ready to go further. “
Both the question and Irving’s answer are quite fair. When James comments on Irving, or Cavalier’s success over the years, it’s newsworthy. It’s fair that Irving gets a chance to react, and it’s just as fair for Irving to rightfully reject it the opportunity. He has every right to try to put everything behind him.
Irving often broke when the subject James and Cavaliers was broached. He seems to be in a better place with everything now – uninterested to talk about his views on the question but undisturbed of the discussion.
