Kyrie Irving: Cavaliers ‘Definitely’ Win More Championships Without Trade Demand

Read Time:2 Minute, 14 Second


Nets point guard Kyrie Irving recently opened up about requesting a trade from the Cavaliers in 2017, sharing that his own immaturity prevented the trio of himself, LeBron James and Kevin Love from claiming any additional titles.

Appearing on the I AM ATHLETE podcast with Brandon Marshall, LeSean McCoy and Adam “Pacman” Jones, Irving dismissed the idea that he asked out of Cleveland in order to step out from James’s shadow. Instead, the All-Star point guard explained that he was dealing with own personal issues at the time that led him to isolate himself from the rest of his Cavaliers teammates.

“If I was in the same maturity level and understanding of who I am [now], and I look back, we definitely, definitely would’ve won more championships,” Irving said. “Because there would’ve been a better man-to-man understanding [with LeBron] about what I’m going through. I didn’t know how to share my emotions. I didn’t know how to do that. So instead of sharing, I isolated myself.”
