Kyrie Irving Responds To ESPN ‘Mood Swings’ Report


The other day, ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan published an article that detailed Kyrie Irving’s early days with the Nets, while basically naming him as a source of concern for the franchise this season.

According to MacMullan, Kyire’s ‘mood swings’ have made Nets officials ‘queasy.’ Irving reportedly refused to participate with the Nets’ performance team, because he didn’t want them to collect his biometric data. Then, when the team was in China, Irving had another ‘episode’ which the Nets still are unsure of what caused it.


“When Irving lapses into these funks, he often shuts down, unwilling to communicate with the coaching staff, front office and, sometimes, even his teammates. Nets team sources say one such episode occurred during Brooklyn’s trip to China, leaving everyone scratching their heads as to what precipitated it.”


While the Nets have already denied the report, Kyrie himself also shot down the rumors of him being a difficult player to deal with.

Per Yahoo Sports:


“Human beings have mood swings. It’s OK to be human. I don’t have to be perfect for anyone here, nor do I have to be perfect for the public. So I’m not here to dispel any perception. I’m just here to be myself.”
