Kyrie Irving may be an NBA champion and one of the best point guards in the NBA, but plenty of basketball pundits have criticized him for being a bad teammate and a locker room cancer, especially over these past few years.

Irving has been on four teams throughout his NBA career, and his past tenure with the Brooklyn Nets has only worsen the narrative surrounding him. In his time with the Nets, Irving had a number of controversial incidences and was even blamed for the team’s stunning collapse.

Right now, Irving is playing for the Dallas Mavericks. Though the negative reputation has not left him just yet, Mavericks forward Maxi Kleber has nothing but positive things to say about Irving as a teammate.


“He’s very experienced, very calm, you know, he knows how to talk to people, where to set up people, sees the strength in players, and knows what he expects them to do,” Kleber said. 

“He has always positive spirits, uplifting words, and all that. I’m very appreciative to be able to play with him. I learn a lot from just like his body language, the way he interacts with his teammates, and just a great character guy.”
