Concerns Regarding Kyrie Irving’s Attitude Continues to be a Hot Topic

At 6-8, the Brooklyn Nets have gotten off to a slow start this season.

Billed to take a significant step forward this season with the additions of Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan, among others, the Nets have struggled to find their footing in the early going. Of course, when a team like the Nets struggles, questions and rumours begin to circulate.

Prior to the start of the season, there were reports that the Nets brass was concerned with Irving who has elicited mood swings during their Asian trip. Stephen A. Smith of ESPN re-ignited those rumours on Thursday when he suggested that he has been hearing negative things about Irving’s attitude since joining the Nets.

“I am not hearing good things about Kyrie in Brooklyn,” said Smith. “People are putting stuff out there. I don’t think it’s fair, I don’t know how accurate it is. If Kyrie’s listening, I’m telling you there is stuff circulating out there about him from an attitude perspective. I don’t think it’s right.”

Nets center Jarrett Allen refuted Smith’s statements shortly after in a talk with Bleacher Report.

“He acts like a normal teammate,” Allen assured. “People say that he has mood swings, but that’s a complete lie. He wants to see us succeed and do well if anything.”

Again, if Irving is in fact dealing with mood swings, the Nets should do everything in their power to provide their superstar point guard with the mental health he needs. This is not a story that should be spun in a way that would shed a negative light on Irving.

Irving has missed the past few games as he deals with a shoulder injury.
