Kyrie Irving

It appears that the Brooklyn Nets aren’t feeling the mood swings of superstar point guard Kyrie Irving.

According to ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan, Irving has funks where he shuts down communication with everyone, even his teammates.

“When Irving lapses into these funks, he often shuts down, unwilling to communicate with the coaching staff, front office and sometimes, even his teammates.” the article said.

The article goes on to cite Nets’ forward Kevin Durant, a close friend of Irving’s, who spoke about his personality and moods.

“I look at Kyrie as somebody who is an artist,” Durant said of Irving. “You have to leave him alone. You know what he’ll bring to the table every night because he cares so much about the game.

“Now, it might not be how other people want him to care about it. He has his way of doing things. I respect who he is and what he does. He has all the intangibles you want in a teammate and a great player. So, how he gets to the point to be ready for 7:30 every night, I’m supporting him 100 percent.”
