Dallas lost vs Charlotte, Kyrie Irving scoffed at what he called ‘the pretty words that sports loves to put in, like hope and concern,'” stating that an adjustment period was expected after a major midseason trade.
«We’re a very poised group on days where I feel like we put in the best effort, and then on days where kind of the energy falters or we don’t start off well or the offense isn’t going or people aren’t making shots, there could be some emotional pulling in other directions that can dictate the outcome of games».
«And we’re still feeling each other out in a way of getting used to each other’s efforts and attitudes and temperament. And that’s a real thing. That’s a human thing. That’s a human element. Whether people believe it in basketball or not, there’s a very fine line between winning basketball games and everyone being on the same page and losing basketball games and things splintering and pointing fingers».
«So? So what? Just the way I feel about it. I’ve been in New York City, so I know what that’s like. You obviously want to play well, but it’s only five people on the court that can play for the Dallas Mavericks. If the fans want to change places, then hey, be my guest. Got years of work ahead to be great enough to be on this level. But our focus isn’t necessarily on the boos. It should be on our performance and just being there for each other».
Mavericks’ Kyrie Irving isn’t worried about the team being booed against the Hornets:
