Kyrie Irving: It’s Been Nothing But Great With Mavericks, Outside Of Losses

The Dallas Mavericks have dropped four out of their past five games after losing 116-108 to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Mavericks are one game out of 10th behind the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“I think that now, again, just where we are in the season, and where other teams are positioned already, it kind of looks like a bit of a clusterf—, to be honest with you,” Kyrie Irving said. “Because we’re 37-40, and we’re trying to fight to get into the play-in game. It’s not the expectations I don’t think any of us had in that locker room.”

Irving is still adjusting to his new situation with the Mavericks.

“I didn’t expect to ask for a trade at that point in the season,” he said. “So I wanted to finish out with Brooklyn, finish out with the season that we had going, and I didn’t get a chance to do that. So some of the goals I had previously this season had to be shifted, and I had to be more than willing, which I am, to be flexible and adaptable and live with the results, whether we make the playoffs or not.

“I just have to be at peace with where I am and which I am, and trust of the guys that I’m going to be in that war room with every single day. So, I’m appreciative of them giving me the opportunity. It’s been nothing but great here. And I’ve been at peace.”

Irving added: “So it’s been good — outside of the losses, of course. We’d like to win every game.”

Irving will be a free agent this offseason.
