Ahead of his first game against his former team, Dallas Mavericks guard Kyrie Irving had no regrets about how he left the Brooklyn Nets.
“I was never on bad terms with the organization,’’ Irving said. “I just think there was a lot of chaos and noise, as usual, from the media. I’m not going to blame you guys or anything, but nobody really knew what was going on behind the scenes. I’m sure that people have their sources they go to [about] what was going on and what really happened.”
Irving added that he's happy to with the way things played out. He re-emphasized that he had no problem with the Nets as a team, but that's he happy to be with the Mavericks.
“But for me, it was the best decision of my career to ask for a trade,’’ Irving said. “I knew I needed peace of mind.”
