Kyrie Irving had disrespectful act after Steve Nash practices
he Brooklyn Nets are said to be torn on whether they should sign Kyrie Irving to a long-term extension
and the star point guard’s relationship with head coach Steve Nash
may have something to do with that.
Stephen A. Smith said on ESPN’s “First Take” Monday that there were times last season
when Irving undermined Nash, whether he intended to or not.
Irving reportedly sometimes held his own practices with Nets teammates
after their regular practices ended. Smith viewed that as a sign of disrespect.
“Did you know that this brother Kyrie Irving last season would conduct his own practices?” Smith said
“So when Steve Nash had the team on the floor, and they practiced
they would finish and he’d go and get five guys and conduct his own practice
Do you have any idea how disrespectful that is to Steve Nash?
