Kyrie Irving had disrespectful act after Steve Nash practices

The 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?
