Kyrie Irving expressed his expectations for the new season in Dallas.
Karii Irving re-signed with the Dallas Mavericks on a three-year, 온라인카지노 $126 million contract in the summer free agent market last July.
Irving was traded from Brooklyn to Dallas during last season. Due to his unpredictable personality, there were even predictions at the time of the transfer that he could be transferred to another team in the summer transfer market. Dallas, which passed over Spencer Dinwiddie and Dorian Finney-Smith to recruit Irving, was desperate for him to remain.
In the end, Irving decided to wear the Dallas uniform again. Next season, Irving will work with Luka Doncic on the court as well. It’s his first time spending a full season together.
Irving expressed positive expectations for the new season with Dallas in an interview released through ESPN on the 30th (Korean time).
Irving said, “I’m happy to stay in Dallas.” He said, “It wasn’t a difficult decision at all. Dallas was top on my list. Of course, I looked into other places as well. Due to the salary cap situation, they couldn’t recruit me.” I looked at teams with existing players, teams with players who seemed like a good fit for me, etc. But I didn’t have much room to make other choices. And I’m now 31 years old. Now, I had to think about different merits. I don’t think I have settled down in Dallas yet. “But I’m glad to get a warm welcome back here.”
He expressed confidence in working with Luka Doncic.
“I think we both played too passively,” Irving said, reflecting on the second half of last season with Doncic. “I think Doncic and I are both killers on the court. Everybody knows that. We want to win. . Doncic and I have to maintain that mentality consistently and lead the team with players who have experience of winning and young players who still have a lot to learn. Last season went by really quickly, and there was a lot of pressure to win right away. ‘Why can’t Dallas win when they have Doncic and Irving?’ “We were in a position where we had to answer the same questions. But honestly, if I think about it now, we weren’t fully prepared at the time.”
Health was chosen as the key to the new season.
Irving said, “I think in the NBA, a healthy body without injuries is actually close to everything,” and “Both Doncic and I spent last season not at 100%, and we tried to do our best somehow, mentally or physically. That part is up to us. “This is something I wanted to praise,” he said.
