After suffering another loss at the hands of the New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers G Kyrie Irving took the time to address that reports that he had privately told others that he wanted out of Cleveland.  

“I’m in Cleveland, I enjoy myself....I enjoy going out there and competing at the highest level for the Cleveland Cavaliers. And that’s what it’s about. It’s not about me and it’s not about this controversy surrounding do I privately want to come out when my contract is up...I mean, I’m still in my rookie contract and I’m happy to be here and I’m pretty sure that I’m going to be here for a long time. I’m not saying anything to foretell the future but I’m pretty sure the relationship I have with [owner] Dan Gilbert and management extends off the court and I enjoy being here.”

“Like I said, it’s still too early to say,” Irving said. “I’m still trying to get through this season. But everybody is trying to antagonize this team and put it on me to [say I] privately he wants out....I’m here for my teammates. I’m here for Coach [Mike] Brown and the coaching staff and I’m going to play my heart out every single night for the Cleveland Cavaliers.”
