Stephen A. Smith weighs in on Kyrie Irving trade

Stephen A. Smith has been amongst the most vocal critics of Kyrie Irving. The NBA analyst took to his podcast, K[NO]W MERCY, to weigh in on the trade that sent Irving from the Brooklyn Nets to the Dallas Mavericks, stating:

"Every single d**n thing I said about Kyrie Irving, I meant it. He's a superstar basketball player. He's a sensational talent. He is box office. He is worth $50 million a year. Easy! I would just pay him one year at a time."

He added:

"I ain't giving that brother no long-term deal 'cause I can't trust him. I'm not doing that, and it ain't because he's some bad guy. Kyrie is not a malicious person. He doesn't mean to hurt and to harm people. He just believes he's more knowledgable than everybody else."

Irving played just 143 games during his nearly four-year tenure in Brooklyn as he missed time due to injuries, his decision not to take the COVID-19 vaccine, and a suspension for sharing a controversial documentary. Irving and co-star Kevin Durant shared the floor for just 74 games.
