Kyrie Irving's "Mood Swings" are making the Nets uncomfortable

Kyrie Irving made headlines recently by dropping 50 points against the Timberwolves, becoming the highest points scored in a Nets player debut. But now he's making headlines for not so good news.

According to ESPN's Jackie MacMullan, Irving's "mood swings" are an "unspoken concern" for Brooklyn and make the organization "queasy".

"When Irving lapses into these funks, he often shuts down, unwilling to communicate with the coaching staff, front office and sometimes, even his teammates. Nets team sources say one such episode occurred during Brooklyn's trip to China, leaving everyone scratching their heads as to what precipitated it. There's hope that Durant will be able to coax his friend into a better frame of mind."

Dave McMenamin of ESPN previously reported, Irving went "consecutive days" without speaking to his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates during the 2017 postseason. The 2016 NBA Finals star later requested a trade during the 2017 off season and wound up landing with the Boston Celtics, which did not last long.

Last season, Irving had some choice words his less experienced Celtics teammates following a loss, saying "the young guys don't know what it takes to be a championship level team." He subsequently retracted and apologized for his lack of leadership.

If these rumors are true or not, hopefully Kyrie keeps dominating in his first season with the Nets.
