Kyrie Irving took to social media on Wednesday to give fans a message as NBA free agency inches closer and the rumor mill gets going.
Just this week, Irving has been connected to the Los Angeles Lakers and a potential reunion with LeBron James (if in fact LeBron chooses not to retire) as well as other squads. However, Irving isn't interested in being placed at the center of the free agency rumors and asked fans to avoid continuing the conversations which do so.
In a different part of the IG Live session which the above video is pulled from, Irving said:
"I'm a free agent this summer, but I am in no rush to make a decision. And the speculation around my name from all these individuals that get on TV and have these personalities. All these people that have these platforms, and I'm talking about the TV personalities, the sports folk that try to mix sports with politics and lifestyle and s**t like that. When they speak on my name, and they're talking about potential teams that I'm going to, can ya'll please? Respectfully, like I'm asking you. Please stop paying attention to that. I am in no rush to make a decision."
