Report: Kyrie Went Days Without Talking to Teammates During Playoffs

It's unclear what will happen with Kyrie Irving this NBA offseason, but it's becoming more and more clear that his rift with the Cavaliers is real.

Irving went "consecutive days without speaking to teammates at practice" between the first and second round of the NBA playoffs last year, teammate James Jones told ESPN's Dave McMenamin, as reported on The BBall Breakdown Podcast.

The Cavaliers swept the Pacers and Raptors 4-0 in the first two rounds of last year's postsesaon.

Irving, who has spent his entire career in Cleveland after the Cavs made him the No. 1 overall pick in 2011, reportedly requested a trade in July

The 25-year-old six-year NBA veteran averaged a career-best 25.2 points per game last year in the regular season to go along with 5.8 assists and 3.2 rebounds in 35.1 minutes. He averaged 25.9 points, 5.3 assists and 36.3 minutes in 18 playoffs games.
