"This time you feel very well."
"Just be it," he told Howard Beck of Boston. "It finally hit me, it hit me at the age of 26, eight years later."
Sometime during his final years in Cleveland, Irving found that his best piece, as he imagined it, was James, before he became the Door opened, otherwise he risked being stuck with a troop with fewer hopes for success, surrounded by teammates chilling to supplement the talents of another star player.
"Like, make it real," Irving said If I was still in Cleveland, it would be me. , , Everything happened that should happen. "
" Change can be hard sometimes, man, "he added, grinning at the exaggerated response to his trade demands." And deciding what's best for you will not be the same for everyone else. So you have to accept that at will. "
Irving has shown, however, that he recognizes how valuable his time was with James, not only in terms of success on the pitch, but also in showing him how to achieve it," he said Tuesday (via Yahoo Sports) that "it was the first time I've seen movies, prepare for the playoffs, learn how to go against them."
