NBA News: Kyrie Irving reveals his regrets about last season
“Do you have any regrets when you look back on the last year — about anything?
Irving: I’d be lying to you as a human being [if I said I didn’t]. I think we all think about times when we could have made better decisions, times when we wish we could have done things differently and feel the same way sometimes throughout my life.. …Legally I just want to play the long game and not put too much pressure on myself or the people here.
This is something I do every day. We say it like a cliché sometimes, but nah, we’re just letting go of the playing handle [itself] – Enjoy the season and then, We’ll come back and take a look at some of that reflection time and talk about these things in a deeper detail, but as of now that can’t be my focus.”

“We’ll see them again,” Irving continued. “We’re going to have to. They’re going to be where they are but these guys out there at Boston Bros, I have to see them grow up. So seeing them do what they did last year, in the finals, putting them away, I’m glad they had to go through us.”
Irving picked his player option for the season and is now playing on a new contract, so he’d better focus on basketball and basketball alone. The Nets are still the team to beat on paper, but paper doesn’t win championships.
