07:58 AM ET 04.17 | His star on the rise, Kyrie Irving oozes talent with the basketball. Nationally, ESPN and others have proclaimed him "the future of NBA point guards." ... All this for someone who just turned 21 on March 23. It has, unsurprisingly, created a growing sense of entitlement with Irving. ... [On Monday,] he ignored the post-game ceremony during which players gave away shoes and shirts to the fans. ... There are times when rolls his eyes or shakes his head in disgust when a teammate makes a poor play. It's kid stuff, but he should know better. None of this is to say Irving is a bad guy or a lousy teammate. But he has some maturing to do, and the Cavs must demand that he do it.

As the leader of their teams, Jordan and Kobe shook their heads all the time when other players screwed up plays. Does that make them immature? Maybe Kyrie is just tired of losing after winning so much in high school and his time at Duke.

Only if the Cavs aren't an actual team by then.

Leave the kid alone. He's like 21 or something, not 33!

They just don't have enough to compete. They can't constantly rely on the draft. That's gonna have to stop. When there always relying on the draft then that means they suck year in and year out.

The Cavs can't be blamed on Kyrie.

He leads his team, how is he immature?
Really?
The mods must be out for the cavs or something this week.
This kid leads them, and they compete each and every night, you put another all star caliber player next to Irving(a small forward all star to be exact) and they should be back in the playoffs....
It will be interesting to see what they do in the off season.....
