If you thought Kyrie Irving had changed, seen the error of his arrogant, narcissistic, team-destroying ways, rededicated himself to the Brooklyn Nets and basketball in general, think again. The guy couldn't make it three months from his last team suspension before launching another potential nuke into the Nets' locker room and season. 

Indeed, Irving wants to be traded before next Thursday's deadline, per multiple reports and as confirmed by CBS Sports' Bill Reiter. So much for all all the good vibes in Brooklyn. One day Jacque Vaughn has turned it all around, the next Kevin Durant is hurt, the Nets lose seven of their next 11, and shortly after all that Irving demands out using the threat of his leaving as a free agent this summer to hopefully get his way. 


Word is Irving was looking to parlay his All-Star play and couple-month stint of good behavior into a long-term extension with the Nets, who, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic, indeed "offered Irving an extension with guarantee stipulations, according to league sources, an offer which was declined."
