But while many fans and people in the media watched comments like Irving's maturing remember what Cavs might have been, some in the NBA had a big problem with the comments. The main critic is Charles Barclay who says Irving has thrown his teammates under the bus. Ernie Johnson asked Barclay if the comments were at least partly grown.
