Paul George and Kyrie Irving want to stay put with their current teams

Two of the NBA youngest starts want to stay put with their current teams. The Indiana Pacers Paul George and Cleveland Cavaliers Kyrie Irving both have no desire to leave. Considering Indiana and Cleveland are small markets this is good news for the NBA.

The league needs stars in small market cities. Good for George and Irving wanting to stay put and not wanting to go to the bigger markets. That doesn’t happen often in today’s game.

George on staying in Indiana:

“I’m happy, man. I’m happy in Indiana. It’s overwhelming (to hear) that they would want a player like me to come play for their team. But right now I’m focused on Indiana. I’m happy to be in Indiana. Our future is bright in Indiana. I wouldn’t want to leave something great.”

Irving on staying in Cleveland:

“I’m a Cavalier right now,” Irving said. “I’m happy to be a Cavalier. I kind of had a sarcastic approach to it from what was said, because it was probably just a rumor started. I don’t think he knows anybody in my camp, and I don’t know who the guy is. But that type of stuff I don’t even pay attention to. Right now I’m a Cleveland Cavalier and I’m happy to be here.”
