Former NBA player Ryan Hollins shared his thoughts about the Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving and his leadership on a recent episode of Scoop B Radio Podcast. According to him, Irving is not a natural leader but he is trying to find his own way to be one.
Hollins also thinks that Kyrie learned some poor leadership from LeBron James when the two played together for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“But I think the way those two butted heads kind of left a bad imprint on Kyrie. It was bad business. It was some things that LeBron did. You know, Kyrie learned some poor leadership from LeBron and some of the stuff he did and I think Kyrie tried to come into his own in a different way. But very smart, very intelligent you know, really soft-spoken and trying to find out how to be a leader. I DON’T think Kyrie is a natural leader. You know some guys that are like — you see the 7 or 8 year old in the AAU game where he’s putting all the kids in the right spot, and he’s thinking of everybody…that’s NOT Kyrie.”
