John Wall on Kyrie Irving: ‘I’d stay put’

John Wall wants nothing more than to keep playing with the team that drafted him, so to hear that Kyrie Irving requested a trade from the team that picked him up on draft day baffled the former Kentucky star.

That was crazy to me. I didn’t know that was happening at all. Well, too bad, Wall said (via CSN Mid-Atlantic). It’s kinda tough. If I had been to three straight [NBA] Finals, I’d want to stay but you never know what type of relationship or what type of details they have going on the backside. Nobody knows what’s going on behind closed doors.

These games will be our 25th and 26th in Mexico, the most played in any country outside of the United States and Canada, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said. They will also mark the 25th anniversary of our first game in Mexico City, a milestone in our relationship with our Mexican fans and a further indication of our desire to strengthen our ties to Mexico and Latin America.

The games likely will draw huge crowds, especially since fans will want a glimpse of the Nets’ revamped team with Jeremy Lin, DeMarre Carroll and D’Angelo Russell in action.

Fans will also get to see Westbrook playing alongside Paul George and watch Hassan Whiteside work with Kelly Olynyk in the Heat’s first game in Mexico.

We are thrilled to be able to participate in the NBA Mexico City games, Heat president Pat Riley said. The game of basketball is truly a global game and we are proud to be a part of its return to Mexico City. We look forward to our first-ever regular-season game there and bringing the HEAT experience to our fans in Mexico.

The games will be televised by ESPN in the U.S. and Televisa in Mexico. Fans also can watch the games via the NBA app.
