The Los Angeles Clippers were touted as one of the best teams in the Western Conference ahead of the 2023-24 season.
Moreover, the Clippers seemingly only got better after trading for James Harden from the Philadelphia 76ers.
However, following their excruciating 126-144 defeat against the Dallas Mavericks, the Clippers are now 3-5 to start the season.
Kyrie Irving may not be a member of the Los Angeles Clippers, but he still offered his support to the team via Joey Linn on Twitter.
“Right now they’re going through those ups and downs in the public forum where they are getting criticized for not winning games even tho they’re as great as anyone in the league,” Irving said.

Kyrie Irving is always known for his unfiltered responses to most things related to the NBA.
It’s a double-edged sword for the veteran NBA point guard.
On one hand, Irving’s unfiltered nature makes him a target for the media, but at the same time, he tries to help others in picking themselves up from tough times.
All things considered, Irving means well, and as he mentioned in the video, the Clippers will undoubtedly figure it out as the season progresses.
The key to their long-term improvement will be the play of James Harden.
So far, Harden has averaged just 14.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.7 assists per game for the Clippers.
But on a positive note, he has shot a remarkable 54.2% from the field and 50.0% from the three-point line.NEXT: Fans React To James Harden's Record With The Clippers
