Kyrie Irving wants out of Cleveland--and, more importantly, LeBron James' shadow. LeBron and his camp allegedly leaked the news to reporters. Point guard Derrick Rose just signed a 1-year deal with the Cavs. And now, a report from Stephen A. Smith may indicate that the LeBron-Kyrie relationship is broken beyond repair.
On Monday on his ESPN Radio show, Stephen A. revealed just how upset LeBron really is. "I’ve had sources in LeBron James’ camp literally tell me, and I’m quoting…if Kyrie Irving was in front of LeBron James right now, LeBron James would be tempted, quote, to beat his ass, end quote," he said.
Kyrie apparently would accept a trade to San Antonio, New York, Minnesota, or Miami. ESPN's Zach Lowe reported that the Cavs view moving Kyrie as almost inevitable.
