Who could blame him if he did tell Kyrie Irving not to let the door hit him on the way out? But that’s not what LeBron James is thinking — or at least not what he’s saying. What James is doing is enjoying his summer, according to the hash tag, and hoping others will do the same. It’s a summer that contains more than one NBA surprise, but the one that tops the list is Kyrie Irving’s request to be traded from the Cavaliers in order to be the face of a franchise somewhere not in Ohio. (James, if you haven’t heard, is the face of the Cavaliers.)
But James took time off from enjoying himself to respond to “news” reporting that he’s eager to see Kyrie hit the bricks. “Not facts,” he tweeted. James is laying low and recommends Slam mag, among others who are eager to read into the James/Irving relationship situation, get another source. Because he hasn’t said he wants Kyrie out. James, in fact, hasn’t said anything about it other than that this source is wrong. That is, unless you read James’s playing Meek Mill as a way of talking to Kyrie through social. But on the record, there’s no evidence — and James isn’t giving any — that he wants Irving gone. Boooo!!, James says, about reports that say otherwise.
