The Kyrie Irving trade drama is getting intense! Now, Stephen A. Smith is claiming that Kyrie believes LeBron James is behind the media finding out that he wants to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
During an appearance on Sports Center, Smith said, “According to my sources, they believe LeBron James had everything to do with news getting out that Kyrie Irving wants to be traded, because Kyrie Irving and his representation and others met with the Cavaliers a couple weeks ago, and not a word got out until recently.”
The NBA analyst went on to say that Kyrie’s camp believe that LeBron “got word of it, and was put off by it, and leaked it.” But Smith also added that he wasn’t going to jump to any conclusions.
“I’m not going to accuse LeBron of such a thing, I don’t know that to be true at all, but I know that’s what Kyrie Irving believes,” said Smith. The mere fact that he has that question, says it’s time to move on.”
Roomies, these are some strong allegations. Do you think Bron Bron is that petty?
