Last week, word got out that Kyrie Irving requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers because he wants to be the superstar of his own team and is no longer interested in living in LeBron James’ shadow.
According to a report by ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, LeBron was “blindsided” and “disappointed” when he learned of Kyrie’s request, and Kyrie’s camp reportedly believes LBJ is the one who leaked the trade talk to the media.
Now, Stephen A. Smith is claiming that his sources gave him word that LeBron would be tempted to beat Kyrie’s ass if they ever crossed paths. Speaking on his radio show Monday, Stephen A said, per the Washington Post,
“I’ve had sources in LeBron James’s 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.”
