Interesting reason for why Kyrie wanted a trade from Cleveland over the summer
Apparently he was being shopped over the summer, and he thinks LeBron had a hand in it.

The Cavs were going to get Paul George and Eric Bledsoe in a three team deal with Irving ending up in Indiana or Phoenix.

quote:

Cleveland apparently had a deal in place with Indiana and Phoenix that would have netted them Eric Bledsoe (a close friend of LeBron’s) and Paul George in exchange for Irving and other pieces. The deal obviously never went through and all talks died when GM David Griffin left the team, but Irving got the impression that LeBron was behind it


quote:

Irving, who, sources close to him say, became convinced that LeBron’s camp, which also represents Bledsoe, orchestrated the trade talks.

Each NBA team's star is the real GM of the organization. This is nothing unique. Look at Kobe, he royally fricked up the Lakers with personnel moves.

Don’t blame Cavs GM for trying to improve the team, but in same breath you can’t blame Kyrie for taking matters into his own hands.

re: Interesting reason for why Kyrie wanted a trade from Cleveland over the summer
I don't blame either game, and I can see both sides of the trade (from Cleveland's standpoint). But I can certainly see why Kyrie wouldn't want to waste 3 years of his career in Indiana or Phoenix.

We all knew his reason for leaving was because of LeBron.

This just adds to that understanding.

“Ky," Lue said, "I want you to play a little faster."
"Why?" Irving asked.
"Because if we play faster, we get shots off easier."
"I don't need to play faster to get my shot off," Irving replied. "I can do that anytime."
"I'm not talking about your shot. I'm talking about RJ and JR," Lue said, citing teammates Richard Jefferson and Smith.
"Well, that's No. 23's job," Irving replied, referring to James.
According to members of the Cavs organization who witnessed the exchange, Lue ended the conversation by walking away, shaking his head.

Kyrie was asking for a trade following the 2016 championship. And how about posting a link to the full article
