As if the Cavs offseason couldn’t get worst…it just did.
ESPN broke the news that Cleveland Cavs Kyrie Irving requested a trade and is ready to move away from playing with LeBron James.
Sources tell ESPN that Irving asked Cavs owner Dan Gilbert last week to be traded to a team where he can be the focal point and “not in LeBron’s shadows.” Some also say with LeBron looking to leave Cleveland yet again didn’t sit well to Irving.
Many teams around the league are diving for their chances to recruit Irving including the New York Knicks, Minnesota TImberwolves, San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat.
Where will Irving go to? Only time can tell. One thing is for sure, LeBron can’t do it without him, so our chances to return to the Finals are not looking good.
