The drama between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving is starting to become public after both superstars left the Cleveland Cavaliers in back to back offseasons. A new report explains the first instance of tension when James was upset about Irving missing two games in the Eastern Conference Finals of 2015.
Joe Vardon reported the following:
“This annoyed LeBron and LeBron’s people to no end. They were calling [Kyrie] soft and questioning his toughness, and LeBron was doing it in comments to the media.”
The mind games of LeBron has reportedly upset multiple teammates in the past, and Kyrie is clearly one of them given his desire to be traded away from a contender last summer.
