LeBron Was Reportedly ‘Blindsided & Disappointed’ By Kyrie’s Trade Request

Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics - Game Five

You just never know what’s going on behind the scenes with athletes.

While it may looked like a formidable duo and friendship on the court, the relationship between Kyrie Irving and LeBron James must have quickly deteriorated as reports surfaced on Friday that Kyrie had requested to be traded as early as last week.

It was a shocking request that reportedly had LeBron James “blindsided and disappointed,” per Windhorst’s sources. That was just the tip of the iceberg as the report shockingly revealed that Kyrie “no longer wants to play alongside James.”

Windhorst went on to indicate how “other members of the team have learned of Irving’s intentions in recent days as well.”

Irving has been with the Cavaliers since they made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 draft.
