It is a fact that Kyrie Irving never approved the return of LeBron James to Cleveland.

The point guard was happy being the star of the Cavaliers and the arrival of the king took away the leading role.

During these three years the signs have shown his disagreement with LeBron and neither accepted each-others advice.

However, none of that is the true cause of his desire to leave the Cavaliers and asked owner Dan Gilbert to trade him (as he is not yet a free agent).

It turns out that the reason for Irving’s anger is that he learned of a supposed barter in which he was involved and thought that LeBron was behind it, since he knows that nothing in Cleveland moves without the consent of King James.

Irving thought James wanted him out of the Cavs after hearing about this exchange that would have sent him to the Phoenix Suns.

According to prestigious Fox Sports analyst Chris Broussard the Suns wanted Irving and offered for him to Eric Bledsoe and the No. 4 pick in the draft, a pick the Cavs had given to the Pacers by Paul George.

Irving thought that these negotiations were at least approved by LeBron and according to Broussard that was gout that filled the glass.

“Gilbert approached LeBron and said, ‘Look, we have this deal on the table. I’ll do it if you promise to stay in Cleveland, ‘”Broussard said. “It was the last straw of why Kyrie wants to leave Cleveland.”

But James did not promise to stay, so Gilbert could not make the deal and rather confirmed that James would abandon them at the end of next season.

Irving is still in the Cavs with LeBron and it has even been commented that both have recently been in the same room in Miami, talking quietly, so it seems that they are going to endure this coming season.

Next season is 100 percent sure LeBron is leaving, although at least Clippers star Blake Griffin does not see him in the Lakers.

“I could see him go to New York before LA. Honestly, I do not see him coming for a period to LA, “Griffin said. “I think something is plotting with your group of friends. I do not know what’s going to happen, but I think they’re into something and they’re going to try to make it work. “

Those friends Griffin refers to are Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade. It’s no secret that the four would like to join in the 2018-219 campaign and the likely destinations are New York, Los Angeles, Houston and Miami. What do you bet on?
