Earlier this afternoon, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported some news that has fans of the Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers on high-alert. “Windy,” as Windhorst is known, claimed that Cavs All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving had asked for a trade in a meeting held last week.

Within minutes, the great basketball minds of Twitter erupted with opinionated banter. Let’s take a look at some of their replies.

The Shadow League, a sports and culture social media platform, posted this classic Dave Chappelle GIF in response to Windhorst’s tweet.

Tommy Beer, senior NBA analyst for basketballinsiders.com, showed his disbelief with yet another GIF.

How about HOOPmag’s Josh Eberley’s take on the news — the entire city of Cleveland burning to the ground?

Fox Soccer’s Aaron West chimed in with this clip of Jimmy Butler casting a noticing stare.

Josh Salano of AS Roma Press may have summed up what every Cavs fan is thinking after hearing about Irving’s request to be traded with one word.

Or, if you’re fine with cursing, Dylan Scott of voxdotcom has a more explicit version of the previous tweet.

Carson Cunningham of KOCO-TV had one of the more popular replies to Windy’s tweet. This one shows a confused LeBron James.

Tyler Lytle, quarterback at the University of Colorado, is obviously a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Twitter user @Utah_AM posted this hilarious shot of a gorilla minding his own business in the jungle.

Finally, if you’re a Cavs fan, you probably share the sentiments of Alissa Holdson.

As of right now, there is no report verifying whether or not Irving will indeed be granted a trade. Keep your browsers locked on Cavs Nation for more updates as they become available.
