LeBron James ‘blindsided and disappointed’ of Kyrie Irving’s desired exit, other Cavs made aware too
While this secret was kept under wraps for a few days, it didn’t take long to reach team talisman LeBron James, who immediately felt “blindsided” and “disappointed” after hearing the news, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.
Other members of the team have also been made aware of Irving’s plans.
Said plans can come a reality in the near future as the organization is seeking to avoid a miserable free agency period like this one in its future.
The franchise reportedly is disturbed that this news had been made public out of fear that it could potentially impact Irving’s trade value, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.
As for his teammates, they could also be looking at greener pastures if an imminent Irving trade doesn’t bring back the necessary pieces to contend for a championship.
Regardless of the outcome, the city of Cleveland has a rattling cage in its hands coming into this new season.
