Yesterday, ESPN's Brian Windhorst was revealed that—to little surprise to many—that Kyrie Irving has wanted out of Cleveland for years. The only thing about that revelation is that it's not true, according to Irving himself. The guard angrily defended himself against the accusations last night.
Sick to my stomach with all these rumors and accusations. Can I play without media guessing at my life and putting B.S out for headlines.— Kyrie Irving (@KyrieIrving) April 5, 2014
It brings nothing but negativity to the team and portraying me as something I'm not. I don't want or need the attention, so it can stop now.— Kyrie Irving (@KyrieIrving) April 5, 2014
At least be man or woman enough to come and ask me. There's no such source as "Kyrie's camp", nothing but nonsense.— Kyrie Irving (@KyrieIrving) April 5, 2014
Fair enough, but there have been multiple reasons why Irving would want to leave Cleveland. One of which is how the Cavaliers have yet to achieve a winning season since LeBron James left. Still, this is good news for Cavaliers fans.
