Rumors surrounding Cleveland guard Kyrie Irving’s future are swirling and NBA fans are anxious to see what will unfold. Will Uncle Drew be traded to one of the four teams that were mentioned in reports as his desired destinations (the Heat, Spurs, Timberwolves, or Knicks)? Will the Cavaliers hang onto the young star—one of the flashiest guards in the game—and hope he changes his mind about staying in Cleveland?
Throughout the Kyrie drama this offseason, fans have paid close attention to how one man will react. That man is LeBron James.
King James is known for his exceptional abilities to both clown people on the court and to shade them off of it. Don’t believe me? Watch the video above.
LeBron has proven his lowkey shade abilities—and his desire to roast you—time and time again throughout his career. There was that party with the rude Warriors tombstone cookies. And the time he unfollowed the Cavs on Twitter—one of many times he’s utilized the social media platform for shade. Oh, and don’t forget about his Ultimate Warrior shirt. Classic.
