Kyrie Irving drilled about LeBron James in new interview

Kyrie Irving has been the target of criticism due to his decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers to take command of his own team in the Boston Celtics, but he also left a lot of potential money on the table, which the franchise would have likely paid out if he was the key remaining star left in the roster. And well, his comments about former teammate LeBron James will likely be making headlines around the basketball world for some time.

An inquisitive Smith then asked Irving if his trade request was "something that had been percolating for a while". Irving replied, "Why would I have to?"

Smith: "If you don't speak to someone about it, they might take it personally".

That has to be considered the biggest shade throwing in the history of eight-word responses.

Irving served as James's sidekick since the latter's return to Cleveland in 2014. There is no time to figure out how to save someone's feelings when ultimately, you have to be selfish in that in figuring out what you want to do. I'm not here to tirade anybody or go at one particular person or the organization because I have nothing but love for Cleveland. I wasn't going to allow anything else to get in the way of our team's success so I was just very diligent and very professional in terms of this whole entire process and the request came at a time where I felt it deemed right for me.

Irving said he is "appreciative" that he was able to play with some of the best players and coaches but he realized that he had to do what was best for him and his career.

"It's time to make that decision". It wasn't anything about that. "And I want to be happy, and flawless my craft in doing so". "And that was the only the intent that I had in all of this". James was named the Finals MVP, though it was Irving who hit the series-winning shot in Game 7. Speculation and rumors ensued until a month later Irving was traded to the Boston Celtics for Isaiah Thomas and other players and picks.

The NBA season opens when the Celtics play in Cleveland on October 17.
