    Basketball star Kyrie Irving is blaming the media for fabricating drama between him and former teammate LeBron James. Speaking on Monday’s episode of I Am Athlete he blamed the media for running with the idea that he had asked to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017 as a bid to get away from James. He said, “We gotta be cool as brothers, whether we’re playing together or whether we’re not playing together. We have to protect one another because it will seep into family life where people will really think that we don’t like each other based on us not being able to play together anymore. You know what I mean? ‘You asked for a trade, so you must hate that dude.’ — That’s not true. So I had to defend myself. He had to defend himself. Right. And it was like, I’m trying to put that to bed so I could continue to build my own legacy, but I’m continuously reminded over and over again.” “Right,” agreed football player LeSean McCoy “‘Yo, you left...
    What's more, Nets' coach Steve Nash said Irving was with the team in the locker room at halftime and added that he didn't understand the city rules enough to explain why Irving could be on the floor and in the locker room but barred from sitting on the bench with his teammates. Durant also told the mayor that he has to "figure something out, man, because it's looking crazy. Especially on national TV, and [Irving] can come to the game, but not play — come on, man. Hey, yo, Eric." What else? It's not as though Irving is completely barred from playing — when the Nets are on the road, he can play, and he has been. It's just the pesky New York City mandate that's keeping him from playing home games. What's more, the Daily Wire pointed out that the night before the Knicks game, Irving attended the ACC Championship Game between Duke and Virginia Tech at Barclays Center — the Nets' home arena. So why wasn't he allowed the next day to...
    Unvaccinated Nets guard Kyrie Irving made a pair of appearances at Brooklyn's Barclays Center over the weekend, not because New York City lifted its injection mandate for private sector employees, but rather because the NBA star wasn't working.  While New York Mayor Eric Adams has eased the city's mandates, allowing fans to attend games without presenting proof of vaccination, the mandate for local workers remains in place. And as such, the 29-year-old former top-overall draft pick will continue to be sidelined for home games.  The unmasked Irving was at Barclays Center on Saturday to watch his alma mater, Duke, lose the ACC Tournament title game to Virginia Tech before returning on Sunday to see his Nets beat the crosstown rival Knicks thanks to 53 points from Brooklyn star Kevin Durant. Afterwards, Durant directed a message to Adams, an avowed Nets fan, by accusing the Mayor of using the mandate to gain notoriety.

    Both LeBron James and Kevin Durant are furious that Kyrie Irving is allowed to sit courtside at a Nets game, but he still can’t play.  The Brooklyn Nets recorded a close 110-107 win over the Knicks on Sunday at the Barclays Center, but most of the talk from the action is coming from what was going on away from the action. That’s because Kyrie Irving, who can’t play home games, was sitting courtside. So, Irving is allowed to be in the building, but New York City Mayor Eric Adams still hasn’t changed the rules to let the star guard suit up. With this, both Kevin Durant and LeBron James have called out Adams for what’s going on.

    Kyrie Irving was set up to be the man in Cleveland. When he joined the franchise in 2011, he was the number one overall pick in the draft. He proved why he deserved that recognition with some incredible play. But the franchise was still struggling, as they hadn’t built the team properly since the departure of LeBron James. But fans could see that Kyrie Irving was the real deal. James and Kyrie formed a dynamic duo However, things took a turn for the better. LeBron James, the man who had scorned Cleveland, the NBA, the entire country, and the world, returned after a four-year stint with the Miami Heat. He had won two NBA championships with the Heat but wanted to deliver on his promise to bring a chip to the Cleveland Cavaliers. One of the big factors for James’ return was how good Kyrie Irving was proving to be. The Cavaliers then traded for Kevin Love to create a star trio that could win a championship. While injuries hampered their efforts on the first try, the Cavs were able...
    LeBron James and Kyrie Irving helped the Cavaliers break the Cleveland sports curse when they finally lifted an NBA title. However, the differences between them grew bigger after that win, and it ultimately forced Kyrie to part ways with the Cavs. All of this left the headlines filled with rumors of LeBron and Kyrie’s feud and how they disliked each other’s presence. But now, a teammate of theirs has spoken about how they treated one another when they were on the same unit. Were the former Cavaliers stars foes in reality? JR Smith joined the Cleveland Cavaliers in the same 2014-15 season when LeBron James reunited with his former team. He spent enough time with both Bron and Kyrie to give a real insight into the dynamics of their turbulent relationship. Surprisingly, Smith had something positive to say about their relationship. In a recent interview, the 35-YO, who again played alongside Bron in 2019-20, expressed, “LeBron and Kyrie are not archenemies. Actually, they get along great.” Now, this was something no one was prepared to hear about...
    LeBron James continues to amaze. This season, at age 36, James is the frontrunner for the MVP race. James has been one of the best players in the NBA and has contributed greatly to the Lakers’ strong start to the season. The Lakers currently have the second-best record in the NBA, only second to the Jazz. But Bron’s free-throw shooting still remains a weakness in his game. Kyrie Irving takes shots at LeBron James During the Lakers’ game against the Nets, LeBron James missed yet another free throw. After the miss, Nets’ guard, Kyrie Irving, mocked him and the Lakers by asking if James was really their best free-throw shooter. Irving took aim at a player with whom he has a very contentious relationship, even though they have shared success together in the past. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving began playing together in 2014. James had re-signed with the Clevel and Cavaliers, after leaving the team four years prior to join the Miami Heat. During James’ absence, Kyrie Irving was the number one draft pick for the Cavaliers in 2011....
    Saturday Night Live recap: Regina King makes hosting debut 5 easy ways doctors can save on taxes Kyrie Irving to James Harden: Youre the point guard, and Im going to play shooting guard. Nets stars Kyrie Irving and James Harden had a brief chat at practice recently to determine who would be the point guard for the team. © Provided by HoopsHype “I feel like he’s been doing a great job of just managing the point guard role,” Irving said following Brooklyn’s 134-117 win over the Warriors Saturday night. “We established that maybe four days ago. I just looked at him and I said, ‘You’re the point guard, and I’m going to play shooting guard.’ That was as simple as that. He’s been taking control of the responsibilities and doing an incredible job. It just makes my job easier to just go out and play free and just make plays. It’s a luxury. I just want to continue it.” Harden, a two-time assists leader, is on his way to leading the league for the third time in that category...
    After months of speculation, the Houston Rockets finally traded away James Harden. They sent him to the Brooklyn Nets where he teams up with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Lakers star LeBron James and coach Frank Vogel commented on this trade which has shaken up the league. Following the Lakers’ victory against the Thunder, LeBron was asked about his reaction to the trade. But he barely had anything to say on the matter. He said, “Don’t really have too much of a reaction. Trades are things that happen every year. For me, my main focus is on what we do here and how we continue to get better. Trades happened today and I couldn’t allow myself to indulge in that knowing that we had a game that we had to play tonight.” Coach Vogel only had one concern, and that was chemistry. He said, “They’re obviously loaded with star power now. We’ll see how they can gel.” Should the Lakers be worrying more about James Harden and the Nets? The Nets now have arguably the most firepower in the league....
    Since LeBron James and Kyrie Irving have gone their separate ways, leaving the Cavs. The two have had a bittersweet relationship. But when they played together, it was a real spectacle to watch the two tear through the opponent’s defense. However, their Head Coach Tyronn Lue was the tactician behind the formidable Cavs team. Moreover, Lue knew how to keep his superstar players in check. It was probably one of the biggest reasons the Cavaliers lifted the 2016 NBA trophy. How Ty Lue made LeBron James and Kyrie Irving aware of his presence?

(Photo by Icon Sportswire) According to ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz, “Lue’s ability to earn the trust of superstars is an invaluable trait. In the words of one of his colleagues, Lue is an expert at going after a star player without leaving a scar.” Lue made his presence quite clear to both LeBron and Kyrie when...
    As the Lakers prepared to play Game 2 of the NBA Finals Friday night, LeBron James was asked about the secret to his seamless success with Anthony Davis. The always-analytical star didn’t give a technical basketball answer. But he gave a real one. “We’re not jealous of each other. That’s the best thing,” James said. “In professional sports, you have guys that join forces — you can call them alpha males; that’s what they call them. Two guys that have been dominant in a specific sport on their own respective teams — and they get together and they talk about how dominant they can be and they talk about this is going to be this and that. “I believe jealousy creeps in a lot, and that’s the absolute contrary of what we are. We know who we are, we know what we’re about. We want the best, seriously, every single day, both on and off the floor, for one another. We’re just not jealous of one another.” James has watched championship teams break up first-hand in Cleveland and Miami. He...

    In a recent article, NBA insiders Joe Vardon, Bill Oram, and Jason Lloyd of The Athletic talked about the brief but controversial stint of veteran shooting guard Dion Waiters on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Waiters, who was selected as the No. 4 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, was one of the young players that the Cavaliers tried to develop in the post-LeBron James era. However, though they were in the early phase of the rebuilding process during that time, it seems like James was also the main reason why the Cavaliers decided to bring Waiters to Cleveland. As Vardon, Oram, and Lloyd noted, via Kurt Helin of NBC Sports, the Cavaliers drafted Waiters with the hope that would be a “perfect fit” to their second unit if ever James considered returning to Cleveland. “The Cavs selected Waiters in 2012 with LeBron’s eventual return to the team from Miami in mind, sources said, to the point where they effectively shut down Waiters’ pre-draft workouts with a promise of taking him. The team’s executives at the time thought Waiters would be...
