Kyrie Irving Unfollows LeBron James on Instagram, Cleveland Freaks Out

This NBA Offseason has been one of the busiest and most intriguing in years past. We have seen a number of moves already made and some players getting some new places to play. Well, today the Cleveland Cavs are back in the news, this time around as Kyrie Irving Unfollows LeBron James on Instagram. You may recall a few days ago the word came down that Kyrie had requested a trade and that he did not want to play with LeBron anymore.

In the days since we have heard that LeBron was “displeased and disappointed” in Irving’s request and wanting to “beat his a**”, according to Stephen A. Smith. Well now comes the word that Kyrie has unfollowed LeBron on IG, which has made Cleveland fans collectively lose their minds. While this may not seem like a big deal to most, to the younger generation this move marks a clear and define split between the two teammates. Interesting news to say the least, especially on the heels of the Cavs signing Derrick Rose. Speak your thoughts on the news below and give us your thoughts in the comments. Keep it locked for more from the world of sports coming soon.
