Kyrie Irving allow the rumor to live that he left the Cleveland Cav’s due to a dislike of playing second fiddle to LaBron James after his return from the Miami Heat.

Recently on a sports network former teammate Richard Jefferson refuted the rumors and offered an alternative reason for the All-Star’s departure. In late summer 2017, the Cavaliers granted Kyrie Irving a trade request and sent him to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Jefferson, Ante Zizic and Jae Crowder in addition to draft picks.

In a TV appearance, Jefferson vehemently denied the primary reason was due to James’ role as team leader. He suggested Irving found out about a Cav’s front office attempt to trade him in a three team deal – the deal failed, but no before souring Irvings relationship with the organization.

Jefferson was clear saying, “Once he found out that he was on the trading block and a trade almost went through, he was like, ‘I’m gone and I never want to come back here.’”
