LeBron holds court, discusses Irving, distaste for Trump

LeBron holds court, discusses Irving, distaste for Trump”

The falling out that shocked the National Basketball Association - with Kyrie Irving demanding out of Cleveland and immediately landing with their top rival in Boston and out from under the shadow LeBron James - the 32-year-old James used Cavaliers Media Day as the venue to finally touch on the trade and the crumbling of their relationship.

The #Kyrie Irving-#Lebron James saga has been one of the biggest stories this offseason, especially with the media trying its best to put fire in the trade to create some friction.

While covering a variety of topics, including former teammate Kyrie Irving, the newest members of the Cavs and even President Donald Trump, LeBron also talked about his free agency.

James says his intention to remain with the Cavs for the remainder of his career hasn't changed, but that ultimately, he'll have to make a "business" decision. "Because, like I told you guys throughout the season, at some point, when he was ready to take over the keys, I was ready to give them to him".

"I think that's what Koby (Altman) would want in the front office and I think that's what Dan (Gilbert) would want", James said.

James said the practice of kneeling could "trickle down" to the National Basketball Association if things don't change by the start of the October 17 regular season.

When asked if that were still the case, the 15th-year pro said, "It hasn't changed".

The 5-foot-9 Thomas' injured right hip has made steady progress and he's begun on-court activities, the Cavaliers said Monday just prior to the start of their annual media day. Dwayne Wade could join that chorus after getting a buyout from the Chicago Bulls.

James is in the final year of his contract, though he has a player option for the 2018-19 season. The 32 year old had an iconic season last season averaging 26.4 points, 8.7 assists and 8.6 rebounds.
