    why did Kyrie agree to come on the show if he wasn't going to reveal anything juicy. It clearly seems like there was something between him and LeBron but I understand him not wanting to reveal it to the public.

    Funny Lebron came back to the Cavs because they had Irving not because they were about to trade for Love..... lelz

    The Irony.

    Lebron's shadow wasn't as overwhelming as MJ's. Lebron was a better version of Pippen.

    You dun see Pippen scram in his prime.

    Lebron is probably going to be only player in the history of the NBA to be top 5 in points, rebounds, and assists in the playoffs. I mean he is a little better than pippin.

    Very. No respect. That's the reason why Kyrie is on another team.

    What I said, he is a better Pippen plus a tad of Jordan (just the scoring part). Pippen was a Top 25 player of all time........aint nothing wrong with that.

    Irving didn't even inform Lebron after Lebron hard carried his ass to 3 finals.

    How good is Irving by himself? Dude was a nobody collecting top 5 picks before Lebron arrived. A lot of the reason Irving is seen as a superstar now is because Lebron enabled him to succeed.

    Wade signing now makes this trade way better than before and a total slam dunk for the Cavs.

    Wade can play pg until Thomas is healthy. They can go Wade/Crowder/Lebron/Love/Thompson for a very big lineup and in the playoffs go Thomas/Wade/Lebron/Love/Thompson for a lineup that is as good as GSW's starting 5.

    They should have moved moved TT for melo just for the entertainment factor. Then maybe trade that Brooklyn pick for cp3 and you have the banana boat.

    This isn't LeBron at his worst but it's dripping with condescension.

    Definitely no love lost.

    He deserves to take as many shots as he wants with the way they treated him. Good for him.
