    Nah, you wouldn't, you'd be kissing LeBron's feet like any other Bogut.

    Typical LeBron passive aggressive emo BS. @J.R. or someone prob posted on last page or two.

    edit: here's a new one calling LA home lol (yes, I know he owns a home there, but I'm sure he knew how this would be interpreted)

    Lol maybe the reason Lebron is so pissed is because if Irving said this before the season ended he could have been traded for Paul straight up. I mean tbh this just ineptitude on the Cavs I'm pretty sure Cpr for Irving straight up would have pleased all parties immensely.

    Not that I'm complaining, Clips must be kicking themselves for trading Cp3 for Bev when they could've had Irving lol

    Hahaha now that would be gold! Cavs could've had CP3..Clippers don't have the assets now though. Don't want to see Beverley with Lebron either.

    Woj:

    The Cavaliers find themselves far more fixated on a young star, including New York's Kristaps Porzingis, Boston's Jayson Tatum, Phoenix's Josh Jackson and Denver's Jamal Murray, league sources told ESPN.

    Cleveland is determined to get an elite young player for Irving, which means this: The trade plan the Cavaliers would have prioritized, with James committed for the long term -- veterans to surround James and draft picks -- isn't in motion. If the Cavaliers knew they had James committed, for example, San Antonio could emerge as a more intriguing trade partner. The Spurs have interest in Irving, league sources say, and Irving's willingness to commit to an extension with the Spurs makes for legitimate win-now deal possibilities for Cleveland. Without James beyond next season, though, the likes of LaMarcus Aldridge, Tony Parker and Danny Green hold no appeal.

    Boston has expressed interest in Irving and could offer the best combination of short-term (Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder) and long-term (Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, picks) assets. The Celtics have made no formal offer, and it is against Boston's front-office DNA to push out front with the most generous offer. Boston knows that Cleveland is mostly intrigued with Tatum, but the sides have not formally discussed that deal, league sources said.

    This Irving trade process has been deliberate, and teams believe the Cavaliers expect more aggressive conversations in September, closer to the start of training camps. Porzingis has emerged as a primary Cleveland target, but that's a conversation that can occur only with Cleveland's willingness to unburden the Knicks of the three years and $55 million left on Joakim Noah's contract. For now, the conversation is a nonstarter for the Knicks, league sources said.

    For the right All-Star player, though -- Irving or otherwise -- multiple NBA teams are seriously questioning how emphatic of a "no" that will stay for New York. There continues to be distance between Porzingis and the organization, and how the Knicks truly value Porzingis' future could become clearer once they're together to begin the season.

    Milwaukee has shown interest in Irving, too, league sources said, but there isn't that one young star -- of course, Giannis Antetokounmpo is untouchable -- who makes sense for Cleveland.

    When Irving's trade request became public in mid-July, there was internal hope that the news would stir the market to furnish Cleveland with a return that could deliver impact to the 2017-18 season with James, as well as the possibility of a future without him. That hasn't happened, and it's become clear that Irving isn't commanding that kind of robust return on the market.

    Between now and the inevitable Irving trade, Cleveland officials will make a choice on what the franchise values most -- its today or its tomorrow. Without a commitment to stay, without the presumption of a future together, LeBron James could be left in a most unfamiliar position: out of championship contention in Cleveland, counting the days until goodbye.

    LeBron stuck it to the Cavs by refusing to waive his no-trade clause and making sure they are empty-handed when he leaves.

    They can jab back by planning for the future this season instead of going for broke.

    I'm loving it. Seems like the perfect pay back for Dan Gilbert's now infamous letter/rant.
