Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James is denying a report that he wants point guard Kyrie Irving traded. He tweeted on Tuesday denying the report.

Since Irving’s request was leaked on Friday afternoon, reports said it was James, who leaked the news to the media. Irving reportedly made the request at least two weeks ago during the NBA Draft and no word even came out about it until recently.

There’s animosity between the players, according to reports. According to Joe Vardon of, he denied the report despite that heat between the two All-Stars.

However, another report, is suggesting that Irving is jealous of the special treatment that James, a four-time MVP, receives. Yet, James basically calls all the shots with the Cavaliers even though Koby Altman is the new GM and Dan Gilbert is the owner.

Is it not uncommon for two star players to have beef with one another. The last big instance was with Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal.

But to make things work, the team usually has to pick one over the other. In this particular instance, the Los Angeles Lakers chose Bryant over O’Neal after one-year together before shipping O’Neal to the Miami Heat in a blockbuster deal.

A trade with Irving moving on is inevitable, according to reports, despite Irving being the younger of the two players. James could also walk next summer — and there’s already speculation that he could move to Los Angeles and play for the Lakers or the Clippers for the rest of his career.

He already owns a house in Los Angeles.

When the Lakers picked Bryant, he spent his entire career with the team. O’Neal bounced around with a few more teams before calling it a career.
