Now at a slower part of the off-season news around the NBA is starting to become scarcer by the day. However, the topic of discussion the past couple weeks has been dominated by Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The potential of a possible Irving trade has NBA fans everywhere salivating.

Subsequently, the root of these rumors comes from a possible disdain between Irving and LeBron James. It appears Irving may want to transition to being the main piece and have a franchise of his own. Moreover, the lack of communication has caused people to start to take sides between James and Irving.

Now, the topic is surrounded by a wedding video of Irving and Stephen Curry mimicking and laughing at James’ workout videos. Matt Barnes joined FS1’s Undisputed today and voiced his opinion on the whole situation and how people should be treating James.

Following from Undisputed.

“I think people get caught up so much in hating on him (LeBron James) instead of sitting back and realizing you’re witnessing history. He’s one of the best players,”

“We live in a world where it’s OK to hate. We give people without a voice on social media a voice and a platform to express their opinion.”
