Shocker coming from Cleveland today as Stephen A. Smith reports that Kyrie Irving is not happy in Cleveland and is looking to play elsewhere. Irving used to be the man in Cleveland until LeBron came back to town and took back the throne. This report comes from Stephen A. Smith so most fans will take it with a grain of salt.
“Dating back to last year, I’ve been told that Kyrie Irving ain’t too happy being in Cleveland,” Smith stated on First Take this morning. “The situation is not ideal for him. I don’t know the particulars, I haven’t spoken to him personally. It’s something that I’ve been hearing for months; that under ideal circumstances he would prefer to be someplace other than Cleveland.”

With Kyrie possibly looking to move elsewhere and Kevin Love not performing the way he should be, the Cavaliers could be making big changes this off-season. Irving was crucial in the finals until he was injured and he was playing extremely well against Stephen Curry.
It has been documented that Kyrie was not happy with the Cavaliers last year as they pressured him to play under a sore knee which eventually led to his fractured patella injury. The Cavaliers have seem to do a good job of not rushing him back too quickly.
The young star is considered one of the top point-guards of this league and it is pretty outrageous to hear that he wants to leave Cleveland and find another place. The rumor will definitely have some teams salivating to pick him up to form a championship team.
