Kyrie Irving says leaving Cleveland was 'inevitable' before Cavs-Celtics

Kyrie Irving says leaving Cleveland was 'inevitable' before Cavs-Celtics Kyrie Irving says leaving Cleveland was 'inevitable' before Cavs-Celtics

Before Kyrie Irving requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers, he reportedly believed LeBron James and the team were trying to push him out.

When Gilbert, who declined to be interviewed for this story, was presented with the Celtics as a trade partner for Irving, he went to LeBron and tried to secure a pledge from his franchise player to remain beyond the 2017-18 season.

"That being said, it just took some time to figure it out".

The Spurs' main trade chips in the offseason were LaMarcus Aldridge and Danny Green.

He added: "They didn't want me there".

Apprised of that comment a week later, James replied, "That makes absolutely no sense", but declined to elaborate.

MacMullan noted the Cavs front office started looking into trades involving the point guard in June, before his request was made. Very complicated. It seems there were a variety of factors that led to Irving leaving Cleveland, including everything from his own natural tendency to seek out new challenges to the role his dad may or may not have played in the way Irving perceived Cleveland's treatment of him. However, in a recent interview with Irving, it turns out that this trade nearly didn't happen and the reason he wanted to leave Cleveland was that he knew they wanted to trade him anyway - originally to a very different team.

"Because if we play faster, we get shots off easier". "I can do that anytime".

In response, Irving began considering a new challenge and a future away from Cleveland after six seasons with the team.

As the world turns (or flips, if you're Kyrie), the revisionism of the breakup between Irving and James is still unfolding.

"I had a talk with Dan in the most professional way possible", Irving says. "So when you're explaining to him why it's important to push the pace and I think he was reluctant to do that, because, well, 'because I can get mine regardless.' Well, it's not necessarily about you".

ESPN's Jackie MacMullan's lengthy article looks at a number of different factors involved, focusing on Irving's unhappiness with his situation at the time. He meets his former team on Wednesday when the Cavaliers travel to Boston.
