What was already a rumored rocky relationship turned a bit more sour this afternoon during Kyrie Irving’s introductory press conference with the Boston Celtics.
While Irving didn’t call out King James or the Cavs by name, he wasn’t exactly sub-tweeting either:
"To be in a place like this where everyone gravitates to us as a team (not indiv)," @KyrieIrving says, "I just wanted to be a part of that."

Pointed words from Kyrie Irving: "Is there ever such a thing as one person carrying a team? I don’t think so."

Needless to say, there doesn’t appear to be any love lost between Kyrie Irving and LeBron James.
Perhaps there was some fire to that smoke about LeBron sleeping with one of Kyrie’s ex-girlfriends.
As if the Cavs-Celtics games this upcoming season weren’t going to be must-watch already, now we might see some actual blood spilled on the floor.
