A History of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving's Complicated Relationship

If the Cleveland Cavaliers receive a trade offer they deem credible for Kyrie Irving, the National Basketball Association all-star could be playing somewhere else next season.

Justise Winslow not only said Thursday that he appreciates fellow Duke product Kyrie Irving seeking to broaden his National Basketball Association possibilities, but that he would embrace the opportunity to call Irving a Miami Heat teammate.

The Heat, Knicks, Spurs and Timberwolves make up the list of Irving's preferred teams in a trade.

Well, according to a report from Jason Lloyd of The Athletic, LeBron has been doing everything that he can to recruit players to the Cavaliers over the past several weeks.

As the New York Post noted, Irving spent some of his formative years in schools that were not that far away from Madison Square Garden, so it would not be that surprising to learn that he harbors a desire to essentially go back home.

One of the top trending topics on Twitter has been this Kyrie Irving story.

Thousands of people have died in the streets - shot by police, or killed under unknown circumstances, apparently by vigilantes. Pacleb said his men were able to confiscate various firearms and illegal drugs during the separate operations.

They'll be left with a team whose best player is its least committed on defense. Woj reported that seven teams had submitted formal offers to Cleveland.

If Phoenix offers Eric Bledsoe, Josh Jackson and the Miami Heat's first-round pick in next year's draft, the Cavaliers would accept the deal and they'd ship Irving to Arizona.

Following his seventh season as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, James announces he will leave the franchise that selected him first overall in 2003 in order to sign with the Miami Heat as a free agent. That said, which team would you like to see Irving go to? Coach Tyronn Lue is also a strong supporter of Irving and has been a strong defender when Irving's game - which is sometimes more shoot-first than pass-first for a point guard - has come under criticism.

Certainly, every National Basketball Association team knows it. Although I see the writing on the wall, as does Irving, LeBron could leave the Cavs high and dry and leave Irving in a awful situation. Jordan for Irving in a player for player swap works well for both teams. They do more of the "little things" that don't show up in box scores.

Irving, a four-time All-Star, has averaged 21.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game for his career.
