Lebron James

“Heavy lies the crown” is age old adage regarding the difficulty of being king. LeBron James might know something about that. His return to Cleveland was supposed to be an easy transition to greener pastures ending with a Cavaliers championship that’d bring NBA immortality. That hasn’t quite been the case and it might have something to do with his teammates.

Stephen A. Smith mentioned a rumor that Kyrie Irving wasn’t happy in Cleveland and might feel more comfortable playing elsewhere. Within days of the report, LeBron went to Twitter and let off what some might consider some subliminal shots.

No clue what LeBron could or might be referring to, but it’s not beneath him to air out a grievance about a teammate on social media. He did the same thing to Kevin Love last year.
