Now Chris Paul Is Involved In The Lebron James-Kyrie Irving Drama
Multiple reports now suggest his problems with Lebron are personal.
The latest comes from Fox 1 analyst Rob Parker. He told Colin Cowherd on Colin’s show The Herd that Kyrie felt betrayed when he learned Lebron pushed to trade him for Chris Paul.

“Kyrie found out that, after they won the championship, LeBron wanted Kyrie traded for Chris Paul. And I think that he found this out, and it cut him deep, and there’s no trust. This makes sense on why Kyrie would want to move on and want to move away from the greatest player on the planet.”
Ironically, if Irving expressed his desire to be traded earlier this offseason there’s a good chance the Cavs and Clippers could have swung a Paul for Irving deal. Instead, Paul was dealt to the Rockets and Kyrie is in limbo.
