Kyrie Irving prefers to play for Clippers

Kyrie Irving Pays Homage to Bruce Lee & Kobe Bryant with New Shoes

Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving unveiled the Nike Kyrie 3 "Bruce Lee", which pays homage to his "favorite shoe ever" and his mentor Kobe Bryant.

"I'm told [Kyrie] wants to play for the Clippers".

Vescey also said that Irving has not threatened to sit out games next season if he is not moved.

The Nike Extravaganza he's referring to is a high school event at Mater Dei in Santa Ana, Calif. Irving and St. Patrick (Elizabeth, N.J.) beat Taft (Woodland Hills, Calif.) in the 2010 edition of the prominent showcase, with Irving putting up 24 points and six assists to further cement his status as one of the nation's best recruits. The reasoning behind his request was that he wanted to go to a team where he could be more of the "focal point" rather than playing the role of sidekick to superstar LeBron James.

Irving, who is an NBA Champion and multiple-time All-Star, has two years or so left before he's officially an NBA free agent.

Serbian worldwide Milos Teodosic and forward Danilo Gallinari can not be traded until December 15, making this possibility a much more realistic one later into the season. Possibly a multi-team deal could be arranged, though.

He saw Kyrie Irving in the playoffs this year-in between the first round when they beat in and the second round when they played Toronto-go consecutive days without speaking to a teammate at practice.

Just a day ago, a report from NBC Sports' Dan Feldman talked about Kyrie Irving going consecutive days during the playoffs without talking to his Cavs' teammates.

"Phoenix, of course, hired James Jones this offseason", McMenamin said.

Apparently, this happened between the first round of the playoffs, when the Cavaliers were facing the Indiana Pacers, and the second-round series against the Toronto Raptors.
