Everyone Is Roasting LeBron After Kyrie Irving's Trade Request

Did King James respond with this subliminal IG shot?

Published July 24, 2017

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been to three straight NBA Finals, having won one championship within that stretch. Perhaps that's what made Kyrie Irving reportedly requesting to be traded from the Cavs over the weekend such a shocker.

ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said that the All-Star point guard doesn't want to be LeBron James's "little brother" or "sidekick" any more, also referencing rumored reports that the King may very well decide to leave the Land again at the end of next season. So, in other words, Irving didn't want to wait for the latter to happen and is requesting the trade now.

Well, Bron might have subliminally responded via a Snapchat post in which he's bopping his head to select lyrics from Meek Mill.

Hmm ...

Meanwhile, people are responding in true Twitter fashion, using the explosive news to roast the hell out of LeBron with these hilarious reactions.

  1. Peep how LeBron vibed out to Meek Mill's 'Heavy Heart' upon learning that Kyrie is requesting a trade from the Cavs

    He shook his head while Meek raps, "N****r said they with you when they really not (really not)."
