It seems like Kyrie Irving still doesn’t like LeBron James.
Back when Kevin Durant joined the Brooklyn Nets, Irving took a not-so-subtle shot at LeBron’s shooting ability when he said he felt like he was the first option on every team he played on including the 2016 Cavs championship squad.
"I felt like I was the best option on every team I’ve played for down the stretch. This is the first time in my career where I can be like 'that motherf*cker can make that shot too.'"

Apparently, Kyrie still feels like LeBron isn’t a competent shooter all these years later. On Thursday night, Kyrie could be heard mocking LeBron after he missed a technical free throw shot.
"That's your best free throw shooter?"

LeBron fans didn’t appreciate Kyrie taking shots at the Lakers superstar during the game.
Kyrie childish. He should show some respect to the man that carried him to a championship. He’s been nothing without him.
