Did Kyrie Irving Take A Shot At LeBron With A Message On His Hat?
The divorce between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving is only getting even more petty as time goes on. Despite Irving being traded to the Boston Celtics over a month ago, it appears that Kyrie is still taking shots at his former Cavs teammate. Following the Celtics’ first preseason game of 2017 against the Charlotte Hornets, Irving was wearing a hat with a message that seemingly targeted LeBron. During the postgame interviews, Irving was wearing a hat that read, “Popularity contests are not truth contests.”
This isn’t the first time Irving has addressed LeBron and the trade from the Cavaliers. A couple of weeks ago, Irving appeared on ESPN’s “First Take” where he told Stephen A. Smith:
“I don’t think you owe anything to another person in terms of figuring out what you want to do with your life. It’s not anything personal, I’m not here to tirade anybody or to go at any particular person or the organization because I have nothing but love for Cleveland. I have nothing but love for the time I spent there. It’s nothing about that. There comes a time where you mature as an individual, it’s time to make that decision, and there is no looking back from that standpoint. There is no time to figure out how to save somebody’s feelings when ultimately you have to be selfish in figuring out what you want to do.”
