Netease Sports reported on October 3:
A few days ago, Irwin praised his new teammate Durant when he participated in the show, saying that for the first time he met a teammate who was as strong as his key ball ability. Irwin's remarks are disrespectful to his former teammates, including his former elder brother LeBron. Although Irving tried his best to clarify, various media still refuted his naive remarks. Former teammates including Perkins, Jefferson and Tristan Thompson have also stood up to support LeBron.
Cavaliers inside Thompson and Irving are rookies in the same class, and their relationship with Irving has always been very good. At the same time, Thompson is also a solid supporter of LeBron. Thompson said: “I love him, I love LeBron, but I love LeBron too. But Irving’s remarks are really wrong, he really crossed the line by saying this. Irving has made a lot of money. Difficult goals, but LeBron has also scored a lot. Irving can certainly feel that he is the best option for the last shot. But he has played with LeBron, he has seen those goals that LeBron made. "
Richard Jefferson believes that Irving can certainly praise his new partner Durant, but he can do so without degrading others. Jefferson also said that especially since LeBron is currently competing for the championship, Irving's remarks made people feel very disappointed.
As a hardcore James fan, Kendrick Perkins's remarks are even sharper. Perkinstein said that Irving is jealous of LeBron: "Irwin is so jealous of LeBron that he can't hide his emotions at all!!!" It is worth mentioning that LeBron was interviewed earlier. Speaking of jealousy among teammates. He said: "Envy and suspicion have killed many great causes, not only in sports, but also in many industries. But Anthony Davis and I have never been jealous of each other."
