LeBron Responds To Report That He's 'Eager' For Cavs To Trade Kyrie

LeBron James isn't happy with Kyrie rumors.

Over the weekend, rumors leaked that Kyrie Irving wanted out of Cleveland.

Irving reportedly met with the Cavaliers on July 7 to request a trade. According to multiple reports, LeBron was devastated by the news, although other reports hinted that LeBron was the one that leaked the trade rumors in the first place.

Tuesday morning, LeBron responded to multiple reports that he was "eager" for the Cavs to trade Kyrie, and that LeBron would be tempted to "beat Kyrie's a**."

James responded on Twitter.

This is the first time we've heard LeBron address the rumors of a frayed relationship between himself and Kyrie. It's difficult to know what's going on behind the scenes, but it's clear something isn't right in Cleveland.
