Report: Kyrie Found Out LeBron Pushed For A Trade For Chris Paul

He reportedly found out about the attempted trade after The Finals.

LeBron James reportedly pushed for a trade for Chris Paul after the 2016 NBA Finals.

That's what Fox Sports 1's Rob Parker reported this morning, anyway.

James reportedly pushed for a Kyrie Irving-Chris Paul trade after the win Golden State. Per Parker, this ruined Irving's trust in James and believes that's now why he wants to be moved.

It's believable that James would want Paul, his close friend and a better overall point guard, over Irving. And Irving reportedly considered asking to be traded for that Finals, per ESPN.

But would LeBron really ask for Irving to be moved for Paul right after the Cavs won the championship?

That seems doubtful.
