Things just got real.

According to a report from Complex, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving has unfollowed LeBron James on Instagram. This is just the latest chapter in an ongoing saga that includes a trade request from Kyrie, a report that LeBron wants to "beat his ass" and LeBron consequently denying those claims. Whatever the issue is between them, Irving most definitely isn't over it.

The sudden, self-imposed exit of Irving seems to be set in stone though, as the Cavaliers have signed former Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose to a one-year contract. Could the Cavs be ill-equipped for the future, especially with LeBron potentially leaving as well after next season? Only time will tell.
