On Stephen A. Smith's radio show yesterday, the ESPN personality claimed that his "sources" have literally told him that LeBron "would be tempted" to beat Kyrie Irving's ass if they came face to face right now.

Of course, this is all stemming from reports that Kyrie requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers because he's tired of playing alongside LeBron James.

Speaking on his radio show Monday, Stephen A said, per the Washington Post,

“I’ve had sources in LeBron James’s camp literally tell me, and I’m quoting,  … if Kyrie Irving was in front of LeBron James right now, LeBron James would be tempted, quote, to beat his ass, end quote.”

Another report from Cleveland.com stated that LeBron is "eager" for the Cavs, who recently signed Derrick Rose, to trade 25-year old 4x All-Star, Kyrie Irving.

LeBron has apparently been paying attention to what these "sources" have been saying and he recently took to twitter to shut them down as #NotFacts.

Check out LeBron's response to the rumors below... as well as his ringing endorsement of the movie, "Girls Trip."
