After losing LeBron James to South Beach, the fans in Cleveland are understandably worried about losing their new franchise player, Kyrie Irving, to free agency. This past summer a Cleveland area reporter said that inside sources told him that Irving wanted to leave the Cavs, which caused the Cavaliers point God to respond that he had no intentions of leaving.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Kevin Durant told The Oklahoman that switching his representation to Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports is not a sign that he will leave the Thunder once he is eligible for free agency.
"He has nothing to do with if I'm going to leave OKC or none of that," Durant said. "I heard that before so put that out on the table. He has nothing to do with that. He knows his lane with me. Their team knows their lane with me. And they're letting me handle the basketball part. I would tell fans not to worry about that at all."
If you are a Miami Heat detractor (or just a plain ol’ hater) then you’ll enjoy this. Around the league Heat fans are often snickered at for their “Bro Culture” wardrobes and affinity for wearing sunglasses indoors at NBA games, and are often labelled as bandwagoners. Last night as Tony Parker took over down the stretch in the fourth quarter, and LeBron was turning the ball over on consecutive possessions, fans wanting to “beat traffic” starting flocking out of the building in droves.
