Kyrie Irving has been making headlines all Summer long for his on-going “beef” with teammate LeBron James. Back in June, he told the Cleveland Cavaliers that he was done being Lebron’s wingman, and wanted to be “the guy” in another town, hence asking for a trade request. While the public assumed their relationship was all but over, especially after Stephen A. Smith reported that Lebron wanted to beat Kyrie’s ass when he saw him, it turns out that not might be the case afterall.

Just the other day, multiple sources reported that Kyrie & Lebron were together in the same room in Florida, and all was civil.

“Apparently these guys were in the same room and here’s the deal. I don’t know if there’s a thawing out process. All I do know is LeBron didn’t punch Kyrie the way Stephen A thought he would. I can report that. As for what they talked about or discussed…it was very cool. They didn’t get into any heated discussions.”

However, following all the madness that has been surrounding Kyrie this Summer, it looks like he needed a change… physically. Earlier this week, photos surfaced online of the Cave point guard with a shaved beard, and fans can’t help but roast the baby-face assassin.

Understanding it’s all in good fun, Kryie even addressed the situation, and said if it wasn’t him, he’d be firing jokes at that person as well, so get them out now. "Get the jokes out now," he says. "If this was anybody else, I would be firing jokes at them."

The reason for Kyrie’s new look is unknown, but according to him it’ll only be for 22 days and that he'll soon share pictures of him in “prosthetics." Strong guess is a commercial is in the works, but time will only tell.
