Last Friday, the news about the cover athlete of NBA 2K18, Kyrie Irving requested to be traded from the Cavaliers has shocked the basketball world. It is reported that Irving no longer wants to play aside with LeBron James anymore and wants to be a larger focal point somewhere else. James was “blindsided and disappointed” by Irving’s decision.
Though winning a
championship and reaching three straight Finals, Irving always falls in James’
shadow, given James’ status as one of the most famous athletes alive, it was
impossible for Irving to ever get the same recognition.
Irving has submitted a list
of preferred destinations that includes the Spurs, Knicks, Heat, and
Timberwolves. Irving was hoping to be traded to Chicago to play
alongside Jimmy Butler before Butler was traded to Minnesota. So it’s
no surprise that Minnesota is now on the list. Click for more: https://www.mmogah.com/news/nba-2k17/kyrie-irving-request-to-be-traded-from-the-cavaliers
