IFWT_Josh Kyrie 1

He’s fed up & Kyrie Irving is speaking his mind!  First he went off at the media saying they have unfairly portrayed him this season.  He  took to Twitter to defend himself against reports that said he wants out of Cleveland.
He also ripped Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon over criticism (details below) — of course Josh heard about it and took to Instagram to respond.  Check it all out…

…Kyrie Irving laid out the Cleveland Browns’ Josh Gordon in response to comments the wideout made about the Cavs’ locker-room strife.

“Guys like Josh Gordon need to stay in his sport and mind his own business,” Irving said, per Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal. “Does he still play for the Browns? I’ll continue to root for the Browns, but in terms of this stuff here, what goes on in this locker room, he needs to stay out of it.”

Gordon obviously wasn’t shaken up by Irving’s salvo, writing via Instagram




The direct mention of Dion Waiters comes in response to the shooting guard’s dismissal of Gordon’s original comments on the contentious relationship between the Cavaliers guards. Per Lloyd, Waiters said:

“[He] can’t put words in my mouth. That’s his opinion. That’s what he thinks. I can’t stop a man from saying that. That’s what he thinks.”

Irving’s proverbial hit on Gordon comes as retaliation for the wideout’s take on the widely reported rift between Irving and teammate Dion Waiters.

Gordon, speaking in an ESPN interview (via Lloyd), said of the Cavs’ interpersonal strife: “I talked about it with Dion. He’s my neighbor in my building so we hang out all the time. I’m aware of the rift in the locker room. That’s just alpha males and supreme athletes trying to share the spotlight.”
