Kryie Irving Sits Down With ESPN's First Take, Exquisitely Roasts Max Kellerman

So when Kyrie Irving does interviews - even months removed from the initial reports of his trade requests to get out of Cleveland - the topic is naturally a bit of a sticking point with those asking questions.

LeBron James has an uncanny ability to appear on social media when other things in the media world happen that are tangentially related to him.

When asked to elaborate, Irving responded with "Why would I have to?"

"I just wanted to be in an environment where I felt like I could be taught every single day and have that demand from my coaching staff and have that demand from a franchise, that would propel me to exceed in my potential, to see how far I could go", Irving said.

The newest member of the Boston Celtics said he believes he can win without the King.

Needless to say, the relationship between Irving and James has been strained since the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

And while Irving hasn't seemed to have had much recent interaction with James, he won't have to wait long for his next encounter with his former teammate. "You think about how the journey transcended my career, from starting the first three years, that was a picture in itself, and then the last three years".

"Can't put a price on happiness and truth", Irving said, pointing out that he waived his $5.8 million trade kicker. I'm not here to go at any particular person nor the organization, because I have nothing but love for Cleveland. And there is no looking back from that standpoint. On First Take, Irving was asked if he informed James of his desire to be traded before it became public. There's no time to figure out how to save someone's feelings when ultimately you have to be selfish in that in figuring out what you want to do. "And that was the only intent I had in all of this".

Kyrie Irving broke his silence on ESPN's "First Take" about why it was time to move on from the Cavs.
