Young Cavaliers Fan Asks Kyrie Irving if He Will Leave Team Like LeBron James (Video)


A young Cleveland Cavaliers fan was not afraid to give superstar point guard Kyrie Irving a difficult question about his future on Wednesday.

The boy asked Irving “are you going to leave us like LeBron [James] left us?” After acknowledging that it was a good question, Irving gave the response that everyone in attendance wanted to hear.

“Um, no, I won’t leave, I’m not leaving,” he said.

Of course, the fan is referring to James’ embarrassing exit from Cleveland after the 2009-10 season that was highlighted by an ESPN program named “The Decision” in which he announced his free-agent destination to a national television audience.

Since leaving the Cavs, James has won two NBA championships with the Miami Heat alongside superstar teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The four-time NBA MVP can become a free agent in the summer of 2014 if he exercises the early-termination option in his contract.

There’s actually some speculation that he could return to Cleveland.
