The basketball social media world reacts to Kyrie Irving's request to be traded from the Cavaliers.
The basketball world was shook when ESPN's Brian Windhorst reported that Kyrie Irving has requested to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Kevin Love responded to a tweet with the following, which appears to be a thinly veiled reference to Irving's telling Sports Illustrated that the Cavs are in a "peculiar" place.
Here are some of the best reactions from the rest of basketball Twitter.
Just gonna leave this here ... Cavs with Kyrie Irving ON, LeBron James OFF last season: -120 in 635 minutes.— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) July 21, 2017
The Knicks should do whatever takes legal or illegal to pull off a Porzingis/Kyrie foundation - its too bad Suge Knight isn't their new GM.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) July 21, 2017
Maybe Kyrie wants to be traded to the alternate universe where the Earth is round— Jeremy Woo (@JeremyWoo) July 21, 2017
However, we still haven't seen the one reaction we're all waiting for: LeBron's.
