The speculation has already started around the country, and most importantly, Cleveland, in regards to the future of point guard Kyrie Irving.
Irving has the goods to be a star, but many in the Cleveland community who were a witness to LeBron James taking his talents to South Beach don’t want to go through that hurt again with Irving.
Irving is aware that people have concerns about whether he’ll be a Cav long term, and he took to Twitter to assure fans he has no intentions of leaving the Cavs amid rumors from “someone in the know,” that Irving in fact wants out of Cleveland.
I wish I knew "someone in the know" for all my facts, maybe I would go into journalism as well!!

“I’m a Cavalier right now,” Irving said. “I’m happy to be a Cavalier. I kind of had a sarcastic approach to it from what was said, because it was probably just a rumor started. I don’t think he knows anybody in my camp, and I don’t know who the guy is. But that type of stuff I don’t even pay attention to. Right now I’m a Cleveland Cavalier and I’m happy to be here.”
“I’m looking forward to it,” Irving said. “Especially seeing [number one overall draft pick Anthony Bennett] play, and getting to see [Andrew Bynum] play when he’s healthy. I’m really excited about these pieces.”
