LeBron James and Kyrie Irving are no longer on the same team with one another. And we don’t just mean on the basketball court. The pair, reportedly, have differing opinions on the NBA’s restart, with many sources alleging that Irving is leading the charge to stop the resumption of play due to a myriad of concerns.
James, on the other hand, does not believe that this is the best way to go about matters. One of the major points of contention here from Irving and others is social activism, with the Brooklyn Nets star not so sure that he and others can make the same sort impact while being essentially stuck in Orlando. Irving was said to have headed up a conference call on Friday with a number of players, and he must have done a good job because two of LeBron’s current teammates- Avery Bradley and Dwight Howard- are said to be considering a boycott if play does resume. Clearly, there is still much work to be done by the NBA before a ball is able to be tipped off.
