LeBron, Kyrie Refute Reports of Heated Exchange

Reports of a less-than-pleasant exchange between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving are “very false,” according to James.

ESPN and Cleveland.com both reported Thursday that James and Irving got into it after a loss at Portland earlier this week. But both James and Irving strongly denied those reports Friday.

“Those reports are untrue,” James said. “We have not had a verbal exchange. But I understand that negativity sells. No one wants to hear a good story. Those reports are not true. They’re very false.”

Irving jokingly said he and James did indeed argue — but strictly over their favorite television programs. Irving said he contended the show “Family Guy” is better than “Survivor’s Remorse,” a new show on which James is an executive producer.

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dwyane Wade approached coach Tyronn Lue over the weekend and requested to come off the bench for the defending Eastern Conference champions, returning JR Smith to the starting shooting guard role he occupied for most of the past three seasons.

“I just decided, earlier than later, just to get to the unit where I’d be more comfortable in and can probably be better with this team in that lineup,” Wade said after practice Monday. “Why wait? Three games in, why wait? Wanted to get in there with those guys.”
