Cavaliers Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters took the unusual step of addressing the media together on Monday in response to an ESPN interview in which Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon mentioned a rift in the Cavs locker room and the resultant fallout from that interview the past few days.

Gordon and Waiters are neighbors. In a March 27 interview on First Take, Gordon said, “I’m aware of the rift in the locker room. That’s just alpha males and supreme athletes trying to share the spotlight.”

How would Irving describe his relationship with Waiters?

“Honestly, off the court and on the court, we’re the best of friends,” he said. “So when we come on the court, we’re just going to play basketball like we’ve been doing the past few games and our focus is on winning right now.”
