Speaking publicly for the first time since Kyrie Irving’s trade request, LeBron James on Monday said he went through a range of emotions but ultimately understood Irving’s request.

“I tried to do whatever I could do to help the kid out and so he could be the best player he could be,” James said at the Cleveland Cavaliers’ media day. “I tried to give him everything, give him as much of my DNA as I could. As I said throughout [last] season, at some point when he was ready to take over the keys, I was ready to give them to him.”
