LeBron James, Kyrie Irving deny, mock report of ‘exchange of words’


DENVER — denied and openly that the two had an “exchange of words” in the locker roce attacker Andros Townsend has no doubts about the potential of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.Wan-Bissaka is one tipped for a bright future with England.Townsend told The Sun: “I remember his first three games for the club last season were against Tottenham, om after the Cavs’ loss to the Utah Jazz earlier this week.

“Those reports aren’t true.,” James said at shootaround Friday before the Cavs’ game against the Nuggets. “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 on the other hand mocked the report, saying that there was a dispute … over Irving’s decision to watch “Family Guy” instead of the James-produced StarzUnited.But what everyone has to understand is that January is a shocking window to get a striker in, for a few reasons. One, is any available? Secondly, if they are available, the price is at a premium. And finally, some clubs won’t even accept a pre show “Survivor’s Remorse.” 

“Aw man, we’re on opposite ends (of the court after shootaround), so that means we hate each other,” Irving deadpanned. “It was over ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ and ‘Family Guy.’ That’s what it was about. Obviously he’s going to feel strongly about ‘Survivor’s Remorse.’ It’s his show! But I love ‘Family Guy.’ Heated exchange, words were said, no blows this time, but awesome for our team.” 

Asked if the two could repair this “deep rift,” Irving shook his head dramatically and said “I hope so.” 

The at the same time that Irving has gone six quarters without an assist. It was also after James had said following Irving’s 34-point, zero assist performance in a loss to the Jazz that “scoring-wise,” Irving had been great, but urging his point guard to do more to distribute the ball.  per game, (passes that lead to a scoring opportunity) via the ‘s new tracking data.

“We’re two dynamic playeri Emery before taking the Spurs job.Mourinho, 56, was reported to have met Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi earlier this month as Emery’s position began to come under threat.”When it was written that I was in a meeting with Mr Sanllehi, it was,” James said of his longtime friend and new point guard, “and it’s coming along well I believe. But it’s going to continue to get better and better. It’s just four games. It’s our first time playing together. Every game is going to be a learning experience for both of us.” 

The Cavs (1-3) are in Denver to take on the similarly struggling Nuggets (1-3). James told reporters that he’s not ready to describe the team as “frustrated.”

“I wouldn’t say so. A sense of frustration when you lose, but you learn from that,” James said. “You go over the film and get better the next day. You approach today like it’s its own. So, we feel good about our opportunity to be better today.” 

Irving did say the team needed to play with “urgency,” but that that was nothing new for this team. 

“We need a sense of urgency every single day. We have a target on our back, and we just have to be the hunter instead of the hunted every single day. We have to come out and hit people in the mouth.”

James and Irving hope to resolve their discord, TV-related or otherwise, Friday night in Denver.
