Kyrie Irving Threatened to Sit Out if Cavs Didn't Comply

Detroit Pistons Cleveland Cavaliers Kyrie Irving Threatened to Sit Out if Cavs Didn't Comply

Obviously, the notion that Irving referenced "a HIPAA violation" is amusing, but his overall point was clear in that he pushed back on the report.

Cleveland.com reported Thursday that Irving used the threat of surgery to force his request to be traded.

The Cavaliers chose to trade Irving, upsetting LeBron James.

Kyrie Irving needs to undergo minor knee surgery as a follow-up to the procedure he underwent during the 2015 Finals to fix his broken kneecap.

Gilbert didn't have to honor the request, though, as Irving had two years left on his contract.

Vardon reports that LeBron James was pretty miffed that Cleveland didn't call Irving's bluff, instead shipping the guard to the Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and the 2018 Brooklyn first round pick. He's averaging 24.5 points and 5.0 assists while shooting a career-best.477 from the field. I'm just ready to move on.

Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving denied a report that he threatened to undergo knee surgery this summer if the Cleveland Cavaliers had declined to trade him. When Gilbert initially said no, Irving threatened to have knee surgery, which would cause him to miss time.

While the Cavs may not regret trading Irving, and they seem to have had little choice but to do so, it seems like Kyrie is the definite victor of the deal. The Cavaliers are a mess right now, both on the court and off. Irving may have just wanted to play basketball where the team's agenda was the priority.

With Kyrie leading the way as the No. 1 option, Boston now leads the East with a 35-14 record, while Cleveland sits at 27-13.
