The Cleveland Cavaliers are in one of their trademark mid-season slumps right now, and LeBron James isn’t happy about it. In fact, one of the more entertaining things that happened Thursday night was that James got extremely animated and started yelling at his teammates on the bench during a timeout in the blowout loss against the Toronto Raptors.
The video of James going off on his teammates went viral pretty quick.
And wouldn’t you know it, James’ old teammate Kyrie Irving seems to be enjoying the show.
This is both funny and not the least bit surprising. Irving obviously wasn’t happy playing with James in Cleveland, which is why he demanded a trade last summer. He ultimately got one when the Cavs shipped him to the Boston Celtics.
Interestingly enough, that trade has been nothing short of a godsend for Irving, who’s flourishing in Boston. The Celtics actually hold a 6.5-game lead over LeBron’s Cavs right now and are firmly atop the Eastern Conference heading into mid-January.
