LeBron James and Kyrie Irving hugged it out after Sunday’s game

Kyrie Irving LeBron James NBA All-Star Game Cleveland Cavaliers

Perhaps the alleged hatred between Kyrie Irving and LeBron James was just a tad overblown. We say this because after James’ Cleveland Cavaliers destroyed the Boston Celtics Sunday, 121-99, the two superstars hugged it out with smiles on their faces.

As we all know, Irving was itching to get away from James and demanded a trade last summer. The Cavaliers obliged, sending him to Boston, where he’s been establishing himself as a tremendous player away from the long shadow cast by James, and Boston is in first place to boot.

Now that more than a year has past, it appears any bad blood between the two stars is water under the bridge. Though, based on Irving’s comments about the All-Star Game selection process, this shouldn’t be all that surprising.
