NBA Rumors: Kyrie Irving says Josh Gordon needs to mind his own business


It appears as if Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving is on a warpath.

Just days after unleashing a rant on Twitter about a report suggesting he didn’t want to play with the Cavaliers organization, Irving is again on the offensive, this time suggesting Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon keep his mouth shut.

Gordon, who lives in the same apartment building as Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters, said he was told of the locker room riff by Waiters and suggested it was just alpha males being alpha males.

That didn’t sit well with Irving though, who essentially told Gordon he needs to stay in his own lane.

Guys like Josh Gordon need to stay in his sport and mind his own business. Does he still play for the Browns? I’ll continue to root for the Browns, but in terms of this stuff here, what goes on in this locker room, he needs to stay out of it.

I’m not really sure Gordon needed to involve himself in the situation, but I don’t think he said anything negative outside of suggesting there was a riff.

    I wish guys like Irving would just get out of town. I love his play on the court, but if he doesn’t want to be here then good riddance. And yes Kyrie, Josh does play FOR Cleveland. The question is …DO YOU?
    This is Browns country.

    Doug PLEASE !!!!!! send him to the Lakers, we will just learn to put up with his off court rants. We can send you say Gasol on a sign n trade along with say Nash.

    Sounds like Kyrie is on the war path again!! He needs to shut his mouth and learn to play defense and be a leader and play team ball!! Tell Marty Susman we’ll give you Irving and TT for Gasol and this years and next years first round picks!!
