Although LeBron and Irwin are no longer teammates, the grievances between the two continue, which makes some former Cavaliers teammates feel sad.
Former Cavaliers player and 2016 championship team member Shumpert recently accepted an interview. He said that he was sad to see many people talking about the conflict between LeBron and Irving.
"People always think that there is a contradiction between the two of them, and they are attacking each other, which is sad. In fact, some things are not like the outside world said. If they don't like each other, they can't play in a team."
He stood up to defend LeBron’s decision to leave the Cavaliers, “No matter what happens, every decision LeBron makes is right, and maybe sometimes wrong, but in his heart, he thinks it is right. And Irving It was a wrong decision to leave the Cavaliers on purpose."
Earlier, Irwin stated in an interview that every team he played for was the best choice at a critical moment, and now Durant makes him feel for the first time that someone can do the same thing. This is interpreted by many people as Irving attacking LeBron, but in Shumpert's view, Irving's saying this is just an expression of trust in Durant and has no other meaning.
Irving and LeBron have been teammates for three years (2014-17) and won the championship together, but at the same time they left a lot of right and wrong, which is embarrassing.
