In the most recent installment of this Kyrie saga, the star point guard took to Instagram, where he made a pretty telling statement. It wasn't an angry post or a subtle jab with a video. Rather, it was an unfollow.
That's right, Kyrie Irving unfollowed LeBron James on Instagram, and nobody knows how to react. Should we be expecting a trade? Was it some sort of hack? Are they just trolling us in an epic fashion? For now, none of those questions can be answered. All we can assume at the moment is that the unfollow signals the end of a long relationship.
Teammates, friends, almost brothers. The relationship between Kyrie Irving and LeBron James was never in doubt until the last week or so. Yet, this latest move by Kyrie Irving could be the move that ends it all.
It's only a simple unfollow. But what it could symbolize shouldn't be ignored. Irving and LeBron's relationship may have hit a new low today, and there could be no going back.
