Although LeBron’s camp denied the report, Sheridan doubled down by sending a follow up tweet confirming his scoop. FS1 NBA Insider Chris Broussard, who also has sources close to James, joined The Herd today to discuss the rumor, and his conversations with LeBron James inner circle, who continue to deny that LeBron has made a definitive decision.
Broussard also went behind the scenes of the Kyrie Irving drama, and the specific events that led to his requesting a trade out of Cleveland.
Watch Broussard break down the LeBron and Kyrie drama.
