The Cleveland Cavaliers were blown out by the Toronto Raptors on Thursday much to the chagrin of LeBron James who was seen yelling at his teammates on the sidelines after allowing an easy dunk on defense.

This seem to make LeBron’s former teammate Kyrie Irving pretty happy watching LeBron lose his mind on the sidelines because he liked this video of Cavs superstar throwing a tantrum on the sidelines during tonight’s game.

Last week it was revealed that Kyrie was angry at LeBron and his camp for trying to trade him away from Cleveland for Paul George in the offseason.
In mid-June, shortly before Griffin left, team and league sources confirm, the Cavs explored a three-way deal with Phoenix and Indiana that would have shipped Irving and Frye to the Suns and brought Eric Bledsoe and Paul George to Cleveland. The Suns resisted, unwilling to part with their No. 4 pick, which they planned to use to draft Josh Jackson.
No formal offer was made by any of the teams, but news of this potential transaction stung Irving, who, sources close to him say, became convinced that LeBron’s camp, which also represents Bledsoe, orchestrated the trade talks.
Team and league sources refute that, saying that it was Griffin who initiated the trade talks with Phoenix. Griffin, who is close with Irving, sensed both his unhappiness and his restlessness and was preparing for the possibility that Irving would request a trade. But once Griffin was no longer employed by the team, the conversations stalled. Cleveland then engaged in talks with Indiana and Denver, according to league sources.
Kyrie has every reason to be petty.
