Kyrie Irving’s demands to be traded have played into rumors that LeBron James and Kyrie don’t get along. Now a new video of Steph Curry dancing and doing the #LeBronJamesChallenge, showing Kyrie cracking up in the background, has added fuel to that fire. As reported by Yahoo, the below video shows Curry’s version of LeBron’s dance, which LeBron did when he rapped with Tee Grizzly’s “First Day Out” back in June.
Steph and Kyrie attended the wedding of Harrison Barnes, and Curry did his best LeBron impression by dancing, pumping his fist, mean mugging, and pretending to bench press the air. Kyrie can be seen cracking up in the background at Curry’s mocking of LeBron, and folks are calling it proof positive that Irving laughed so hard at someone on the opposing team mocking James because they assume Irving is done with LeBron. As reported by USA Today, basketball fans can’t assume that just because Curry jumped in to perform his best impression of LeBron during his own #LeBronJamesChallenge means that the rumors of a fractured relationship between LeBron and “Uncle Drew” are true.
However, folks on social media think that it doesn’t necessarily look like a good thing for Irving to laugh so hard at Curry impersonating LeBron.
Curry, however, likely would not find it a bad thing if Irving left the Cavaliers, according to basketball experts.
According to CBS Sports, LeBron’s workout video from June 15, as seen below, received plenty of ribbing from folks who found James’ moves and facial expressions funny. LeBron posted the video not long after the Cavs lost the Finals. As witnessed by the hashtags in the video, James wrote that he heard people praying on his downfall, but wrote that he couldn’t stop and wouldn’t stop striving for greatness.
Curry and Kyrie hugged it out, as seen below, in the wake of Game 5 of the NBA Finals in Oakland, California, on Monday, June 12, when the Warriors won the NBA championship.
In the top photo above, LeBron received congratulations from Kyrie after scoring in the first half of Game 5 of the NBA Finals that same day.
More videos from that wedding are appearing online, such as the one below.
