After the Celtics picked up their 7th straight win in London yesterday vs. the 76ers, the Toronto Raptors hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers. Going into that game, the Cavs were losers in 6 of their last 9 games. Last night’s game only added to that total, as the Raptors wiped the floor with the Cavs 133-99.
During the first half, LeBron James was caught on camera freaking out at damn near every single person on the Cavs bench, coaches included:

Obviously, he has every right to be pissed off. For the most part, the Cavs have been pretty disapointing this season with the loss of Kyrie Irving. IT is back, but he hasn’t proved to be himself yet, and Jae Crowder also has looked incredibly off. 26-15 and 3rd in the East is not where everyone expected them to be at this point.
Anyways, as that video started to gain traction across social media, someone discovered this Instagram post. If you look close enough, you’ll notice a pretty interesting like on it:

In the ULTIMATE troll job, Kyrie Irving liked a video of LeBron James chewing out his teammates.
So why is this so funny? It’s quite simple: this is the EXACT reason Kyrie wanted out of Cleveland in the first place! You think he wanted to deal with that big baby running up and down the sidelines yelling at him? Hell. No. Kyrie wanted no part of that control freak in Ohio, and now that he’s on the outside looking in, he probably finds it hilarious. I sure would.
Kyrie has been taking subtle jabs at the Cavs all season, but this tops them all without a doubt. What an absolutely menical thing to do to try and get inside of LeBron’s head. I LOVE it.
