Tyron Lue, who is widely regarded for ushering a golden era in Cleveland, opened up about the relationship shared between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving back when they played together in 2016. In an interview with Joe Vardon of The Athletic, Tyron Lue said, “It wasn’t a bad relationship though. LeBron really did a good job of taking him under his wing and just, Kyrie was young. A young superstar. LeBron taught him how to be a professional, how to carry yourself, take care of your body, things like that. Because Kyrie always had all the talent. I always said Kyrie never had an offensive weakness. I thought they did a great job together. I think Kyrie winning a championship and us going to three straight finals and now you want to take that chance or opportunity to have your own team and see what it’s like to carry a young team or franchise — and there’s nothing wrong with that. We all want to grow.”
