Did LeBron James leak Kyrie Irving's trade request?

According to Steven A. Smith, Kyrie Irving believes LeBron James leaked his trade request to the public. LeBron James can get emotional sometimes, and it would not be a huge surprise to learn LeBron was salty about the request and leaked it to the media in frustration. However, James has always had his teammate's back, and his track record would indicate that he'd never do something like that. What do you think? 🏀

Although basketball is a business, personal feelings get in the way. Kyrie Irving's trade request could have genuinely surprised James, who teamed up with Irving to reach three consecutive NBA Finals. 

We all know the level of salt LeBron James can dish when things don't go his way, as evidenced by his press conference after he lost in the 2011 NBA Finals against the Dallas Mavericks. LeBron running to the press would not be the least bit surprising.

LeBron James has been called a lot of things, but he's never been called a bad teammate. No matter what happens, if you're on James' team, he has your back. 

He wouldn't leak anything to the press if he knew it could hurt Kyrie Irving. He wouldn't screw a teammate like that, even though he might not be a teammate for long. People like to create this narrative where Irving and James are at each other's throats, pitting them against each other to create more conflict. 

Truth is, someone else probably leaked the information.
