Kyrie Irving and LeBron James had an infamously bad breakup this summer. The Cavs points guard requested a trade, and got one in August to Ivan Rodriguez Womens Jersey the Boston Celtics. A lot of dominoes went down for Irving to get to that point.
The move was shocking, as Irving had won a championship with the team two years earlier, and had been to three consecutive NBA Finals. That’s about as good as it gets from a basketball standpoint.
The problem seemed to loom from a mental standpoint though, especially because LeBron James owned the spotlight. Little did anyone know at the time that may have been Irving’s biggest issue.
I think that statement is self explanatory, Irving said, because it’s pretty direct in terms of what my intent is, and that’s to be happy and be with a group of individuals that I can grow with.
It’s exciting to be on the East Coast, I will tell you that, Irving said in an interview with ESPN’s Marc Spears. It’s fast-paced. There are a lot of different cultures. You get it all. I was talking to my best friend the other day. It is really a major city coming from Cleveland where it is the Midwest. The culture is different. Then you move to East Coast, to Boston, it’s a real, live ongoing, thriving city, consistently ongoing. It doesn’t matter what hour throughout the night.
You go in Cleveland and it would be at night and there were things going on. You could see it was a vast difference of what Cleveland is and what Boston is. But Boston is one of those cities 锟斤拷 I’m driving in and I’m like, ‘OK, I’m really in a real, live sports city and a great city.’

Kennedy has clearly been frustrated this season, describing his team as a disaster after a loss to Illinois State in December. Only Vanderbilt has a worse record in SEC play than the Rebels at the moment.
It has become readily apparent to me that my continued presence as the head coach is proving detrimental to these players finishing the season in a fashion that is representative of The Standard for this program that has been clearly established and maintained for over a decade; therefore, I believe that it is in everyone’s best interest that I exit my role as head coach effective immediately. We all know that clean breaks are always best, and I should have realized this last Monday. My apologies.
Kennedy coached one season at Cincinnati before taking the Ole Miss job in 2006, electing to take on a difficult gig in his home state after assistant stints with the likes of current South Carolina head coach Frank Martin under Bob Huggins.
