Cavaliers point guard and 2013 NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving is going to be a free agent next summer and, well, the last time Cleveland's best player was a free agent it didn't work out so well for the organization.
And while the 2013-14 season has even started yet, some fans are already worried about Irving bolting Cleveland just as LeBron James did in 2010. One young boy decided to confront Irving head on and get an answer from the 21-year-old rising star about his intentions.
Now that's how you ask a question. That young man may have a future in journalism.
As it turns out, this isn't the first time Irving has been asked about his future. Over the summer there was a rumor circulating that Irving was thinking about leaving Cleveland. Irving quickly shot that down with this tweet:
I wish I knew "someone in the know" for all my facts, maybe I would go into journalism as well!!

“I’m a Cavalier right now,” Irving said at the USA Basketball mini-camp. “I’m happy to be a Cavalier. I kind of had a sarcastic approach to it from what was said, because it was probably just a rumor started. I don’t think he knows anybody in my camp, and I don’t know who the guy is. But that type of stuff I don’t even pay attention to. Right now I’m a Cleveland Cavalier and I’m happy to be here."
