CLOSE

Many have been wondering would really lead to Kyrie Irving demanding a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers. A conspiracy theory with real weight to it involves the influence a pastor Kyrie and Justin Bieber are both cool with. 

Apparently, Kyrie has been talking to the same pastor thought to have convinced the Biebs to recently cancel his Purpose tour.

Reports TMZ Sports:

Church sources tell us Kyrie, who’s been an active member for a long time, met with Lentz earlier this month about his desires to step out of LeBron James’ shadow. We’re told Lentz didn’t tell Kyrie to “leave Cleveland” — instead he listened to Kyrie’s concerns, and encouraged him to make the decision he felt was best.

There’s a reason it sounds so similar to Justin’s Purpose tour shocker — Bieber, Lentz and Irving all hung out together in L.A. just over a week ago. You could say they were on Kyrie’s turf … playing pop-a-shot at Dave & Buster’s.

We’re told Kyrie and Carl have been close for years, but Justin and the NBA star are more like acquaintances.

NBA fans have been baffled as to why Kyrie would want to leave a team that’s been to the NBA Finals 3 years straight. Now we know — it’s God-approved.

Hey, sometimes you gotta ask, WWJD?

As for Irving, he’s just getting back from touring Asia with Nike Basketball.

LOVE these two legends…and speaking of love…A wise man named Paul once said…"Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always “me first,” doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others grovel, takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end. Love never dies." If somebody says they "love you" but you don't SEE THESE THINGS? Gaurd your heart! If you have experienced love like this? Best thing you can ever do, is share it w/ as many people as you can… another wise man named Christopher Wallace said "spread love, it's the Brooklyn way.." May it be OUR way, day by day.. #occupyallstreets #aviatorsmountup #longerthetrafficlongerthecaption

Excited to be speaking to our Kingdom Builders tonight @hillsongnyc… Some of the most consistent and faithful people I have ever been around! It takes many, to continue to promote the available grace of God, which is no respecter of persons. That's the tricky thing about life..We desperately want to classify people in our minds. The picture above, demonstrates this well. Because these individuals are "well known", immediately it will elicit reactions..mostly harsh, because it's easier/lazy to classify that which you can't fully understand, than to pursue depth and reasoning. Projecting insecurity and bad motives is a full time job for too many people..If they were not "well known"? Much more palatable for people! Why? Because we classify that as well and are not threatened by things that fit neatly into our ready made classification prism. My point? We can't dispense grace or love how WE WANT. We must as GOD SAYS! I for one, am grateful for that. Don't deserve an ounce of the ocean of grace God has given me…Somebody once told me "humility is the great mediator. It will always be the shortest distance between you and another human being." Should make it really easy for all of us who claim to follow Jesus, to show grace and love exactly how we were given it: freely and quickly, regardless of our SHARED, INHERENT "class". Sinners… grace?? It changes the story..Have a great Thursday! #occupyallstreets #weezyandbeezy #throwback #whatatimetobealive #idontwritebooks #justlongcaptions #feelsright
