Watch: LeBron James' great attempt to distract Kyrie Irving while he's on air

Published Add your comment

The mood around the Cleveland Cavaliers has completely changed in 12 months. In 2015, the franchise was preparing for a new campaign after losing 4-2 in the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors.

They had a point to prove; the general feeling was that they were under strengthed without Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, and believed they still had what it took to overcome the Warriors.

As for LeBron, he was coming off a second consecutive Finals loss - taking his record to 2-4 - and there were serious questions being asked about his legacy as one of the greatest of all time.


However, fast forward a year; the Cavs showed they could overcome the Warriors and LeBron has established himself as one of the true greats.

After winning Cleveland's first title, there is a relaxed feeling around the Quickens Loans Arena as pre-season kicks into gear.

The champions faced the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night with Kyrie Irving sitting out the game as part of his post-Olympic Games plan.

While the point guard, who produced the iconic moment of their finals triumph, spoke to the media, he was holding back laughter as LeBron attempted to distract him. Dancing along to Drake's 'One Dance', the 'King' drew a laugh from his teammate watching on.
