Irving starred at Duke for one season before heading to the NBA. He was the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft and has played his entire pro career in Cleveland. The Cavaliers have played in three straight NBA Finals, winning in 2016 against the Golden State Warriors.
But the star point guard has wanted out this offseason, requesting to be traded. Interestingly, one of the teams that has been linked to Irving has been the Miami Heat.
As for Wednesday, Irving was just across town, playing and training at the U.
