Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon posted a picture to his Instagram account on Sunday night in response to comments Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving made prior to the Cavaliers’ game against the Hawks on Friday.
The picture was a screenshot of a Bleacher Report post describing Gordon’s comments and Irving’s reply.
The fracas reportedly started with an ESPN apperance by Gordon last week. Gordon spoke of a rift between Irving and backcourt mate Dion Waiters.
"I talked about it with Dion. He’s my neighbor in my building so we hang out all the time," Gordon said. "I’m aware of the rift in the locker room. That’s just alpha males and supreme athletes trying to share the spotlight."
Irving either heard, or heard about those comments and fired back before the game against Atlanta.
"Guys like Josh Gordon need to stay in his sport and mind his own business," Irving told Lloyd prior to shootaround Friday morning. "Does he still play for the Browns? I’ll continue to root for the Browns, but in terms of this stuff here, what goes on in this locker room, he needs to stay out of it."
After Gordon posted the screenshot to his Instagarm account, he also tweeted it with a the comment "Smh think I touched a nerve lmao". His teammate Greg Little also chimed in.
