The "feud" between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving is shrouded in mystery with media reports and veiled responses clouding the truth.
But James' former Cavs teammate Drew Gooden has a solution, telling TMZ that either Irving needs to be traded or the two superstars need to throw down in a fight.
"That's the only way," Gooden said.
Gooden cited the Cleveland's addition of Derrick Rose as the reason for Irving's unrest, although reports of Irving's trade request came out days before Rose committed to sign with Cleveland.
"I think Kyrie hot cause they went and got Derrick Rose without his consent," Gooden said. "That might have got Kyrie a little hot."
Gooden, 35, averaged 11 points, 7.1 rebounds and 25.5 minutes per game over his 14-year NBA career, which ended after playing 30 games for Washington in the 2015-16 season.
