Tensions between James and Irving appeared to be escalating over the summer. Irving wanted out of Cleveland so he could take on a larger role away from James, according to ESPN.com. Then reports surfaced that James leaked Irving's trade rumors. Irving also unfollowed James on Instagram.
And yet LeBron appears to be extending an olive branch now that Irving has left the building.
