CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Kyrie Irving may not have been traded (yet), but he has already done enough to make Cleveland angry.

A video posted on social media shows an Irving jersey go up in flames.

The point guard, who spent his first six years in a Cleveland jersey, is not going quietly. Since the reports have surfaced about Kyrie's demands for a trade from Cleveland, there have been several things that Kyrie has done which could be interpreted as passive-aggressive or subtle jabs at LeBron James and the Cavs.

Here's why you shouldn't burn Kyrie Irving's jersey: It's toxic

Most recently, he was caught on camera at a wedding, dancing and laughing with Steph Curry, who allegedly was mocking LeBron's selfie videos and workout regimens. Kyrie also shared a video recently of him singing "Coming Home" on his way back from an overseas trip. That song is the same one that the musician Skylar Grey sang at LeBron's "Welcome Home" rally in 2014.

Cleveland may or may not have been on the forefront of "jersey burning". In 2010, seemingly all of Cleveland burned LeBron's jersey when he left for Miami.
