CLEVELAND (AP) - Two of Cleveland’s biggest sports stars are going at it.

Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving and Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon exchanged barbs across all number of platforms over the weekend - TV, Twitter and newspaper.

Gordon fired the first verbal volley last week. The player who led the NFL with yards receiving last season went on ESPN and discussed a “rift” between Irving and Cavs guard Dion Waiters. Gordon and Waiters are neighbors in Cleveland.

Irving shot back, telling the Akron Beacon Journal, “Guys like Josh Gordon need to stay in his sport and mind his own business.” Gordon then tweeted on Sunday: “… think i touched a nerve.”

On top of his issues with Gordon, Irving has been upset with other media reports saying he wants to leave Cleveland.
