Video: Kyrie Irving tells kids he won't leave Cleveland like LeBron James did

It's been three years since Ohio native LeBron James decided to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat. But many Cavs fans are still heartbroken over the whole ordeal. And rightfully so.

Now, the Cavaliers have another franchise player on their roster in the likes of Kyrie Irving, and as you might imagine, they are extremely protective of him.

During a recent community event, one young fan even went as far as directly asking Irving if he would leave Cleveland the same way James would, to which he wisely responded "no." I mean, what else is Irving going to say when being put on the spot like that?

Nonetheless, it really does appear like Irving won't be going anywhere anytime soon. He still has two more seasons remaining on his rookie contract and should be due for a five-year max contract in 2015 that would lock him up through 2020 if he agreed to the deal.
