Kyrie Irving shocked the basketball world with news he wanted a trade out of Cleveland. Now, there’s an even more surprising twist – he discussed the decision with his pastor, who also talked to Justin Bieber before the megastar canceled his world tour.

Now, there’s an even more surprising twist – he discussed the decision with his pastor, who also talked to Justin Bieber before the megastar canceled his world tour.

A source told TMZ Sports that Irving’s pastor Carl Lentz had a lengthy conversation with Irving about his basketball career. While Lentz didn’t push Irving towards a decision, he instead offered a lending-ear to listen to the Cavs point guards grievances.

What is sort of crazy is Lentz connection to Bieber. More surprisingly, the Biebs reportedly canceled his world tour after discussing the situation with Lentz. While it’s unsurprising Bieber or Irving would seek solace from a spiritual leader in making huge career decisions, the fact they both sought out the help of Lentz and made the announcement in the same week is newsworthy. Especially, as TMZ notes, because the trio hung out at an arcade last week.

It’s hard to blame Irving or Bieber for their recent actions. Sometimes you need a change of scenery or a break from everything. However, Cavs fans and Beliebers probably aren’t huge fans of Lentz, despite his help to their idols.
