Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has a long-standing history with Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving. Irving and LeBron were teammates on the Cleveland Cavaliers when Kyrie was the hero of the 2016 NBA Finals after hitting a game winning 3-pointer in Game 7 against the Golden State Warriors. NBA insider Marc Stein reveals that Kyrie and LeBron have already had preliminary discussions about a reunion on the Lakers.
“There are credible rumblings in circulation that Irving, for starters, has indeed had some recent contact with Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, his former Cleveland teammate, to presumably discuss a potential reunion in Hollywood,” Stein writes per his Substack account.
“I’m told it would be a stretch, though, to suggest that the Lakers are currently pursuing Irving.”
