Back in the day, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving formed one of the mightiest duos in the league. During their time together in Cleveland, they led the Cavaliers to their first ever NBA championship.
However, their careers have taken a different direction when Kyrie decided to part ways. While The King eventually won another ring in Los Angeles, Irving struggled to challenge for the title.
This offseason, the possibility of Irving joining LeBron’s Lakers is drawing a lot of speculation since Kyrie’s future with the Nets looks uncertain. If you ask Shannon Sharpe, he would love to see them together on the floor again.
Shannon Sharpe suggests LeBron James, Kyrie Irving should reunite next season
“Yea, the Lakers should try, but with what? What assets you got other than LeBron and AD? You take Russ? You want Russ? LeBron is a therapist. Think about what he got Kyrie to do, something Kyrie hadn’t been able to do with any other star. … The chemistry that he and LeBron had. We saw what they did together. Went to three NBA Finals, won one,” Sharpe said, via Fadeaway World.
No matter how controversial Irving might be, he would certainly be a massive addition for LeBron and the Lakers. However, this possibility will depend on what the Nets ultimately decide to do with him.
