LeBron James put up an interesting tweet as his former teammate Kyrie Irving requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets.
Kyrie Irving has reportedly handed in a trade request at the Brooklyn Nets. The star guard who was recently named as a starter in the 2023 NBA All-star game has reportedly expressed his decision to leave for greener pastures, after Shams Charania of The Athletic recently reported that the guard has informed the team that he wants to be moved or will leave in free agency.
Despite all the off-the-court drama this year, Irving has been an elite talent on the court. He was recently named an All-Star starter after averaging 27.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.3 assists across his first 40 games. The potential trade will break up Irving’s one-two with Kevin Durant, as before Durant was sidelined with injury, he and Irving carried Brooklyn to a top spot in the Eastern Conference.
However, as it turns out, Irving has been rumoured to reunite with another star that he is known to have a connection with on the court, as his old teammate posted a very speculative tweet.
Who posted a speculative tweet about Kyrie Irving reportedly joining the Los Angeles Lakers?
Within hours of his supposed trade request, Kyrie Irving was linked with a switch to the West as it was reported that he wants to move to the Los Angeles Lakers.
A possible trade to the Los Angeles Lakers would mean that Kyrie Irving would reunite with his friend and former teammate LeBron James, with whom he won the NBA Championship at the memorable 2016 Finals. While the basketball community shared their excitement at the thoughts of the reunion, LeBron also weighed in on the hype as he posted a very speculative tweet.
In the tweet, LeBron kept it very subliminal as he only went with two emojis – the eye emoji and the crown emoji – sending his fans into speculation on if the tweet refers to Kyrie Irving’s trade situation. One thing is for sure, the Lakers will love to have reinforcements of Irving’s stature to qualify for the Playoffs.
