Windhorst: Kyrie Irving 'Has Had Discussions' About Joining LeBron James, Lakers

  • After finding out it’s not so easy to win a championship on his own, Kyrie Irving may look to partner up with LeBron James once again.
  • On the Hoop Collective podcast, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst stated the “Possibility” of Irving and James playing for the Los Angeles Lakers has been talked about.
  • Irving averaged 20.4 points per game on 35.2 percent shooting in the series.
  • If Irving opts out of his deal with the Celtics, the Lakers have come up as a potential landing spot.
  • ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said on his radio show last month that Irving will take an interview with Los Angeles’ front office this offseason.
  • The Lakers are looking for another star player to pair with James after a disappointing 37-45 record last season.
  • Irving has a built-in rapport with the four-time NBA MVP that wouldn’t require any adjustment period for either player if they decide to get the band back together.
