The Brooklyn Nets’ Kyrie Irving made another headline by requesting a trade before the Feb. 9 deadline. The NBA world was shocked after the star’s sudden change of heart.
The point guard has been busy this season due to his social media activities and anti-Semitic controversies. Despite widespread criticism from netizens, fans and authorities – almost everyone – the star delivered his best performance yet.
In those dangerous moments, some of the big stars still stood by Little Mountain, and Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James was one of them. As expected, following Kyrie’s trade request, he expressed his views through his tweet.
What did LeBron James tweet?
As we all know, when it comes to shocking and notable incidents, LeBron is just like the rest of us. Following Nets PG’s trade request, the 38-year-old sent out another mysterious tweet. Shortly after Irving’s news went viral, James posted with two emojis: 👀👑.

As the tweet suggests, the NBA world went nuts. James’ iconic cryptic message became a phenomenon created by the king himself.
What could LeBron James’ tweet mean?
There could be a whole lot of things LeBron wanted to point out, but the timing and his longstanding relationship with the 30-year-old Nets superstar mostly make sense. Does it mean Kyrie’s arrival at the Lakers? Most likely.
Kyrie Irving spent three years with the Cleveland Cavaliers after LeBron James’ arrival in 2014 until LeBron James’ departure in 2017. During that short stint, the Ankletakers won their only NBA championship, two All-Star medals and one All-Star Game MVP, and the USA Basketball Man-Athlete of the Year award.
After his Cavaliers stint, he went to Boston and Brooklyn, but it seems he never reached his peak. However, his performance has improved statistically significantly. In his 40 appearances this season, he averaged 27.1 points with 5.1 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game.
Perhaps the four-time NBA champion reminded everyone how much fun it was to watch these two play those games. We also think it also includes an invitation to the eight-time NBA All-Star to return to the Lakers.
What do you think of Lebron James’ cryptic tweet? Will Kyrie Irving really get back together with him? Let us know your predictions in the comments.
