The 2022 NBA rumor mill could help LeBron James reunite with his former championship teammate; Kyrie Irving as the Los Angeles Lakers is keen to assert itself in their favor by bringing in the most elite players alongside the king. Likewise, the Crimson and Gold Army want to trade Kyrie Irving, which significantly increases their chances of scoring.
While discussing it on the latest episode of Undisputed, sports media personality Skip Bayless decided to vouch for LeBron James’ reunion with Kyrie Irving against the odds, as he thinks the move could be great for the “theatre.” Why are LeBron James, Lakers trying so hard to acquire Kyrie? In fact, it was the first time since 2006 that the 37-year-old veteran missed the playoffs the previous season.

For those who missed the set episode, Bayless said Irving is 10 times better than Lakers guard Russell Westbrook. He also stated that James would be best suited to handle Uncle Drew’s antics.
“I want to see Kyrie and LeBron James reunited” said Bayless. “I think it would be the story of the year. I think it would be big theatre. I think Kyrie Irving will be at his best with LeBron… It would be great theater to watch these two try to rediscover what they had over those three years. I think right now Kyrie Irving is 10 times the size of the player Russell Westbrook.”
That being said, LeBron James returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers ahead of the 2015 NBA season, joining freshman Irving. Both players led the team back to the NBA Finals in its debut season due to their scoring prowess and attacking style of play. In his four seasons with the Cavaliers, they faced the powerful and resilient Golden State Warriors in four NBA Finals.
In the 2016 NBA Finals, they even surpassed Steve Kerr’s team after trailing 3-1. With both players reunited in Hollywood, one could hope for a good campaign run of the 2023 season and a possible serious run for the championship, especially after the franchise weathered one of its worst seasons.
