LeBron James and Kyrie Irving won a ring together before, and it may not have been their last … ’cause former NBA forward Matt Barnes tells TMZ Sports the Los Angeles Lakers could be smelling champagne if Kyrie Irving joins L.A.

“I think what they have right now … if they can learn to co-exist with the group they have now, they’re really close … Kyrie is probably a top 5 talent in the world, but you never know what you’re going to get. So, if Kyrie is committed to playing whether he plays in Brooklyn or the Lakers, he definitely makes them a title contender,” Barnes said.
