Last summer there were rumors that the Lakers and Kyrie Irving had mutual interest. Reportedly, LeBron James was pushing Los Angeles to make a move for his former teammate.
The trade did not happen, but the door is not closed for a potential re-union of the 2016 NBA champions, says Tristan Thompson who won the title along with them.
“I’ve been pushing that re-uniting, that coming together for so long…,” Thompson told Draymond Green on his podcast. “With Kyrie and LeBron it’s almost like a match made in heaven. They brought they best out of each other.
“It was like the things that Kyrie does great is different than what LeBron does great. It was beautiful to watch their two-man game side pick and roll because they’re so dynamic and great at so many different things. But together it’s like almost unstoppable.
“I think in terms of could it happen? Yes. Will I continue pushing it when I’m on TV? Most definitely because I think Kyrie brings the best out of LeBron and LeBron does the same thing – brings the best out of Kyrie… It feels like it wasn’t finished the way it was supposed to… it’s not over yet.”
