LeBron James shows love to Kyrie Irving on Instagram
Whatever issues that existed between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving seem to have been patched up.
James’ Los Angeles Lakers faced Irving’s Nets in Brooklyn on Thursday and won the game. After the contest, James and Irving shook hands and shared a big hug.
James shared photos of that on Instagram, captioning it “Brothers! 3 years of eternal moments, memories. Young God was Epic!”
James calling the two of them “brothers” shows how they still feel about each other.
When Irving demanded a trade from the Cavaliers ahead of the 2017-2018 season, it was because he wanted to get away from James and lead his own franchise. Irving’s two seasons in Boston did not go well, and the young point guard learned just how difficult it is to lead your own team. That lesson helped him reconcile with LeBron.
There was even talk that Irving would be open to teaming up with James for the second time in their careers, though that ultimately did not happen. But it’s clear the two are on good terms after being teammates for four seasons in Cleveland.
