It’s pretty much clear to everyone, there are really slim chances Kyrie Irving will remain with the Boston Celtics after this season is over. It was pretty obvious Irving’s style doesn’t fit well within the system Celtics are trying to run and in some games, they looked much better on the court when Irving wasn’t playing.
There were a lot of rumors circling around the NBA about the potential teams that are of Irving’s interest and even though there was a lot of discussion about him possibly joining the New York Knicks this summer it seems things have changed. According to different reports Irving is considering two teams he could potentially join this summer and it’s the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets.
On today’s ESPN show “Get Up” Mike Greenberg actually said there is a high probability that Irving will eventually end up signing with the Los Angeles Lakers during the summer. On the other hand, Richard Jefferson who is also the host on the show believes that is not a possibility simply because of the misunderstanding they had with each other when they were both playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers
“Their relationship is probably as good right now as it has been since Kyrie left. But when you get to a spot where it’s kind of like an ex-relationship. ‘We’re good right now. We’re in a good place.’ Does that mean we want to get back together? No. That’s where they are. They’re in a good relationship right now, but them getting back together might not be the best idea.”

The next couple of months will be interesting because there are still a lot of uncertainties about Irving’s future with the Celtics. If Irving decide to join the Lakers and his former teammate LeBron James, that will definitely bring a lot of attention from the media but at the same time improve their chances of making the playoffs next year.
