Video: Celtics’ Kyrie Irving lobs it to Lakers’ LeBron James in NBA All-Star Game
Team LeBron earned a 178-164 come from behind win against Team Giannis in the All-Star Game, with the help of former teammates LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. It seems that the two have decided to set the Los Angeles Lakers-Boston Celtics rivalry aside during the game, as they were instrumental in Team LeBron’s second half run that erased what was once a 19-point lead for Team Giannis.
Here is a play showing Irving’s awesome alley-oop to James.

It seems that both are really getting along now after the reported phone conversation that they had last month where Irving apologized to James for his actions that led to their premature break-up in Cleveland.
Following their conversation, reports have circulated that Kyrie is now willing to reunite with LeBron with the Los Angeles Lakers, and although Irving has publicly stated that he remains committed to the Celtics, things could change this summer.
The Lakers have enough cap space to sign one more player to a max contract. The team is expected to go after big-name free agents, including Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, and Irving.
So is this a sign of things to come next season? The answer to that question will come four months from now, when Irving makes his free agency decision.
For now, the Celtics are going to make a title run, while the Lakers will try to make the playoffs.
