'Slim Chance' LeBron James Would Join Warriors Or Celtics, Reports Say

The Celtics guard on Wednesday (AEST) deferred when asked about the prospect of the team pursuing James this summer. Cleveland traded Irving to Boston for Isiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Žižić, Brooklyn's 2018 first round pick (Number 8 overall), and a 2020 second round pick. If Ainge was willing to ship off Isaiah Thomas for Kyrie Irving, who played in the playoffs only a day after his sister passed away in a vehicle accident, why wouldn't he be willing to trade Hayward away if the right offer came through? Sure, he's a bit - how do I say this - unconventional, but you still don't expect players to be so opaque about the future. "We'll see what happens".

"It puts things at ease", said Irving, who added that he and Celtics' brass have had no talks about James potentially coming to Boston. Injuries have always been a big concern for Irving, as he only played in 11 games in college at Duke and has never played a full 82 game season in his National Basketball Association career.

"In this business, I've kind of experienced it all and I've seen a lot", Irving said (via NBA.com).

Irving also had a separate surgery in May to fix a deviated septum, a procedure that kept him away from the sidelines for Game 7 of the Celtics' Eastern Conference Finals series against James and the Cavaliers. "So I'm excited to just really utilize this offseason to dedicate myself to my craft and things outside of it". They passed a lot of expectations and I couldn't be more proud of them.

Kyrie Irving and LeBron James produced one of the best moments in sports history as teammates, rallying from 3-1 down to win the 2016 NBA Finals against the mighty Golden State Warriors.

The Celtics would of course love some clarity from Irving at some point.

Irving did note that he hasn't had any conversations with Boston's front office about James and said he appreciates the transparency of team brass as they map out their future vision. I really just can't wait to see how we all kind of feel going into the summertime and when we get together. When the team is at full strength, he said no opponent will be able to push them harder than they push themselves.
