LeBron James said that he and Kyrie Irving patched up their relationship following Irving’s phone call asking James for leadership advice last month.
Yes, there was damage done to the relationship between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.
Also yes, it was repaired by Irving’s call to James last month to apologize.
“Yeah, we’re in a good place right now,” James told The Athletic Saturday night. “Me and Kyrie are in a good place right now. I love the man that he’s becoming, I love the challenges he’s accepted and I always wish the best for him.”
James said of that call: “We talked and it was a great conversation,” but wouldn’t divulge what he said to Irving. “He told y’all what he said,” James said.
James added that he appreciates how Irving handled the media last weekend following a Celtics game against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden where Irving reiterated that his focus was on winning a title.
“He handled it great. His post interview was great as well. Just a lot of things that’s going on in our league right now, and the one thing you want to focus on is getting that team to place where he wanted it to be, and that’s competing for a championship.”
Could this all be leading towards another super-team?
