Playoff mode didn’t work out for LeBron James and the Lakers this season.  Both are hopeful GM mode is a little more successful this off-season. 

It was reported on Thursday that LeBron has already started the recruiting process and met with Jimmy Butler and Kawhi Leonard about joining him on the Lakers.

That was later followed up by a tweet from ESPN insider Jordan Schultz that claimed LeBron and Kyrie Irving were spotted out together in Los Angeles.

Was a possible reunion on the West Coast discussed?  Possibly.  LeBron sent social media further into a frenzy on Friday, when he liked an Instagram post of Kyrie in a Lakers jersey.

That would certainly suggest the ex-teammates had talks about possibly teaming up again.  If they didn’t discuss a reunion in the purple and gold, LeBron certainly seems open to it.
