Huge Kyrie Irving Trade Shock May Light Up LeBron James’ World as Lakers World Enters Unfathomable Fantasy Mode 44 days ago

With less than a week remaining before the NBA trade deadline, All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving has requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets. Irving, who took center stage for the Nets ever since Kevin Durant had been sidelined due to injury, wants out ahead of the trade deadline. The breaking news has taken the NBA world by storm, with social media struggling to figure out Irving’s potential destination.

However, amid all the mayhem, Lakers Nation has erupted with the loudest ever call for a potential trade to reunite Irving with LeBron James.

Kyrie Irving demands a shocking trade request

NBA insider Shams Charania of The Atheltic recently broke the breaking news about Kyrie Irving’s abrupt request for a trade out of Brooklyn. Moreover, Irving has requested to be traded ahead of the trade deadline. However, if the Brooklyn Nets fail to find a suitor before the trade deadline, Irving’s camp has declared that he will leave during the free agency in July.

According to a report by the Atheltic, Joe Tsai and the Nets recently offered an extension to the 30-year-old star with a portion of it guaranteed. However, Irving, who will enter free agency as an unrestricted free agent, declined the extension. Interestingly, according to sources, Irving had also requested a sign-in trade ahead of the season before opting into the last year of his contract.

The shocking news has ensued a massive social media storm with fanbases around the league pressing their front offices for pulling the trigger on the 7x All-Star. However, the Lakers have emerged as the loudest in the bunch.

Lakers fans rally for Irving-James reunion

All season, Los Angeles Lakers fans have campaigned to shake up the roster and trade for players like Irving. However, the latest developments from Irving’s camp have caused a major frenzy in Hollywood.

Here are some fan reactions:

The Brooklyn Nets (31-20) were on an impressive run before Kevin Durant got sidelined due to an injury. However, for the past few weeks, Irving had stepped up and willed his team to a victory on several occasions. One of which came against the Los Angeles Lakers (25-28) a few days back.

If Rob Pelinka and co were indeed going to pull this trade off, the Lakers will boast the iconic reunion of Irving and King James. The two won the 2016 NBA championship over the 72-9 Golden State Warriors in a thrilling seven-game series in the NBA Finals. The addition of ‘Uncle Drew’ will certainly increase the playoff chances of the Lakers, who are currently seeded 12th in the Western Conference.
