The good takeaway from that reply is that Irving has his sights set on competing for a title with the Celtics next year. Sports who does analyst work for NBC Sports Boston, appeared Monday on FS1's "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" and outlined why he questions whether the Celtics will have any real interest in meeting with James this summer.
Irving is eligible for an extension this summer but, even coming off another knee surgery that sidelined him for Boston's improbable run to the cusp of the Finals, was adamant that he'll wait for the summer of 2019 to examine his future.
However, Irving grew disgruntled in Cleveland.
This is all popping up as Danny Ainge and the Celtics weigh their options with Irving. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum proved they were ready to win immediately. However, James averaged 27.5 points, 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds on 54.2 percent shooting in 82 games during the regular season before having the best postseason anyone has ever seen. The thought process is that James would prefer not to play with Kevin Durant or former teammate Kyrie Irving as joining either team would require them to be traded.
What have Trump and Kim signed up to in historic meeting?
Washington is eager to see if the North's pledges were "sincere", Pompeo said, adding: "The US has been fooled before". They shook hands for several seconds, Trump reaching out to touch the North Korean leader on his right shoulder.
Irving said that's a discussion to be had after the upcoming season. If Cleveland uses the eighth pick in this month's draft to add Michael Porter Jr., Wendell Carter or Collin Sexton, it could make for an attractive roster, especially considering that dishing James to the Celtics could also net them Morris or Rozier. Trading two seasons of Hayward for one campaign with James is a worthwhile proposition.
Irving could be the no-questions-asked leader of a championship-caliber team in a big market if he remains in Boston.
Boston will be healthy next season and depending on what happens with LeBron and his free agency, the Celtics should be considered the early favorite in the East.
