But in an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night, Uncle Drew left room for doubt that his relationship with LeBron is beyond repair.
"I mean, in professional sports, anything can happen, so, you never know," Irving admitted to Kimmel.
And while the odds are certainly not in favor of that actually happening, crazier things have happened. Who knows, maybe the All-Star break is an opportunity for Kyrie to recruit James to Boston.
In any case, despite what everyone seems to believe, a James/Kyrie reunion may yet be possible. James (by picking Irving on his team in the All-Star game) and Irving have certainly left that door wide open.
