Rumors are swarming around the Los Angeles Lakers. After their huge upset this season, the purple and gold owe it to their fans to deliver. And a major upgrade could be in sights.

Both the Nets and Lakers had one of their most disappointing seasons. Despite having all the star power, both the teams couldn’t do much. And after Kyrie and KD’s promise to be together, KAI may be on his way. Rumors circulating around suggest the former NBA champ will join forces with LeBron James yet again.

Kyrie Irving leaves Lakers fans guessing

The Lakers came into this season with high hopes of making a run for the trophy. As favorites at the beginning of the season, the Westbrook trade turned south for them. Other than their defensive problems, injuries only added to their misery. Likewise, fans need a change with Russ. And the 17-time champs are eyeing to reunite Kyrie and the King.

While they are just rumors, players generally give it away. However, Irving is one for mystery. His recent Instagram post left fans confused as he gave away nothing about his future. Fans were left bamboozled with one even saying, “What the f**k this mean!?. I need something.”

Another fan in the comments section asked, “Bra you staying in BK or nah?” While another one who was left confused said, “Aye man what’s goin on over there.”

Nothing is confirmed just yet, but a reunion of LeBron and Kyrie will blow up the league. The former Cavs duo etched themselves in history after pulling off the legendary 2016 NBA finals. After separating, LeBron has won with AD and the Lakers. But despite moving twice, KAI hasn’t got the winning feeling back. And a move to the most successful franchise and one of his best teammates could be the formula.

With the motivation of being snubbed from the NBA top 75 lists, Kyrie has the hunger to prove himself. Being one of the most skilled players in the league, Irvings’s offense will boost the Lakers up in a huge way.
