James calling the two of them “brothers” shows how they still feel about each other.
When Irving demanded a trade from the Cavaliers ahead of the 2017-2018 season, it was because he wanted to get away from James and lead his own franchise. Irving’s two seasons in Boston did not go well, and the young point guard learned just how difficult it is to lead your own team. That lesson helped him reconcile with LeBron.
There was even talk that Irving would be open to teaming up with James for the second time in their careers, though that ultimately did not happen. But it’s clear the two are on good terms after being teammates for four seasons in Cleveland.
Cue to present, the official Lakers Instagram posted a video of James showing them how it’s done with a reverse layup. LeBron, in turn, posted the video on his official Instagram with the caption, “Learned that from Young God”, and tagged Kyrie Irving.
