LeBron James, Kyrie Irving Set to Renew Working Relationship at All-Star Game

Steve Silverman@@profootballboyFeatured ColumnistFebruary 18, 2018

This is not going to be a run-of-the-mill NBA All-Star Game.

When the best players in the league get together Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the Eastern Conference All-Stars will not take on their Western Conference counterparts.

In case you haven't heard, it's Team LeBron vs. Team Steph. LeBron James and Stephen Curry are the two All-Star captains, and they picked their own teams.

One of LeBron's choices, perhaps surprisingly, was his ex-teammate Kyrie Irving. Of course, Irving left the Cavs over the summer to join the rival Boston Celtics.

Why did Irving leave Cleveland? For many reasons, but one of them was to get out of James' considerable shadow.

But they are teammates again, for one day and one game. We shall see if they play together nicely.
