Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James knows how to feed into a rumor. Amid a number of analysts entertaining the idea of Kyrie Irving joining the Lakers, James posted an Instagram video in which he’s singing a song about reuniting with an old flame to Irving.
James posted two videos on Instagram and made sure to tag Irving’s handle in one of them.

That first video features James singing Fetty Wap’s “Rewind.” He tagged Irving in the video, saying “this that joint!”
The second video might even be more revealing. James posted a portion of the song that referencing rekindling an old relationship.
Here’s the part where we admit we have no idea what this means. Is it possible this is James’ way of telling the world he wants Irving on the Lakers? It could be. It is more likely that James is media savvy and knows he can troll the ever-living crap out of basketball fans with two short Instagram videos? Probably.
None of this would have happened had Irving not called James to apologize for his actions when the two were teammates on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Irving, who’s now a member of the Boston Celtics, said said he apologized to James about being young and wanting everything. Irving also said he now realizes how hard it is to lead a team.
Since then, many have speculated about the possibility of Irving reuniting with James in Los Angeles, even if it seems farfetched. That was enough to get James to weigh in on the topic in his own unique way.
