Kyrie Irving is one of the best point guards in the league when he is on the court. There is no doubt that he is an amazing ballhandler and shot creator, and he has shown that he can be the No. 2 offensive option on a championship-caliber team.

Despite his talent, it seems as though it is a possibility that the Brooklyn Nets will end up trading Kyrie Irving. He has most notably been linked with the Los Angeles Lakers, and NBA insider Brian Windhorst suggested that it's only a matter of time before Irving gets traded to the Lakers.

"Kyrie is an extremely talented player, but at $36 million with one year on his contract, it is hard to find teams that have the construction to offer and are going to accept the risk. You can spend five minutes or five hours looking at it and you're gonna come down to one answer, the only team is the Los Angeles Lakers. Any trade with the Lakers and Nets for Kyrie Irving has got to have Russell Westbrook in it. It's just gotta... so I think this is eventually going to happen, but I think it’s going to be a fight along the way.”

Recently, Kyrie Irving posted a photo of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant on his Instagram story. The photo was posted on Reddit, and that led to a lot of discussion from fans about why he did that. Some people took that as Kyrie Irving trolling the Lakers' fanbase, while others suggested that he's simply saying he doesn't want to be on the Nets any longer.

Time will tell if Kyrie Irving does, in fact, end up on the Los Angeles Lakers. He would be a fantastic fit next to stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, as he is that three-level shot-creating point guard that they need.

Hopefully, we will see the situation between Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets resolved in the future. There is no doubt that Kyrie Irving would be a difference-maker for any team, and we'll see if any other teams join the Lakers in the Kyrie Irving sweepstakes going forward.
