Channing Frye on Kyrie Irving and LeBron James Playing Together Again: ‘God No, No Way’
- Updated: January 23, 2019
Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving will be a major player in this summer’s free agent pool and the Los Angeles Lakers — and LeBron James — will look to add another star in order to make a championship run.
“God no,” Frye said to Cleveland.com when asked about the potential reunion. “No way. I think Kyrie is that guy that deserves his own team, that has the ability to take that team to a championship and I think in Kyrie’s mind he knows that and the rest of the league knows that. He’s reached that elite-level status and I think people want to play with him. He’s not second fiddle. He’s not Robin. He’s Nightwing.”
The Cavs forward coupled a great DC Comics comparison with a very strong point. Irving has thrived in his starring role in Boston. He’s playing the best basketball of his career this year, averaging 23.5 points and posting career highs in assists (6.9), rebounds (4.8), and steals (1.7).
Before the start of the season, Irving even made an announcement to the Celtics faithful that he intends to re-sign with the team.
“I’m happy here,” Irving told ESPN after that announcement. “Every single day is at an all-time competitive high. What more can you ask for from an organization as far as getting me out of Cleveland? Really taking a chance regardless of whether I signed back or not.”
In a few months, the NBA will see if that chance Boston took was actually enough to keep Irving for good.
