Listen to NBA insider Ric Bucher join The Herd to talk about the buzz around impending free agent Kyrie Irving, as the All-Star Boston Celtics point guard isn’t expected to return to a Celtics team who never seemed to mesh with Irving’s ball-centric personality.
Bucher thinks the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets have emerged as the favorites to land Kyrie, despite early rumors that had Kyrie pegged to the New York Knicks to team up with Kevin Durant
Check out the audio below as Ric says that Irving has purchased a new home in South Orange, NJ, which is only about 15 miles west of New York City. Coincidence for the Jersey native? Bucher doesn’t think so. Ric also reports that Kobe Bryant is heavily recruiting Kyrie to Los Angeles.
