It hasn’t been even a full eight months since Kyrie Irving was shipped to the Boston Celtics in return for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, and a highly-valuable Brooklyn Nets first-round pick, yet the former Cleveland Cavaliers point guard didn’t scratch off a potential reunion with his ex-running mate LeBron James.

As a guest in Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Irving didn’t scratch off the possibility to reunite with his former teammate, as he will for a day during the All-Star Game this Sunday.

“I mean, in professional sports, anything can happen, so, you never know,” Irving told Kimmel during Thursday night’s show.

Irving left, notably trying to pull away from James’ dominion, and in hopes to carve his own path and legacy as the go-to player with his own team. But even if the Celtics have overachieved without Gordon Hayward, who suffered a horrific injury five minutes into his season debut against the Cavs, Irving’s motto very much remains never say never.

Irving and James formed one of the best one-two punches in the NBA during their three years together and the wild turns of free agency have a way to make crazy things happen at the blink of an eye.

Both players have reportedly no animosity toward each other as the season has gone on, and if they have indeed let bygones be bygones — they could very well find themselves playing for the same team at some point in their careers.

For the time being, James and the Cavs have been eyes on the prize, winning their last four games with a rejuvenated roster, hoping to climb the ladder and reach the Eastern Conference crown when it’s all said and done.
