Adam Mares made a mock-up tweet from Shams Charania which perfectly summarized what all fans see around this time of year.
It usually involves a well-known player not seeing eye-to-eye with his team and talk of him being traded away.
And for some reason, it seems that the New York Knicks or Los Angeles Lakers are always in discussions to land the star.
Right now, the rumors are running rampant around Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets – but he won’t be the last one.
Ready For Rumors?
Yes, Irving is currently the center of all the speculation but there will soon be other names tossed around as potential trade targets.
As for the Knicks and Lakers, why are they always tied to so many athletes in the league?
That’s because no matter how bad they get, they are still two of the most storied franchises in NBA history.
Plus, they always seem to be this close to turning things around and becoming great again.
Additionally, which NBA stars wouldn’t want to live in either the Big Apple or City of Angels?
Will either of these teams actually grab Irving or any other star this summer?
Stay tuned to the tweets to find out.
