NBA All-Star Game of Sunday night made a sequence that saw fans of the basket a few times before.
In the fourth quarter of the star-studded event at the Spectrum Center at Charlotte N.C., Kyrie Irving switched a smoothly leisurely ounce to LeBron James as Team LeBron in sweat leading it to Team Giannis.
Irving and James assembled for countless high-reel plays throughout their three seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers. But putting nostalgia aside, many people on Twitter believe (or expect) the Irving-to-James alley-oop is a sign of things to come as Irving's future at the Boston Celtics remains uncertain.

Irving reuniting with James seems impossible a few months ago, the teammates had set past behind them and now in good terms. It said Irving's recent statements about his future were far too big, and should consider the possible situation this summer as the Celtics re-signed their star point guard.
Plus, if you ask Los Angeles Lakers fans, they probably prefer James as soon as possible to team players with his other team of Team LeBron, Anthony Davis.
