TT’s comments come after Irving recently admitted on the “I AM ATHLETE” podcast that he and LeBron would have won more championships together if he had been more mature.
Of course, that admission has to sting a little bit for Thompson (hey, at least he got one off the Warriors!!) … but he explained to us Bron and Kyrie will always hold a special place in his heart after what they accomplished in 2016.
“I win a ‘ship with somebody, they’re always my favorite,” Thompson said.
Tristan knows firsthand what the two guys are capable of — he was a part of the Cavaliers team led by James and Irving that erased a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals to beat the Golden State Warriors … and was a key role player in the series.
Before the breakup, LBJ and Kyrie enjoyed success together in Cleveland … dominating the Eastern Conference and making four consecutive Finals appearances.
