Which team is a better fit for Kyrie Irving: Nets or Lakers?

Kyrie Irving didn't make it to the NBA Finals, but he's been making headlines with where he might go during free agency. Ric Bucher told Colin Cowherd on "The Herd" that the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers were frontrunners to land his services. Brooklyn makes sense because it is close to where Irving grew up and they might be one star away from a deep playoff run. However, LeBron James is in Los Angeles and the two could win more championships together with the Lakers. What's the better fit? 🏀

As much as the New York Knicks think they can get him, Kyrie Irving wants to remain in a situation where he can win right away. The Brooklyn Nets did just that this past year.

The Nets made the playoffs with a roster of developing talent and were successful in their equal share system. Between Caris LeVert, D'Angelo R, Spece Dinwiddie and Jarrett Allen, Brooklyn has plenty of talent to be contenders if Irving brings his ridiculous skill set to the team.

He and LeBron James broke up for a reason and there is no way he should get involved in the mess that is the Lakers organization right now. The Nets are ready to win now and are a better fit for the New Jersey native.

When Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal parted ways, both expressed that if they made it work, it would've been guaranteed titles. It's that kind of regret that will bring Irving to the Lakers.

He and LeBron James were a great fit with one another, James being an overall monster and Irving being always ready for the big moment. He even apologized to James for the way he acted at times when they were together.

NBA Finals appearances and a championship came when Irving and the King were together. Los Angeles would be a great place for that duo to win again.
