CLEVELAND, Ohio — The “Kid,” Kyrie Irving returns to Cleveland to face off against the “King,” of The Land, Lebron James.
Opening nights matchup between the visiting Boston Celtics and the host Cleveland Cavaliers is less about the teams and more or less about the individual rivalry. Yes, we’re calling it a rivalry between The Kid & The King.
Kyrie Irving has a new supporting cast as he prepares to lead the likes of newly acquired Celtics, Gordon Hayward, Marcus Morris, and Rookie Jayson Tatum.
Lebron James will continue his reign with offseason acquisitions Derrick Rose, Jae Crowder, Isaiah Thomas (out until January due to hip injury), and bestie Dwayne Wade.
Let the debate begin…Will Kyrie over throw Lebron for Eastern Conference supremacy? Or Will King James make another NBA Finals reservation without threat to his rule of the East?
Game televised on TNT at 8 PM ET.
