New York tabloids already printing covers with Kyrie Irving in Knicks jersey

New York tabloids already printing covers with Kyrie Irving in Knicks jersey

There's dreaming big, there's dream teams, and then there's what's going in New York.

The New York Post on Friday tweeted a screenshot of their cover story—a photo depicting Kyrie Irving wearing a Knicks uniform—ripe with speculation about the looming offseason.

The New York Daily News followed suit, with their cover depicting Irving, Kawhi Leonard, and Kevin Durant as potential Knicks.

The speculation is not unfounded. Irving can enter free agency this offseason, and while he stated his intention to re-sign with the Celtics in October, there have been rumors he may change his mind.

Rumors have circulated that he may be interested in the Knicks, or reuniting with LeBron James on the Los Angeles Lakers.

What uniform will Kyrie be wearing come this fall? Only time will tell.

Ex-Celtic Kyrie Irving elected as NBPA Vice President

Ex-Celtic Kyrie Irving elected as NBPA Vice President

The National Basketball Players Association's announcement Monday about its new Vice President likely earned an eye roll from Boston Celtics fans.

Brooklyn Nets guard and ex-Celtic Kyrie Irving was appointed as the NBPA's new VP, replacing Pau Gasol. Irving was elected at Monday's annual winter meeting of the Board of NBPA Player Representatives.

"This was the right time for me to run for a leadership position in the NBPA,” said Irving, per the NBPA's official statement. “I have been an observer and a participant in union affairs for a while, but for the most part, I was off on the sidelines, supporting our Executive Committee as they made important decisions.

"At this point in my career, I wanted to join forces with those guys and take a bigger role outside of the basketball court and within our union. I want to help move the union forward with innovative ideas, not only on social issues but also with business ventures into a new space. I am honored to be elected by my peers and I cannot wait to work with everybody to make an impact."

Irving being selected for a leadership role certainly is ironic considering the questions about his leadership ability during his brief tenure in Boston. Making it even more interesting is he'll join a committee that includes his former C's teammate, Jaylen Brown (VP).

Also on the committee are Oklahoma City Thunder veteran Chris Paul (President), Miami Heat veteran Andre Iguodala (First Vice President), Sacramento Kings forward Anthony Tolliver (Secretary-Treasurer), Charlotte Hornets center Bismack Biyombo, Indiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon, Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum and Nets forward Garrett Temple (Vice Presidents).

Jayson Tatum shares best moments from first All-Star Game on Instagram

Jayson Tatum shares best moments from first All-Star Game on Instagram

Jayson Tatum's maturity on the court this season helped earn him a spot in the 2020 NBA All-Star Game in Chicago.

But the morning after, the Boston Celtics forward reacted as any 21-year-old kid would: He posted on Instagram.

Here's Tatum recapping his first NBA All-Star Game, in which he added six points, three assists and three steals in 14 minutes for Team LeBron, which defeated Team Giannis 157-155:

"WOW... just played in my first All-Star game! Dreams do come true! Thankful," Tatum wrote in the caption.

The third-year forward also shared several memorable photos, including a shot of him backing down Celtics teammate Kemba Walker (the starting point guard for Team Giannis) and a picture of him posing with veteran guard Chris Paul.

The relationships Tatum forged (and maintained) at his first All-Star weekend were far more important than his play on the court, and it sounds like budding young star made the most of his opportunity.
