Before joining as teammates this summer, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James knew plenty about each other.

But Irving couldn’t fully appreciate James’ genius until they came together in July and he learned what was required to build a foundation of greatness.

“I was just speechless,” Irving admitted. “I became a fan to be honest with you. It’s a different feeling when you’re on a team with someone you’ve watched for so long.”
