Kyrie Irving requested a trade, nothing new about that, but did you know why Kyrie chooses the Timberwolves as one of the top potential destinations for his trade request?
The answer is friendship. When leBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh played together, that was because of mutual understanding. When Carmelo Anthony wishes to be traded to Cleveland or Houston, it's also because two of his friends are on each teams.
Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler has been close friends for a while now and the evidence is here. If they can make good music together, they can certainly play together.
