LeBron James says playing with Kyrie Irving again was "phenomenal"

NBA All-Star Game 2018

Sunday's All-Star game saw former Cleveland Cavaliers teammates LeBron James and Kyrie Irving reunite on the court and there was no sign of their reported feud.

There was no tension or animosity between the two players as they enjoyed the occasion together and put on a show for the fans.

On the floor, they instantly regained the chemistry they had during three seasons in Cleveland as they combined on several plays, including the crucial go-ahead bucket late in the contest.

Irving delivered a perfect assist to James who finished at the rim to give Team LeBron a lead late in the game which they didn't relinquish.

"I played with him a few times," Irving said of the play after the game, per USA Today.

"I cut back door, Russ was driving, I saw the opportunity. I saw, before even Russ even passed to me, LeBron was going to circle to the rim, and one of the best finishers at the rim.

"So it was kind of an easy drop-off to give us that lead. So we've done it plenty of times before, so nothing new."

When asked about how it felt to team up with Kyrie once again, LBJ described it as "phenomenal".

"It was phenomenal. Anytime you're able to get back and play with one of your old teammates, and as great as he is, we all know that.

"The flashiness, the ball handling, the ability to shoot, it was just great to get back on the floor with him. It was a great moment, for sure."

It was great to see the two superstars putting any issues behind them but it probably wasn't such great viewing for Cavaliers fans as it would've hurt to see them producing great basketball together as they certainly miss Irving in The Land.

Maybe if the two would've sat down in the summer and ironed out their difference, Uncle Drew may still be a member of the Cavs today.

With many of the narratives before the game focusing on the relationship between the duo, there was a viral video doing the rounds of them laughing and joking together on the bench and proving that they have no problems.

This may have translated through the team as another set of former teammates looked to have built bridges too.

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who fell out after the former's departure to the Golden State Warriors, were back on speaking terms.

This allowed for the quartet of ex-teammates to put on a great display and compete for the sake of the fans.
