The upcoming holiday on February 14th is a day to celebrate that partner in your life that gives you the butterflies, but it can also be a reminder of the past beaus that were meant to stay for just a short chapter in life. Whether it be timing, compatibility issues, or straight up red-flag behavior, some relationships aren’t meant to last forever, and some are destined to exist for a short period of time. Take Kyrie Irving and James Harden for instance, who on paper looked to be an unstoppable back-court tandem, but only lasted sixteen games due to injuries and other personal choices. It was indeed a magical run, leaving many to wonder if the Brooklyn Big Three left a championship on the table. As they say, when one door closes another one opens, because Brooklyn has replaced the Beard with a young man named Ben, and quite frankly the trade worked out for the best on both sides. Kyrie Irving, who has yet to play games at home due to vaccination mandates, has been sporting his Kyrie Infinity signature strictly on road games, so there’s a shot this Valentine’s Day colorway could show up on his feet during the Saturday night game against the Heat.
