KYRIE IS SUCH A DIVA, HE SLIPPED OFF THE EDGE OF HIS OWN FLAT EARTH
So what is the deal with Kyrie Irving? He’s a Wunderkid who sort of played for Duke University. But he had an injury which cut his one year of college basketball really short. Despite that, Kyrie was still the number one pick to Cleveland back in 2011. Sure, he definitely had some success there with Lebron. Despite how he seemed to be a bit of a Diva, I didn’t blame him at all for demanding a trade. After all, Lebron was gonna leave and Kyrie would have been left with all the wrong pieces on the roster. So cue Boston, who leapt at the opportunity to take such a talent and put the ball in his hands. But now, with Kyrie on his way to Brooklyn, it’s clear that his Earth is really flat and this little Diva monster totally slipped off the edge.
BOSTON WAS A MUCH BETTER TEAM WHEN KYRIE WAS WAVING POM POMS
Boston went from being an amazing team with an injured Kyrie cheering them on two playoffs ago to a miserable morass with him on the floor. Talented shooters were all around Kyrie. But he forced hero ball shots against Milwaukee’s lengthy defenders. Every other Celtic just got to watch him shoot an appalling percentage and hand several games, and the series, over to the Greek Freak entourage. Sure the series went 6 games. But Boston had every advantage, except for the locker room and floor general cancer that is Kyrie Irving.
KEMBA WALKER WILL BRING A WELL ROUNDED GAME TO KYRIE’S FLAT EARTH BOSTON
But here’s how bad things got in Boston last year. We do know that Kyrie has never been sanguine with the press. But he offered a never ending string of no-confidence statements about pretty much every topic. And suddenly, all the young players played like garbage. Jason Tatum is GOOD. SO is Jaylen Brown. And Brendan Hayward looks to be getting back into elite form. But everyone sucked last year playing with Kyrie Irving. The Celtics have proven reticent when it comes to casting any shade Kyrie’s way. The only grouser was Terry Rozier essentially said a him or me regarding Kyrie. Instead, Rozier’s footprint is about to get filled by a serious upgrade. Syonara!
KYRIE EVEN REFUSED TO PARTICIPATE IN CELTICS CHARITY DRIVE
But here’s the last and the least of Kyrie’s enigmatic diva attitude. As the regular season ended recently, the Celtics assembled 100 balls for everyone to sign. All of these were going to raise money for charity. But Kyrie refused. Don’t worry, Kyrie, your world may be flat. But shit comes around again. You better duck when it does.
