Well folks, it looks like Kyrie Irving is up to his usual (or is it unusual) shenanigans.
During a Nets practice today, Irving defended his controversial post-game comments from earlier this week when he complained about not having enough help and excluded a couple of names of guys on the team by essentially listing the players who, in his opinion, didn’t need to be traded.
Take a look at his comments today:
Kyrie knows what it takes to win:
“I’m going to continue to demand greatness out of myself and demand greatness out of my teammates. … If it’s too much for anybody, you’re not in our locker room—stay the f–k out.”

Jesus Christ. Irving speaks as though he graduated from Duke with honors, though we all know that he didn’t graduate from Duke because he left after one injury plagued year for the NBA, and also that the dude is such a blowhard. Irving’s intellectual capacity is obviously so limited that I’m shocked that he didn’t resort to incorporating comments about how “the earth is flat, and you would have to be too, if you think you’re going to get back in our locker room.”
Remember a couple of years ago when it was rumored that LeBron James reportedly wanted to trade Irving for Chris Paul AFTER the Cleveland Cavaliers won a championship?
I see why now.
This guy is a cancer. Every team that he goes to, he drags down with his immature ways and wanna-be Jedi mind tricks. Yes, obviously he is very talented, and a NBA champion. I think I left a lung in Chattanooga, TN from screaming so hard when he gave Steph Curry the business in the 2016 finals.
But he burned a bridge when he left Cleveland.
He burned a bridge when he left Boston.
And you can bet it won’t be much longer before he lights up the Brooklyn Bridge on his way out of there next.
It reminds me of an old bromide that my grandfather used to always fondly say, “If it talks like an idiot and acts like an idiot, then by golly, it is a spoiled modern-day professional athlete whose fame and riches have warped his brain.”
If Irving wants to get back to winning, he would hush up and lead the Nets by example, because even in Boston, he would get on his ice box and preach about how he won a championship and that should have garnered esteemed and Godly reverence in the Celtic locker room.
That was LeBron’s championship, let’s not kid ourselves here people.
His teammates didn’t respect him in Boston, and unconfirmed sources say that not only did they drive Irving to the Boston airport, but they also packed his bags, cleaned out his house, and prepared a lovely lunch for his short flight to New York City.
So the truth of the matter is that if Irving wants to get back to winning, he will probably have to just keep his mouth shut until Kevin Durant suits up next season. I doubt that is what we’ll get but we will see.
We will see.
