This morning, Kyrie Irving made an appearance on ESPN’s First Take. For the most part, he hasn’t really spoken on why he wanted to be traded or his relationship with LeBron. Now, of course, Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman HAD to ask him about this stuff. It’s just the kind of guys they are. Kyrie did a great job of dodging nearly every single question they had for him. Check it out:
God damn, why didn’t this guy become a politician? Kyrie was skating around those questions left and right. Bill Belichick would be very proud. He was pretty cordial with Stephen A., but he wasn’t taking any shit from Kellerman, which was hilarious. He seemed annoyed with almost everything he had to say.
Even though he keeps trying to dodge it, Kyrie is making his opinion on LeBron James felt. It’s so obvious that he hates him. His demeanor every time LeBron’s name is mentioned around him completely gives it away. I’m not sure what he did to piss Kyrie off, but I’m all for it. There’s nothing I want more than my star player hating LeBron James, and that’s something I think all Celtics fans can agree with.
Kyrie is an extremely well-spoken and introspective guy, this much we know. I really wouldn’t have expected anything less than that from this interview.
