Bucks Are Building Property in Kyrie Irving’s Brain
On Friday’s podcast, I talked about how Kyrie Irving is one of the more annoying players in basketball. He is a hell of a player, don’t get me wrong, but the guy is a joke when he opens his fucking mouth. Case in point, the comments about Game 3 on Friday night. After the game, Irving made the comments to the media that the refs slowed down the game in the third quarter when Milwaukee flipped the game from Boston whilst completely ignoring the fact that Boston’s offense looked awful throughout that quarter. It tells me the Bucks are in Irving’s head and that’s not a good thing if you’re a Celtics fan.

Here’s the thing, Mr. Kyrie… YOUR TEAM CAN NOT STOP FOULING GIANNIS. He is too damn good. Look how much Shaquille O’Neal got fouled in his time because Shaq was unstoppable. You can apply the same logic with Giannis Antetokounmpo. Crying Kyrie over there can not wrap his head around that Antetokounmpo is a monster. It is clear to me that he is speaking for the team and frustrated with the officials. When you’re bitching about the officials, that’s when you know the opposing team has you in their head.
I hope Giannis takes it directly at Kyrie on play one on Monday night.
