Kyrie skipped his media availability last week and the NBA fined the flat earther $25,000. No biggie, right?
Right. Until Kyrie released this statement on the fine and why he skipped his availability.
Now it’s a ‘Biggie’.

You don’t say?
Other than thinking the planet is flat, Kyrie is also a massive asshole, apparently.
Calling the people who will define your public legacy ‘pawns’ is incredibly disrespectful to the men and women working hard to cover the NBA and it’s a fraternity of people who love their gig. NBA reporters and media colleagues are going to make an example of Irving after that statement and he absolutely deserves it.
Irving has never been able to grasp the concept that writers and reporters have the distinct ability to destroy his personal reputation and just can’t help himself, ever. I kinda like that about Kyrie in a sick way, too. He’s so deeply anti-whatever the fuck everyone else is he’s saying because he’s on a very different level than the rest of us, and what if he’s right? He’s hands down the best ball handler in the league. What if the earth is a disk and we’ve been lied to for years? What if those reporters are pawns in some sick Lame Stream Media game nowhere a cabal of pedophile Satan worshippers from Calabasas are trafficking kids in IKEA MALM’s?
Or maybe, Kyrie Irving is just an insufferable asshole who doesn’t have time for people who ask him questions about basketball.
Life’s short. It’s just a 10 minute Q&A, Kyrie. That 10 minutes of your undivided attention could have negated all of this bad will because you just can’t help yourself.
Classic Kyrie. He’ll retire in 3 years and move to a farm in Wyoming next to Kanye. Book it.
