A video of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant talking during NBA All-Star Weekend sparked a debate as to whether the Boston Celtics guard was trying to recruit the Golden State Warriors star.
And Irving has had enough of the chatter.
Durant and Irving both were part of Team LeBron in Sunday’s All-Star Game. And with all the rumors tying both players to the New York Knicks, it’s no surprise the video blew up. The C’s guard has made a lot of comments — some being taken out of context — despite vocalizing his desire to stay in Boston after this season.
Irving since has been peppered with questions regarding his future and Wednesday was no different. The 26-year-old was asked about the video of him and Durant, and he did not hold back in his response.
The tweets come with a NSFW warning.
It’s hard to blame Irving for sounding off. His focus is on the Celtics and trying to get the team to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010, but the media seems enamored with asking him about every little thing he does.
Irving and Co. have a tough matchup ahead of them, as the Celtics prepare for the Eastern Conference’s first place Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night in their first game since the All-Star break.
