Kyrie Applauds Trolls While Playing Grand Theft Auto V – OutKick

Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving has come under intense scrutiny over the years following his release from Cleveland and Boston. The day has finally come where he addressed the trolls via Twitch and while we disagree, it’s pretty hilarious. (linguistic warning)

“By the way…it’s been so long we can say the same jokes…but so long.” ‘Oooo Kyrie… what are you doing at home?’ That’s how you hear me. ‘What are you doing at home? Are you going to Cancun? Where are you? Are you at home? Kyrie, you suck.

Invaluable. Our first reaction is that Kyrie and Kevin Durant are hyper aware of their surroundings. Some call it having “bunny ears,” but we’ll call it the ability to make obvious observations. Those jokes that Kyrie is sick of hearing are probably all he listens to. He’s probably done enough on the floor and gets paid enough to ignore the noise, but at some point those guys will probably want to listen to something else, right? In this case, Irving jumped on Grand Theft Auto V and yet he still can’t escape his basketball life. A life he built on a game-winning shot in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, but also all the distractions he’s responsible for. Either way, he’d probably like to spend a second as a normal person who could fit in with the community around him.

Society claims money doesn’t bring happiness, Irving makes all the money in the world and seems to have a hard time fitting into our world, and now we want him to get over it because he is rich ? Again, we can’t entirely excuse his past as he didn’t accidentally become the villain of the NBA – Irving chose this when he decided to knock down the Boston crowd coming out of the first round. Demanding a trade away from LeBron after winning an NBA championship for the Cleveland Cavaliers didn’t help either.

Kyrie Irving enjoys being the villain while periodically growing weary of the role. We understand how exhausting it can be, but we also recognize that hardly anyone can play both sides. Kyrie must choose the role he wants to play and stick to it.
