Kyrie Irving Doesn’t Think Of Christmas As A Real Holiday
Kyrie Irving has really spent most of 2017 confusing fans with his wild hot takes. First, he revealed that he believes the Earth is flat. Then, after he said that he was just trolling, he later went back to his original belief that he actually, really does think the Earth is flat.
A few months after all of that talk calmed down, it looks like Kyrie has mustered up the courage to make some more controversial–or really just pretty confusing–statements. On Thursday night after the Celtics lost to the Knicks, Irving was asked if he’s looking forward to playing on Christmas Day. Though one might expect a simple answer about being excited or enjoying the holiday season, from Kyrie, that’s not what we got at all.
He said to the reporter: “The hoopla on Christmas, I don’t really get into that. I don’t really necessarily think of Christmas as a holiday.”
The even weirder part is that Irving went on to say that he looks forward to spending time with his family on Christmas, which kinda suggest that he treats Christmas like a holiday, or at least how most of us do. It would be one thing for the NBA star to say that he doesn’t celebrate Christmas, but him saying that he doesn’t consider it a holiday has everyone confused.
