    Kyrie is a vegan,which explains he fucked up mindset.

    Andre Mitchell

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    He was traded to the Celtics….he didn't demand that trade…Cavs wanted to avoid paying him the max because they knew LeBron was leaving. Its bullshit how they misrepresented Kyries situation all year. He lead that team without Hayward all year until he was injured himself right before the fucking playoffs.

    Boston will miss Al Horford way more than Kyrie Irving. Put the pieces together people. All the drama with Cleveland, flat earth comments, drama with Boston, throwing his own teammates under the bus, corny ass promises of signing with Boston "If they'll have him", missing key playoff games as support for his team when he was injured, etc. The list goes on of red flags that the guy is a giant Diva with an ego.

    Kemba is 85-90% of the player but a 200% better fit. Good riddance.

    @02:00 more proof Stephen A lies, has no idea what he's talking about and it pretends to have inside sources. Stellar job you hack

    J Alves

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    Kyrie Irving until Kevin Durant steps on the court will bring Brooklyn maybe to the playoffs but their out the first round, the Brooklyn Nets with Kyrie Irving are a substantially worse team than the Celtics were last year, he had Al Horford, Jaylen Brown, Tatum, Hayward, Morris, Rozier, Smart and couldn’t lead them to anything. People are missing the fact that he really messed up that team so bad everyone in Boston isn’t sad to see him leave for
    The most part people are very happy about it, wouldn’t be surprised if Brooklyn fans feel the same a year from now.

    "Kyrie Irving is heading to Madison Square Garden" and then SAS woke up from his sweet dream into his dark reality.

    Ian O'Neil

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    Stephen A is being hypocritical. Calling out Kyrie for not being a leader then blaming Boston for doing the same. Smdh.

    Dustyment

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    Kyrie really danced on thr Celtics, did a crossover on the knicks and a spin all the way to Brookyln..

    MarloSoBalJr

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    If Kyrie goes "Babe Ruth" all of the sudden, I'm gonna laugh my ass off at Boston for f*cking up

    Jared Thomas

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    I've been saying for YEARS that Kyrie is OVERRATED… The media GASSED HIM UP as a potential TOP 5 player because of ONE shot… I seem to be the ONLY guy who remembers what he was in Cleveland BEFORE LeBron… Basically the WORST 3-year stretch in the NBA record wise, INJURY prone, and a BALL HOG that made NO ONE better

    FUCK YOU KYRIE
    Sincerely a die hard Boston fan

    These Stephen A supercuts are great

    You guys having fun distracting the public from making money and becoming rich? well youre high-paid slaves.. who do you think is paying you…? that's right.. the master… If youre an employee than you're a slave… Understand? Dont matter what color you are, money isnt racist

    LQ Zaandam

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    Glad he is gone. We won’t mis him. Paying too much for ppl Ayers these days. He is injure prompt. Let’s see how far and how long he goes with the Nets.

    Kyrie left Bron cause he wanted to be his own leader then teamed up with KD INSTEAD of Bron …… huh?????

    David Wilson

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    Lebron and Kyrie truly have a Batman / Robin (Dick Grayson) relationship!

    Stephen Curry clone? 0:26 💛💙

    John Napolitana

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    He lied to the fans face Kyrie

    John Napolitana

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    KYRIE KNEW HE WAS LEAVING THE WHOLE YEAR THATS WHY WHEN THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE TEAM HE IGNORED THE YOUNG GUYS THATS TOTAL SELFISHNESS MORE PROOF HE SHOWED MANY ACTIONS ALL YEAR THAT HIS HEART WASNT WITH THE TEAM

    David Stephens

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    It wasn’t his fault it didn’t work out. It was Brown, Tatum and rosier egos that was the cause. They wouldn’t let Kyrie lead and thought they were better than they were. I like how people try to blame kyrie for everything but are we going to ignore everyone else playing like shit in the playoffs.

    New York has now got a show

    Steve C

    (July 12, 2019 - 9:35 am)

    he talks like NY only has basketball. Yankees are blastin balls out of parks at record pace and he talks like the knicks are all that matters. Yankees run that town.

    Kemba a better point gaurd then Kyrie anyways. Tatum n Brown will be the two best players in this league for the next decade while Brooklyn loves to window shop and that usually only lasts for 2 or 3 years. Kyrie is retiring young so good luck with him Brooklyn 😂

    This should be in Movie Theaters! ESPN Could Charge for this narration!

    Kyrie wasn't shit before Bron and won't be shit till KD returns
