Kyrie Irving is one of the most talented scorers in the NBA. He's got one of the best handles ever and has shown that he can get buckets every night out there, which is why the Brooklyn Nets spent so much money on signing him last season.
Yet, Irving missed most of last year with injuries, called some of his teammates out, and even tried to boycott the bubble in Orlando despite stating that he wanted to participate at first. That's just the kind of player he's been over the past 3 or 4 years.
And now, Irving has once again done it all about him, citing 'personal reasons' to miss the past three games without offering any kind of explanation whatsoever or even saying when he'll be ready to come back.
Personal Reasons? Kyrie Irving Spotted Partying And Breaking NBA Protocol
That's why it was kind of shocking when Billy Reinhardt of SB Nation posted a video of Kyrie Irving partying with a lot of people next to his sister Asia. It's also worth noting that his sister and father have birthdays this week.
Given the number of people in the videos, it's obvious that Kyrie will have to undergo a quarantine according to the NBA's medical protocols, meaning he's set to miss even more games for the guys to actually pay his salary.
That's another massive example of Kyrie's antics. He's always trying to be above everybody else, acting like an enlightened guru with all the answers about what's going on around the universe, yet he's just like any other athlete.
Don't get me wrong, he's entitled to being with his family and having a good time, but he owes it to his employers, his teammates, and the organization to at least give them a heads up about what's going on, especially when they're struggling to win games without him.
