Since he’s a former teammate of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving was recently asked if he thought the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar is better than Michael Jordan.
Not exactly shocking that the Boston Celtics guard would be put in that position, but he’s been put in similar no-win situations before. Nevertheless, Irving told Hot 97 (via Yahoo Sports): All those comparisons are fun to talk about. It’s how intense it gets,” Kryie Irving began.
I hope that some individuals see, when they’re watching the games, just the appreciation for what’s happening.
Like if someone is playing extremely well, and it’s just like comparisons… Shout out to my man [Boston head coach] Brad Stevens on this.
He told me, ‘Comparison is the thief of joy.’ And that right there was one of the most profound things I’ve ever heard.”
Then he was pressed on the entire Michael Jordan versus LeBron James debate and said “NO” but followed that up with “No. No, I would say that he’s on his own lane,” he added.
Basically, Irving, our country’s most beloved and mostly harmless conspiracy theorist believes each man is how own or something.
Whatever. It honestly doesn’t matter what he thinks. Everyone already has their mind made up and he won’t change it. Credit: Clutchpoints.com
