Kyrie Irving doubled down on his no-media stance yesterday, saying he doesn’t ‘talk to pawns’. Garry Kasparov found it in him to make jokes out of it.
For reasons perhaps known only to himself, Kyrie quoted Malcolm X regarding his media silence:
“I’ve had enough of someone else’s propaganda. I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for Justice, no matter who it’s for or against. I’m a human being first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”
Kyrie also had something to say about where he wanted the money from his fines to be used:
“I pray we utilize the ‘fine money’ for the marginalized communities in need, especially seeing where the world presently is.”

Finally, Kyrie came up with his latest bizarre statement:
“I do not talk to pawns. My attention is worth more.”
Garry Kasparov hilariously puts down Kyrie Irving
A man normally more concerned with Russian politics (Kasparov has been involved ever since his retirement from chess), the legend found the time to tweet about Kyrie. It makes for hilarious reading:
“There’s nothing wrong with talking to pawns. It’s when they start answering that you have a problem!”

Kyrie has received criticism from all quarters for his conduct over the past few months. He also caused a stir when he said Kevin Durant is the first teammate he’s trusted to make tough shots like himself. LeBron James responded to this recently on the Road Trippin’ podcast with Richard Jefferson.
It really is about time the point guard let his personality grow to where his on-court talent is right now. Irving has provided trolls endless material for nearly 4 years now. It’s getting to the point where no one will ever take him seriously.
