For a guy who thought the Earth was flat, calling yourself a genius is a curious move.  

But that’s why Kryie Irving just did. 


“I’ve been playing basketball a lot longer than some of these people analyzing the game,” Irving says. “I’m an actual genius when it comes to this game.

“If you ask me about basketball, I will talk all day. If you ask me about spacing at the 3:33 mark of the second quarter, I will gladly explain it. I’ll tell you what plays worked, about adjustments we make. But when it comes to personal things, or comparing myself to my NBA brothers, like, ‘Do you think you are better than this guy?’ I’m out.”

With the series tied 1-1, who will take Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals when the Boston Celtics host the Milwaukee Bucks at 8PM ET?

The Basketball genius maybe?
