Listen: Kyrie Irving, Stephen A Smith And Charles Barkley discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Van Gundy Scott's the floor is yours. I mean, give me a break. Seriously. Give me a break with Kyrie Irving complaining and Adam silver, backing them up Dan import of the outside world as Adam silver likes to call it. Okay. And here's the deal. Here's what fans don't wanna hear fans never want to hear this that a guy a fan who was working nine to five maybe working two jobs making maybe working three jobs to make ends meet. They don't want your guy. More four jive six here. Jobs doing man who done seven jobs jobs, and he's all teacher. I mean, you know, there are people working day shifts coming home make dinner, then go work hauling you get what those people don't want to hear Dan what they don't wanna hear Kyrie Irving as you are miserable. Because there are a couple of microphones in your face that you get in by the way, just by saying you're gonna resign with the Celtics or you're going to go elsewhere. You can end the entire discussion. What they don't want to hear is a guy who's worth hundreds of millions of dollars that he's miserable. Who's fight around. Private jets. Staying in the best hotels having the time of his life at it's not just kyri. It's all then fans. Don't wanna hear. I'm sorry. They should be shamed. To themselves. And people were willing to misconstrue his words misinterpreted for their own devices and find a reason to criticize him, so he custom up his hold on. Hold on. Hold on his the difference. Charles Barkley could curse you out and still go and have a TV gig and all of this stuff. Cari, Irvine is in a different situation. He's playing he's approaching free agency. Every I'm not saying I'm not saying he doesn't topic and he's not fired up enough. Wait, a minute, wait a minute. But if you anytime you start saying nice on the second do God's came stronger there. Then Stephen a Smith did on the subject of Kyrie Irving, film and stuff like that. And people thought that he wasn't unhappy. No, he's a bit more focused his attention and things and what he cared about was different than of the people carryover may not be miserable. At all. He might be miserable. Having to talk to the media. But he might not be. Miserable in any other way. But because he doesn't project in the way that we think he should all of a sudden we wanted to end you agreed with Charles Barkley's. Kyri Irving seems like one of the most miserable human beings on earth. Stephen a Smith says you're wrong. Well, I mean, neither one of us knows for sure. But but look he certainly when he talks does not sound like a happy person. He does not sound like he's thrilled with the situation. He's in Boston. He does not sound like he has great love or respect for his teammates. You're all taking a baby you keep in mind, curry Irving. He's a thespian. Okay. He's been acting in movies. He's got other movie projects out there. He faked the whole flatter thing to get you all talk. And and this is just another phase in get people talking about Kyrie's master plan. I want to get people talking about the empire ring. Resume of STAN Van Gundy transition. You have a memorable story for us before I go few with my own story that has to be better, even though I don't want to over promise and under deliver. Yeah. Well, here here's mine. So as I said, I would start the morning. Unpire and kids games starting it. I I would have a nine o'clock game. And then I think a ten thirty game. So I got nine o'clock game on Saturday. And there was this team managed by sort of an infamous pair of twins in our town in Martinez, California, these guys they were like five foot three, but really strong had been great high school football players and everybody knew him around town because every Friday and Saturday night, they would go out get drunk getting a fight get thrown in jail.."
