Kyrie Irving Actually Forgot that Al Horford is on the Celtics Roster
Kyire’s sure had his bone-head moments. It’s led us to believe that the gifted athlete isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed. From publicly critisizing ex-teammate (and they guy that helped him get a ring, mind you) LeBron James, to his bizarre comments on the earth being flat.
Well, there’s been another incident. And it’s disrespectful AF.
After Sunday night’s loss to the Trail Blazers, Irving was back to his air-headed self, this time making a mess of a comment about veteran presence in the locker room:
Kyrie Irving: “I think it would be nice if we had someone that was a 15-year vet, a 14-year vet that could kind of help us race along the regular season and understand it’s a long marathon rather than just a full-on sprint.”

He continued to say, “We’re not as good as we think we are. It’s real basketball now, so it’s not just about the potential of the team or where we’ll be at the end of the season.”
Earth to Kyrie (pun intended)! Al Horford, a 32-year-old, 11-year NBA veteran is right there next to you, starting at the 5. He’s the most consistent player on your team, and arguably the most consistent center in the league of the last 10 years on both ends of the floor.
The disrespect is colossal.
But considering Al Horford’s maturity as a veteran, we’re sure he’d know how to handle the situation without causing a scene.
This just proves that Kyrie doesn’t think before he speaks, which is never a good trait to have.
