Kyrie Irving Sets The Critics Straight "Don't Play With Me"
Kyrie Irving took time to silence the haters whom have been saying his focus is gone - on Sunday he hopped on IG Live with his sister to discuss colorways for The Kyrie 6 and reaffirmed his passion for basketball straight up telling his critics "Don't play with me."
His sister Asia spoke about her inspiration for the colorways, whole Irving took time to speak about his career -
"It's about on the court, look at my resume, look at the classics, look at my art," he says. "I created it for going on 10-plus years now. Don't play with me. Don't play with what I do on a day in and day out basis to provide and go out there and create."
Irving has been very vocal about his support for Black women, and more recently produced #SayHerName: Breonna Taylor.
"It's a very sensitive time and it's very important to speak out on behalf of all our Black Queens," Irving said, according to Heavy. "It's my responsibility to be an acknowledgment of all the things that I can do to elevate what's happening and how I can make change; whether that is utilizing my voice or whether if it is being there and being present. But it's very important for me because I have a young daughter. She's four years old and I'm raising her in this climate, in this society right now, and to hear news like this that is going on and females' names are getting lost in the shuffle."
