Kyrie Irving, the Nets’ top player, is no longer relevant on the floor. He has no option but to sit back and watch the playoffs from home now that his club has been eliminated from championship contention.
Off the field, though, the man is still causing a lot of havoc.
In a heated Twitter exchange, he recently made headlines for insulting the media, referring to them as “puppet masters.”
When I see my name or the names of my brothers and sisters in the news, I go back to all of my study on who they are. Their mission is to CONTROL PUBLIC PERCEPTION while earning from the entertainment value of criticizing, disparaging, and degrading people’s lives.
I aim my arrows at the puppet masters rather than the puppets. Puppets do nothing except go about society, attempting to win favor and sway public opinion. What an adventure! To these media conglomerates, my name is worth billions. My brothers and sisters that are involved in this know precisely what I’m talking about.
When Irving goes off on a tangent like this, people are usually quick to respond. That was also the case in this case.
Stephen A. Smith made the following harsh comment on ESPN’s First Take on Friday:
“We are watching one of the most insane athletes in the history of the United States of America. He’s lost because he’s always telling others that they’re lost. You may attempt to turn this problem into whatever you want, Kyrie. What it boils down to, and what everyone is concentrating on, is that you don’t want to go to work. You want to do what you want, when you want to do it, and the way you want to do it, all while working for someone else’s money. Then, when you’re called out on it, it’s us who are puppets. We want to watch Kyrie play, so he literally looks down on us. And we expect you to participate. The season is now over. He was given a six-month vacation.”
“So now you’re in a situation where you don’t want to work unless it’s something you want to do when you want to do it. You’ve completed the whole requirement. And even though you had some amazing games, you also had other games where you struggled, and he basically went on the record and said he didn’t have his legs. So, what exactly did you do with all of that free time? Isn’t it a little much to pose that question? Then you go on a Twitter tirade and start saying things like this — why? Because the media, which is paid to cover the activity, is interrogating you about the sport you choose to participate in!”
Irving is a fascinating figure. He has gone viral in recent years for a number of claims, including ones about the planet being flat, the Illuminati, and putting his own colleagues under the bus.
And now he’s conducting a new battle on the media, referring to them as “puppet masters” who can’t help but manipulate and bend the narrative.
Irving’s comments, as divisive as they are, may be forgiven if he was enjoying success on the court. However, with the Nets exiting the playoffs early for the third year in a row, one has to wonder whether Kyrie’s conduct is more of a disservice to his team than anything else.
