So that's why he wanted a new point guard...

Published by Axel on 18th February - 04:20 (CET)
The All-Star weekend has just begun. A full weekend filled of high fashion suits, incredible dunks and absent defense. The rookies will play against the sophomores (or with, I don't care know anymore), the east will play the west and Team USA will play the world.

Somewhere in the middle of this spectacle, there's another funny aspect that I always look forward to during the All-Star weekend. Just like us, most players enjoys a weekend away. They get to be around friends and family and just have a good time. Many of them therefore tends to relax a bit and spew all kinds of shit to the media.

This year, it started early, with the main focus being on Kyrie Irving. During a podcast released by the The Road Trippin' crew on Friday, Kyrie among other things shared his thought on the shape of the earth, which he believes to be flat (and so does Wilson Chandler)...
A lot of Cavaliers fans quickly came to his defense on social media to propose that this was actually fully out of context.

Kyrie Irving backes up his statement about the shape of the earth

Yeah, totally out of context. Irving then proceeded to proclaim that he is skeptical over the existence of the dinosaurs. He also managed to leave teammate LeBron James out of his all time team, going with MJ, Kobe, Ray Allen, KG and Shaq. Somebody on his PR team needs to shut this man up. At this point, it's getting clear why LeBron wants a another point guard. This guy is as dumb as it gets.

But fear not Kyrie, there's a man who yesterday told the ESPN that he wants you bad, and his name is Jimmy Butler. As a Bulls fan, I would be very okay with this, I'm accustomed to stupid point guards by now.

Apart from Kyrie Irving's media rampage, there has been a few other interesting quotes and replies, starting with Russell Westbrook who decided to answer every single question he got about KD by sharing his enthusiasm for the fashion weekend. I get him though, I'm also tired of it.

In an interview with ESPN, Paul George really seemed hesitant about staying with Indiana.

"Say what you want; I want to compete for something. It's frustrating just playing the game for stats or for numbers or to showcase yourself. Man, I want a chance to play for a chance to win a championship.

"I wanted to be the first and want to be the first to be able to bring a championship to Indiana. So that's still on my mind ... and something I definitely want to achieve in Indiana."


On the contrary, DeMarcus Cousins assured everyone that he wants to stay in Sacramento. I'm not so sure the fans feel the same.

Other than that, Giannis Antetokounmpo says that he rather win a title with Greece than with Milwaukee, Brandon Ingram stated the obvious fact that D'Angelo Russell "doesn't pass the ball too much.", and Klay Thompson lied about not smoking weed, and the weekend has just begun.
