Kyrie Irving Twitch Stream Causes Stir

Former Cavaliers, Celtics, Nets, and current Mavericks All-Star guard Kyrie Irving caused more reaction last night after a live recording on twitch. New York Basketball shared a video of part of his stream. 

Irving joined the Mavericks via trade on Feb 6. The Mavs acquired the eight-time All-Star along with forward Markieff Morris for Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, a 2029 first-round pick, and two future second-round picks. 

Since joining the NBA for the 2011-2012 season as a first-round draft pick of the Cavaliers, Irving has been one of the most talented players in the NBA. His career scoring average of 23.4 points, 5.7 assists, and 88.5% free throw percentage are among the best in the NBA. In addition, he hit arguably the biggest basket in Cavs history to defeat the Warriors in Game 7 of the 2016 Finals.

It’s the off-the-court and other things that have happened that make his story more than his NBA accomplishments. The clip above is just one of a number of those shared on social media. Mavs fans likely wish he would just focus on the game and not the off-the-court content. 

Dallas is just 5-6 since Irving joined the team. They are currently eighth in the Western Conference standings and doing their best to hold off the hard-charging Lakers.
