There’s no clue what the two are talking about. One can only imagine.
Several fans, however, had a strong hunch that it may be about Irving’s ailing knee that has sidelined him for several games. To recall, Uncle Drew last played Irving last played on March 11 against the Indiana Pacers where he left after just 16 minutes of game time. He recorded with seven points, four rebounds, and one assist. For the season, Irving is logging in 24.4 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game
As reported by Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, Irving is set to travel to seek a second opinion on his knee.

In a report by ESPN, Danny Ainge discussed the possibility of Kyrie Irving going through a surgery.
“He has a surgery that may need to happen,” Ainge told the 98.5 The Sports Hub. “But maybe not this summer, maybe the following summer or maybe the summer after that. I think that he could probably do it any time he wanted but I’m not sure that it’s needed at this moment.”
Whether or not the two are talking about basketball, it’s always good to see NBA stars outside the arena not donning their jerseys.
The Celtics are currently 47-23 right now for second place in the Eastern Conference. There’s a good chance that they’ll lock in the second seed come playoff time. Hopefully Kyrie will be healthy by then.
