Video: Celtics’ Kyrie Irving gets roasted by kid about Duke’s loss to Gonzaga
In the video below, it can be heard that the kid poked fun at Kyrie Irving due to his alma mater Duke being beaten by Gonzaga two weeks ago.
The people around then laughed so loud because of the jab that the kid threw on the 26-year-old Celtics star.
The Blue Devils lost a tight one against the Bulldogs, 89-87. It was a battle of two 5-0 teams, but in the end, it was clear which of them was the better group.
NBA prospect Zion Williamson had another outstanding game in that loss with 22 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists.
Kyrie Irving used to play for Duke in his lone NCAA season. He was a strong candidate for the Freshman of the Year award in 2011, but a toe injury limited him to only 11 games.
“Uncle Drew” averaged 17.4 points, 5.1 assists, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.5 steals per game during his time with Duke.
Despite suffering a season-ending injury a year before, the Cleveland Cavaliers drafted Kyrie Irving as the first overall pick in 2011. He was traded in 2017 and is now a member of the Celtics’ roster.
With a 13-10 record, the Celtics are currently sixth in the Eastern Conference, six games behind the league-leading Toronto Raptors.
You can’t roast him, however, due to his current performance as he has led the Celtics to three consecutive wins. During that span, he averaged an impressive 25.3 points per game.
