Charles Barkley's comments towards Kyrie Irving are ‘hypocritical’ – Stephen A. | First Take

  • Published on:  Thursday, March 7, 2019
  • Max Kellerman and Will Cain of First Take both do not have a problem with Charles Barkley’s comments saying Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving looks miserable because that is what Kyrie is showing on the court. Stephen A. Smith disagrees with Barkley, pointing out that Kyrie may look miserable when talking to the media, but that doesn’t mean he feels that way during games.

    The way media twists and sensationalizes everything I wouldn’t be excited to speak to them either. Just waiting for someone to say something they can twist into a headline. This whole conversation is a great example.

    Kyrie is just tired of the media dissecting and analyzing his every word....He can't even enjoy hanging with Kevin Durant....he feels his life is not the media's business....You can only understand if you are a star like him....I see why he is aggravated he doesn't have a personal life...he just wants to play basketball and be left alone...It's his life he doesn't owe the media or anyone else any explanations!!...

    Kyrie needs to get down on his knees thank god he was born with talent then thank the fans the media the sponsors all for giving him everything in the world he could ever want. The BOY is making bank for playing a schoolyard game. He’s no different than a kid playing video games for a living. And he doesn’t appreciate a damn thing. I have a greater appreciation for Lebron after seeing time and again what a real MAN is.
