Kyrie Irving + Drake Turn Up In Toronto
Kyrie Irving has missed the Nets’ last three games, as he was given time off by the team for what they called “personal reasons.” Then a video surfaced of Kyrie celebrating his sister’s birthday at a Toronto club with Drake — and without any kind of face covering.
Kyrie Irving was seen partying in #Toronto alongside #Drake, and various Instagram stories back that up. This sucks for the #Nets, #KD and its fans. Maybe it’s time for #Kyrie to retire if he doesn’t want to be a #basketball player. Would be best for everyone involved. #nba
There’s also drama buzzing following Kyrie popping up n a video-call launch party for Manhattan District Attorney Democratic candidate Tahanie Aboushi.
Aboushi tweeted an image of the Zoom meeting, and Irving — who has been away from the Nets since last week — was among the over 200 volunteers and supporters who participated. The meeting, co-hosted by the actress Cynthia Nixon, began at 7 p.m. — about 40 minutes before the Nets tipped off against the Denver Nuggets at the Barclays Center. Irving, 28, has missed four straight games, including the outing Tuesday night. (New York Post)
