During a postgame interview after a loss to the Bucks, Celtics star Kyrie Irving donned a New York Times t-shirt. Could this be a sign?
After a tough loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics superstar Kyrie Irving wanted to send a different message — that “Truth: It’s more important than ever.”
That slogan comes from The New York Times, which is also sold in shirt form, one that Kyrie rocked the previous night. So, what exactly is he trying to get across to us? Is it the fact that he could be a huge supporter of the Times? Who are constant targets of the “fake news” tagline?
It could be.
Or, it could be a sign that Irving wants to be part of the New York Knicks when he becomes a free agent this summer? In fact, that’s what some hopeful Knicks fans wanted to confirm in the mentions of Tom Westerholm, the Celtics beat writer for MassLive who tweeted to the world Kyrie’s choice of attire:
Yes, we are officially at the time when fans of NBA teams who are nowhere near the playoff hunt, are searching on the tea leaves any possible clue as to what free agents will sign where this summer.
The Knicks are going to be huge players in the summer, and their name has long been rumored as one of the preferred destinations for Irving. After rocking The New York Times shirt, it’s easy to see why many Knick fans are coming to the conclusion that, since he wore a t-shirt of the Times, then it’s clearly a sign from the NBA Gods that Kyrie really, really wants to play basketball at Madison Square Garden.
Or, he could just be a huge Times fan? That’s also a great possibility.
