Kyrie Irving is known for causing controversy and adding fuel to the ongoing drama. Recently, he stepped into the drama between former NBA player Austin Rivers and Charlotte Hornets player Miles Bridges. Rivers discussed various topics related to the Hornets and the recent controversy surrounding Bridges.

During an interview with The Ringer, Austin Rivers criticized the Charlotte franchise’s decision to bring back Miles Bridges this season after he was out for the entirety of the last season due to legal troubles from domestic violence charges. Rivers argued that Charlotte needs to surround their franchise player, Lamelo Ball, with better talent to help him reach his full potential, rather than depleting it.

Bridges indirectly replied to Rivers on his Snapchat, suggesting that Rivers, as an outsider, didn’t fully understand the situation. He also challenged Rivers to watch his team and his chemistry with Lamelo next season, implying that he would prove him wrong. Kyrie Irving joined the conversation and replied to a tweet about the topic, suggesting that Bridges should tag Rivers if he was targeting him. Kyrie wrote, “Lol. Gotta love peer-to-peer hoop drama. @ who you’re talking about next time.”

Dallas Mavericks fans would hope that Kyrie doesn’t land himself in another controversy like he has previously. They would want him to play as many games as he can with Luka Doncic so their chemistry can develop and they can achieve the success they are touted to achieve. In regards to Bridges and the Hornets, their roster might be one of the worst in the league and they might end up in the top 5 of the lottery again next year.
