Kyrie Irving and LeBron James presumably are not on the best of terms after the point guard forced his way off the Cleveland Cavaliers with a trade demand during the offseason.
But that doesn’t mean that Irving didn’t take an opportunity to tip his cap to him this week.
Although it depends how you define tip.
Because as the two continue with what can only be called a passive-aggressive and cryptic social media spat, Irving seems to have landed the latest salvo simply by using his head—as a billboard.
Following the Celtics’ preseason game Monday, Irving was spotted during a post-game interview sporting a hat bearing an interesting message that arguably could be inferred as a potshot at his onetime teammate.
The hat reads:
“Popularity contests are not truth contests.”
Actually, the only contests that matter in the NBA are played in June.
And only one, if either, of these guys will be representing the Eastern Conference in June.
That would finally settle this dispute.
