Kyrie’s Quotes, a Sampling

Humans are by nature hypocritical beings, seething masses of sometimes conflicting and contradicting opinions. For example, War Hero and questionable human, these terms are not mutually exclusive, despite our attempts to argue them as such. Truth is murky, but that doesn’t mean we can’t loudly tout our complete knowledge of a man’s inner and outer workings  after skimming 5 minutes of condensed interviews with them.

With that being said, following are some quotes from the chakra-wearing, Bible-toting, Instagram-Conspiracy Subscribing, cold-blooded killer on the court, Kyrie Andrew Irving, via Sports Illustrated, Road Trippin and yes, even Brainy Quotes.

On Music:

  • “I’ve been musically inclined since I picked up an instrument in the fourth grade. I just really appreciate music. I love to listen to it; I love to sing…I just developed it over time, honestly, just listening. I’m a great listener to music.”
  • ” ‘Grease’ is an awesome movie. I wish they’d make a new one, more for our time. The graphics are terrible when you look back on it.”

On Lebron, Cleveland, and Championships

  • “That’s the type of guy that I want to be with every single time I’m going to war. … You move to the front line with a guy like that, and you want to bring your game up to another level. I know that if we continue to be with one another and keep utilizing one another, man, the sky’s the limit.”
  • “My eventual goal is to win a championship. And before I retire, I just want to win a championship. That’s it.”
  • “I do feel like a Clevelander. Every time, when people ask me, I automatically say, My home is Cleveland.” *
  • “When it applies to the Olympics and making a decision, I have to claim Australia as my country.”

On a Singular Focus, and, well, also other focuses

  • “My focus is basketball, and that’s it.”
  • “I want to be on the cover of GQ.”
  • “I went to my agent and told them, ‘I want to be on another Disney show.’ “

On His Movie

On Necessities

  • “I don’t leave home without my Skullcandy Crushers. I don’t leave home without my Bible, without my phone, and without my computer.”

On a Flat Earth We’ll keep this one short

  • “This is not even a conspiracy theory. The Earth is flat. It’s right in front of our faces. I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us. What I’ve been taught is that the earth is round. But if you really think about it from a landscape of the way we travel, the way we move and the fact that, can you really think of us rotating around the sun and all planets aligned, rotating in specific dates, being perpendicular with what’s going on with these ‘planets’?” (Road Trippin)
  • “I’m asking you like this. Do you know they filmed the actual spacecraft leaving from the moon, right? Who the hell is filming that? You tell me.”


  • “It was all an exploitation tactic. It literally spun the world—your guys’ world—it spun it into a frenzy and proved exactly what I thought it would do in terms of how all this works. It created a division, or, literally stand up there and let all these people threw tomatoes at me, or have somebody think I’m somehow a different intellectual person because I believe that the Earth is flat and you think the world is round. It created exactly that. It became like, because I think different, does that knock my intellectual capacity or the fact that I can think different things than you?”
  • “I feel absolutely amazing. My energy, my sleeping patterns, just my intellect and everything that I’m awake to now—I’m very much aware.”
  • “I think that the most important thing that I strive to live by is extremely by truth and by consistently giving others the truth, without any judgment, without constraints, without anything extra except the understanding that I see you. I have family members who come from knowing energy, and it was passed along to me.”
  • “Just a lot of heart, you know, being protected by some incredible energies.” (in response to a win)
  • “I see you. I see everyone. More than just your physical presence, I see your energy. I feel it. I know it.
  • “Oh, if you’re very much woke there’s no such thing as distractions” (Directed toward Steven A)
  • “I have a presence and aura about me that’s very reality-based. It didn’t come in the form of living in this false world and not being able to tell the truth to somebody.”

On Brad Stevens

  • “Brad fits perfectly in terms of that because he has an intellectual mind and is an intellectual human being. It was something I was unbelievably craving in terms of what I wanted for my career.”

On Cows not Being Real

  • “Steak? Nah, I don’t eat that. It doesn’t come from anything natural, so why would I eat it?

On Aliens Being Real

  • “The fact that they can make all these movies with alien descriptions. They’re not just going on strictly brainpower and this is just creative things that we’re going to put out to everybody. For what? All to put an alien movie out, for what?”


Well? Something must be on your mind!
