Kyrie Irving just wants to be rent and mortgage-free.
The Brooklyn Nets guard is simply sensational when it comes to the game of basketball, but off the court, he can be quite weird and has a tendency to rub folks the wrong way.
Irving appears to be continuing to uphold this reputation as we enter the summer of 2022. With his offseason beginning early following the Celtics’ sweeping of the Nets, the All-Star point guard randomly took to Twitter and complained about having to pay to live on Mother Earth.
He does have somewhat of a point as, humans could’ve been living carefree on this floating rock. But not many people want to hear a multi-millionaire complaining about anything, especially when it comes to money.
For the first time ever, a gallon of regular gas now costs $5 on average nationwide, according to AAA. Gas prices have been rising steadily for the past few weeks and in turn have made everything else go up in price, as families across the United States continue to struggle to keep up.
And this isn’t just a USA thing either, as other countries are dealing with the same issues.
As for Irving, he has played in just 123 of 226 possible games since signing a max contract in 2019. The belief around the NBA is that he will indeed re-sign with Brooklyn, teaming up with Kevin Durant and presumably, Ben Simmons.
Irving played 29 games for the Brooklyn Nets last season and averaged 27.4 points and 5.8 assists per game.
