Dennis Schroder is completely done with rocking Kyrie Irving’s signature shoes and it has everything to do with their on-court altercation last month.
“Unfortunately, l can’t wear them no more. It’s not possible after what happened in the game.”
In the third quarter of the Lakers-Nets game on April 10th, Irving and Schroder were in each oother’s faces when the Brooklyn PG became enraged over the Lakers guard calling him the n-word.
“The N-word is a derogatory slur!” Irving said on Twitter, before adding, “Throw that N-word out the window, right alongside all of those other racist words used to describe my people.”
The 27-year-old made a YouTube video this week revealing his insane shoe collection, but things got a bit crazy when he came time to show off his pairs of Kyries.
“Kyrie Irving — I have a lot of his shoes,” said Schroder, who went on to say he has between 30-to-40 pairs of Irving’s kicks. “Unfortunately, I can’t wear them no more. It’s not possible after what happened in the game”
“I can not do it. Not going to wear it again.”
Instead, Schroder says he’s now going to do a giveaway to unload his Kyries.
“I’ll donate,” Schroder said, “so text me.”
