You can always count on noted flat-earther Kyrie Irving of the Boston Celtics for a hot take. Now he points out how he doesn't think of Christmas as a holiday.
“The hoopla on Christmas doesn’t really…I don’t really get into that. I don’t necessarily think of Christmas as a holiday. I’m just happy I get to be with my family, so looking forward to playing in front of the fans on the 25th and just playing against a high-level Washington team and going against great guys and then, of course, opening presents and that whole thing.” Irving said to the media after the game against the Knicks on Thursday.

It wasn't enough for Kyrie to not believe that the earth is round. Now he doesn't believe that Christmas is a holiday. At some point he needs to learn to keep his mouth shut. It's easily the biggest holiday of the year in the United States, no matter where you stand in your religious belief or non-beliefs. Most families get together, eat great food, exchange gifts and many go to church and do other things.
Why would anyone have something bad to say about Christmas? Kyrie Irving is a success on the basketball court, but the press conferences leave many scratching their heads.
