Over the past five years, Kyrie Irving has been on the backend of some hateful comments by the media for the way he carries himself along his journey. In Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson’s interview with Kyrie Irving’s godfather, Rod Strickland, the former NBA great touched on why he isn’t really surprised on why some people react to Kyrie negatively.

“Kyrie’s just different,” said Strickland. “He thinks different and I think people don’t like that. We live in a world now where everybody thinks if you say this I’m supposed to go along with you and if I’m against that, then I’m wrong — You can just watch him play basketball and tell that he’s different.”

In addition to the topic of his godson, Rod Strickland picked the Los Angeles Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets to match up in the NBA Finals.
