Kyrie Irving is currently in the news for being the root of all the drama taking place within the Brooklyn Nets organization. Due to Irving's shenanigans, many believe that Kevin Durant requested a trade and will soon be on his way out of the Nets.
On the other hand, after weeks of drama Kyrie decided to opt into his $37 million player option, but it was already too late by then. So in the coming weeks, it is all but certain that both Irving and Durant will be donning new jerseys for the 2022-23 NBA season.
But today our focus is not on this season. Instead, we are focusing on the 2018 NBA All-Star game introductions. It was none other than the ever-so-funny Kevin Hart at the helm.
Hart decided to come up with a unique way to introduce each player on the NBA All-Star team. Almost every player there laughed it off and understood it was a joke.
But it felt like Kyrie Irving, who used to be a member of the Boston Celtics at the time, didn't like Hart's introduction. We are sure you must remember how Kyrie openly admitted that he believes that the Earth is flat.
Well, that's all Hart needed as he pointed that out while introducing Kyrie Irving to the audience.

"This gut also proves that leaving Duke early is a mistake. Not only does he think that the Earth is flat but he also thinks that Elvis works at a Target down street from his house. Give it up for Kyrie Irving."
Looking at Irving's face, it was obvious that he didn't like this joke by Hart and was visibly upset.
But that didn't stop Hart from continuing to roast Kyrie. Even when Kyrie was coming off the stage, Hart once again pointed out to him that the Earth is not flat. Several NBA fans reacted to the clip, while one pointed out that LeBron, AD, Russ, and KD were all laughing during their roasts, but that wasn't the case with Kyrie.
