Kyrie Irving Threw A Fit Because Jamal Murray Attempted To Continue Lighting Up The Celtics Like A Damn Christmas Tree After They Had Already Quit
You know, the question isn't really whether or not it's a "bullshit move" to try to pad your stats when the game has already been presumed over by both parties. The question is whether it's even more of a "bullshit move" to act like a baby in response to a meaningless prayer at a milestone when your team defense didn't show anywhere near as much intensity while getting completely dissected up to a point in which it was even a possibility.
In my opinion it most certainly is, as playing through the final whistle in front of home fans that unquestionably loved seeing their star shoot for a 50 spot doesn't make an opponent look any worse than them lifelessly standing around waiting to lose after having 48 hot ones dropped on their head. I hope getting all up in arms to deflect from the fact that his team got dismantled helped Kyrie Irving sleep better last night. However, if Jamal Murray really wanted to rub their nose in it he wouldn't have left his emasculation of the Irish up to luck and instead sliced through a defeated defense to slam home half a hundred. Can't imagine what kind of tantrum the Celtics' guard would have had on tap if a career-best performance was actually punctuated with prettier point total, as that would have hurt both his feelings and his pride.
