Kyrie Irving just doesn't get the "hoopla."
Kyrie Irving doesn't have Dec. 25 marked in his calender as a holiday, and he doesn't get the "hoopla" surrounding Christmas.
The Celtics star was asked about how he feels about his first Christmas in Boston, and his answer was a lot less holiday spirited than anticipated.
"The hoopla on Christmas, I don't really get into that," Irving said. "I don't really necessarily think of Christmas as a holiday."
But he did add he was happy to be with his family.
"I'm just happy I get to be with my family so looking forward to that. Looking forward to playing in front of the fans and just playing against a high-level Washington team and going against great guys and then, of course, opening presents and that whole thing."
