An interview by Carrie Irving, where he talks about his friend saying that he could be Lauryn Hill of the NBA, has now been changed.
About 4 years ago, Net Guard by Richard Jefferson and Channing Fry appeared on the Road Tripin Podcast. This podcast is widely remembered for Kairi’s flat earth comments, which you’ll find around the 15:23 timestamp in the video below.
The trio won the NBA championship together in 2016. Basketball has fewer ties than the players on the title winning team. So Irving probably felt completely comfortable when he was entering his future as an NBA player.

Kyrie has been universally blighted ever since for disinfection and the spread of pseudoscience. But this was far from the only interesting comment that night.
What Kyrie Irving said to Richard Jefferson and Channing Fry in the 2017 podcast
The conversation around Irving’s retirement claims went like this:
Kyrie: One of my best friends told me that he really thinks I can be the Lauryn Hill of the NBA and leave early before I even get to my prime.
Chanting: Barry Sanders
Kyrie: I don’t know what’s going to happen. I am 25 years old, so by the time I become 10 years old in the league, I am 29 years old. I’m not going to say I’m going to be Lauryn Hill of the game, but my best friend told me. … I love this game with all my heart, but there is still a lot of knowledge to be gained and there should be so much but it is not so.

At the time, what Irving had said seemed already odd. It would seem crazy to anyone that Irving would potentially pass into crores to star. But recent events may make people feel differently.
Irving is now under suspicion for a potentially broken Kovid protocol while celebrating with his family. They say that when it rains, it hurts people’s lives. Perhaps it is Irving’s time for trial and tribulation.
