Dating back to his day(s) with Duke, Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving has been all about making that business decision.
This didn’t change with his Celtics taking on James Johnson and the Miami Heat Thursday evening. Giving up about five inches and 50 pounds, Irving wanted absolutely nothing to do with this Johnson dunk attempt.
Unfortunately for Uncle Drew, he couldn’t get out of the way fast enough. Instead, Irving will be hanging on posters around the world in short order.
Check out Johnson absolutely dunking on the champ.

That’s just filthy.
The good news? Irving was able to avoid being treated like a rag doll. Maybe Johnson pulled up a tad as a way to show some respect.
Even then, this was pretty darn embarrassing for Kyrie.
