Kyrie Irving Denies Christmas Is A Holiday

Kyrie Irving has some interesting points of view.

Here's the Celtics' star on the shape of the earth:

"This is not even a conspiracy theory," Irving said during a podcast. "The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. ... It's right in front of our faces. I'm telling you, it's right in front of our faces. They lie to us."

Now he's taking on Christmas. He said this last night when asked about playing on Jesus's birthday.

“The hoopla on Christmas doesn’t really … I don’t really get into that. I don’t really necessarily think of Christmas as a holiday, so I’m just happy I get to be with my family, so looking forward to playing in front of the fans on the 25th and just playing against a high-level Washington team and going against great guys and then, of course, opening presents and that whole thing.”

It's a bit of a strange statement. He seems to be simultaneously saying he enjoys celebrating the holiday of Christmas while dismissing it as a holiday.

On the other hand, Christmas's status as a holiday is more debatable than the shape of the earth.
