Kyrie Irving has developed a reputation for saying things that draw attention and often times confusion.
For instance, he has said numerous occasions that he thinks Earth is flat.
Well, Irving has done it again and this time it involves Christmas. Irving's Celtics are playing the Wizards at 5:30 p.m. on Christmas Day, a huge stage for both teams. It's a nationally televised game on the biggest day of the NBA regular season.

Irving, though, has a different view of Christmas than most.
"The hoopla on Christmas, I don't really get into that," Irving told NBC Sports Boston after a loss to the Knicks. "I don't necessarily think of Christmas as a holiday. So, you know, I'm just happy I get to be with my family."
Not everyone celebrates Christmas, of course, and though he didn't give a full explanation, Irving could be saying this for religious reasons. But Christmas is objectively a holiday, whether you personally celebrate it or not.
Irving, however, did go on to say that he does like presents.
"Looking forward to playing in front of the fans on the 25th and just playing against a high-level Washington team," Irving said. "Going against great guys in there and then, of course opening presents and that whole thing."
At least we can agree that presents are awesome. As for Christmas, it will be just another day for Irving.
