Fans Chanting “MVP” as Kyrie Irving Scores Season High 40 points

Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets continued their fabulous run of form against the Boston Celtics. This matchup between the two Eastern Conference juggernauts was expected to be a close fixture.

However, due to the brilliance of Kyrie Irving, it never looked close. Uncle Drew single-handedly dominated their rivals in a comfortable 121-109 victory. Irving finished the game with a phenomenal season-high 40 points!

Irving has shown he is capable of such performances in the past. This was the first time he looked in the zone for the Nets. Moreover, Kyrie stepped up when the team needed him the most i.e. in the absence of Kevin Durant.

For the past few games, James Harden has been carrying the load for the team, while Kyrie took the backseat. But tonight, it was all about the dominance from the 28-year-old.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it feels like eons since fans have been allowed to step foot in the basketball stadiums. However, with the situation improving a little, a few teams have started to allow some fans.

Playing in front of fans is arguably one of the best feelings for an athlete. And when those fans chant “MVP” for your performance, it gets even better. The same thing happened to Kyrie tonight as a few fans started to chant “MVP! MVP! MVP!”, after his season-high 40 points performance.

Although Irving has achieved a lot in his career, an MVP award is missing from his resume. But considering the Nets are a super team, it’s hard to see him becoming the MVP.
