Kyrie Irving and Anthony Edwards are having verbal war for long

Kyrie Irving and Anthony Edwards have been engaged in a heated verbal war leading up to and during the Conference Finals between the Dallas Mavericks and the Minnesota Timberwolves. 

Edwards' bold declaration of "I got Kyrie" before the series commenced seemed to have backfired as Irving dominated Game 1, scoring thirty points and leading the Mavericks to a victory. 

Analysts and fans alike were taken aback by Irving's exceptional performance, particularly against Edwards' 1-on-1 defense.


In response to Edwards' statement, Kyrie Irving addressed the situation in an interview, expressing that he used it as motivation for his standout performance in Game 1. 

During his feature on Inside the NBA, when Charles Barkley asked Irving for a reaction, he said, “Used it as motivation. When I was sitting at home and I saw it, I was like, this is a nod of respect. Also, I knew what type of game was going to be in Game 1 and for the rest of the series.”

However, keeping his same composure off the field, the Mavs star added: “So, you’re right, I was at home with my family watching Game 7 and ANT comes out and says, ‘I got Kyrie,’ but also that’s a ‘no fear’ mentality, and that’s why we love ANT. So coming out tonight, I knew that he was going to pressure me a little bit.”
