Bone-Thugs-n-Harmony, Rapper Wish Bone Responds To Kyrie Irving, of the Cleveland Shade
Cleveland is the city...
As a native of Cleveland, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, rapper Wish Bone had strong feelings about the comments recently made by the former player of the Cleveland Cavaliers Kyrie Irving about his hometown not be a true sports city.
While talking to TMZ, Wish Bone suggested that Irving should stop being a jerk", and also defended his city of the rep.
"Don't be silly," Wish Bone said when asked about Irving's comments. "It's definitely wrong. Cleveland is one of the largest sports cities there are ... maybe he thinks that's going to be better out there for him. But time will tell."
After playing for the Cavs from 2011-2017, Irving is now a Boston Celtic, and will face off against his former teammates in the NBA season opener on Tuesday (17 October).
Wish Bone also predicted that Irving will receive a less-than-warm welcome in his return to Cleveland. "He's going to get boo-ed all day long," he said.
When asked about whether Irving might have problems in the Cleveland streets, Bone added, "That could certainly have some problems. To be sure. He speak ill of the land, something that could happen to him. We put hands on him."
During a conversation with journalists last week, Irving praised Boston, referring to it as a "prosperous city" and a "real" sports destination.
"And, then, move to the East Coast in Boston and it's so real [and] live. A constant, thriving city ... of Boston, I'm driving and [thinking], 'am I really playing in a real, live in the sports city?' And a great city," Irving said.
