Kyrie Irving is “very much woke.”

So woke, in fact, he has become a vegan.

Irving, via Tom Haberstroh of Bleacher Report:

“It works,” Irving tells B/R Mag. “I mean, I’m not eating a whole bunch of animals anymore. Once you become awake, you don’t see that stuff anymore.”

Veganism is fine. John Salley has long-advocated for NBA players to become vegan. Damian Lillard has embraced the diet. Haberstroh explores it in depth.

But “Once you become awake, you don’t see that stuff anymore”?

Stay weird, Kyrie.

At least he and the Celtics are playing so well, his quirkiness is lovable. If he and Boston fall off, his shtick might not seem so amusing.
