The NBA recently released its list of the 75 greatest players in league history.
A lot of folks aren’t satisfied with the results of the list, and former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters is one of those people.
He feels that Kyrie Irving, who was left off the list, should have been included.
So kyrie irving not top 75 players of all time??? 🤔🤦🏾♂️

Irving is undoubtedly one of the most skilled players in the NBA today. Recently, however, he has made headlines for his decision not to get the COVID-19 vaccine. He likely won’t be able to play this season until he does.
Irving is a seven-time All-Star. He has career averages of 22.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game. He also has career shooting clips of 47.0 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from deep.
The 29-year-old, of course, was a massive part of the Cavs’ run to the NBA title in the 2015-16 season. The team almost certainly wouldn’t have won the championship without him.
It’ll be interesting to see if Irving responds to being left off the list. However, it seems like he has other things on his mind right now.
