Uncle Drew is officially back for the Boston Celtics. Or, at least that’s what Twitter believes following Kyrie Irving’s exceptional performance on Thursday night. After the All-Star point guard opted to cut his hair and lose the headband, he reverted back to the form which Celtics fans grew so fond of last season.
It seems crazy, but at the time this is being written, Irving has made 8-12 field goal attempts and 4-7 from beyond the arc for 25 points against the Detroit Pistons. Prior to this game, Irving had games in which he made 14.3, 31.3, and 20 percent from the field and only topped the 20-point mark in two of six games.
Is it a coincidence? Maybe, but Twitter doesn’t think so, and many Celtics fans believe haircut Kyrie is far superior to the one with a full head of hair. If you don’t believe it, see for yourself.
