While joining Darryl “Truck” Bryant on Instagram Live, Kyrie said that it’s always a tough battle when he’s facing his fellow PG from the New York City metro area.
“I want that matchup. I want K-Walk,” Kyrie said. “Me and K-Walk. We have to.” (starting at 2:57):
You know all these players, so I’m going to ask you what matchups you like.
Kyrie: “You know, we never talk about this. Me and K-Walk, I want that matchup. I want K-Walk. Me and K-Walk. We have to.”
Hold up, hold up. Yo, say that one more time.
Kyrie: “Me and K-Walk, that’s my matchup. I want K-Walk. That’s my big bro. I want K-Walk, bro [laughs]. That’s my big bro.
“You know we got mutual respect, but I know everybody wants to see it—out of New York, New Jersey. Every time we play against each other it’s always a game. He gave us 40, I gave him 40. Back-and-forth, that’s just part of where we grew up.”
