Boston Celtics star point guard Kyrie Irving has addressed the went that went viral featuring himself and Kevin Durant talking in a tunnel at the All-Star Game. The video led to some serious speculation among NBA fans.

Some interpreted the video as Irving talking to Durant about the New York Knicks having two max salary slots this free agency.

New York is pretty clearly interested in signing both Irving and Durant this summer.

Irving addressed the video while speaking to reporters tonight. The star point guard didn't appear to be happy with the attention it received. "It's a video of me and one of my best friends talking," Irving said. "And then it turns out to be a dissection of a free-agency meeting? Do you get that? Like, do you get that? And then I'm asked questions about that? That's what disconnects me from all that s--t." The full back-and-forth with reporters appeared to be tense.

The Irving-Durant rumors aren't going away anytime soon and it doesn't appear that the Boston Celtics' point guard is happy with that.

Such is life as an NBA star, though.
