It's safe to say that legendary NBA big man Kareem Abdul-Jabbar isn't the biggest fan of Kyrie Irving.

The legendary Los Angeles Lakers star sounded off on the Brooklyn Nets point guard this week.

Abdul-Jabbar is clearly frustrated by how many young fans look up to Irving.

"Let’s make sure our kids have the right kind of role models. Kyrie Irving should reconsider his behavior because young people look up to him," Abdul-Jabbar writes.

Irving began to face criticism during the pandemic, when he sounded off on getting vaccinated. He's also made questionable comments about the Earth being flat, among other things.

But he's very good at basketball, so he's always going to have people looking up to him.
