The Weird, Horrible Elephant in the Room

Most Duke fans have already seen this, so I suppose there's no point in ignoring it. There's a twitter account called "DukeLvr1989," operating under the name 'Melissa Rodriguez,' and he or she or they are conducting a campaign of terror against Kyrie Irving.

There's really no other way to put it. The account started during the Duke-Michigan game, and to date there are only 50 tweets. The first 10 or so are mostly re-tweets of players or other people associated with Duke basketball, with a couple "Kyrie sucks!" messages thrown in for good measure. Then she posted this:

@kyrieirving you are the biggest inconsiderate low life i have ever seen in my life!!!! thank God Elizabeth isnt here to see you!less than a minute ago via web


Elizabeth Irving was Kyrie's mother, and she died before he was six years old. After that message, Kyrie started responding. He told "her" (I'll be using female pronouns for the sake of readability, though it's impossible to know who or what we're dealing with here) that she could say what she wanted about him, but not to bring his family into it. He used her twitter name, cluing in the rest of the world. He told everyone to read her tweets, presumably so they could all see the awful messages she was posting and rally to his defense. Several players and innumerable fans messaged him with support. Kendall Marshall said, "Keep ya head, bro."

DukeLvr1989 knew she'd found a soft spot. Being merciless, she began to attack the mother issue with tweets like this:

Kyrie can go to the league and make millions thats so great for him ... too bad it wont bring his mother back SHES DEAD DEAD DEADless than a minute ago via web


Around that time, Kyrie Irving erased his twitter account. You can't find him on that particular medium any longer. Then DukeLvr posted his cell phone number. Then she posted a picture of him shirtless. Then she threatened to post sexual text message conversations she'd had with him. Then she threatened to post "a photo of Kyrie Irving's dick."

These latest promises haven't been fulfilled, but it's easy to see why they were made. If Kyrie quit twitter, and stopped responding to the dead mother bait, the natural way to keep him invested was to inspire fear. Which meant threatening the release of pictures or conversations. It wouldn't be enough to just post them outright; to keep him on a hook, a real sadist knows to create anxiety by way of anticipation. What comes next? Impending doom is usually worse than actual doom.

Nobody knows why this twitter account was created. Common speculation is that Kyrie had some variation of a one night stand with her or one of her friends. That seems pretty logical, but it's also just a guess. She could be obsessed. Maybe she's never met him. Maybe she's an opposing fan trying to get under his skin. As I've said, maybe she is a he, or a they.

In 50 posts, Melissa Rodriguez has accumulated over 400 followers. An account called SportsByBr00ks, mimicking the website of the same name, followed her and encouraged her to post more. The internet, in all its labyrinthine strangeness, is creating confused cycles of attention and showering them back on the originator. Her impact, unfortunately, has been felt. We'll never know the extent, but it has taken some toll on Kyrie. It's easy to forget that he's a teenager who made a teenage error. His chief mistake was responding to her in the first place. It gave her a jolt of instant niche-fame, and led to his retreat from twitter. That, combined with the awful audacity of her message, has transformed this story into something "significant."

And it's something that could affect the team. Or at least Kyrie. And yes, I realize I'm contributing to the story by discussing it in this space. But frankly, I waited this thing out. I thought about writing something Monday, and I thought about writing something Tuesday, but I hoped it might die out. It didn't. It's only gotten bigger. For obvious reasons, people are fascinated. We're used to watching and considering these players as separate entities, human beings whose main function in our lives is to play a game. We can praise and criticize them, but it's difficult to imagine that we'll ever influence them, or interact with them in any but the most superficial manner. But Melissa Rodriguez, whoever she is, reached Kyrie Irving. She reached him with a profound, ugly kind of negativity. In a small way, or maybe even a big way, her actions will widen the chasm between player and fan, between player and media, and erode any last vestiges of trust that existed in the frail bond connecting the two.

Nobody, beyond the very psychopathic, thinks they're evil. That's one of the secrets of life. The Nazis thought they were on the right path. The men who flew the planes into the twin towers thought they were doing God's work. We're conditioned to rationalize and justify our own actions in an evolutionary process, ensuring that to a greater or lesser extent, we love ourselves and want to keep on living. Self-belief maintains us.

So. Melissa Rodriguez thinks she's operating from a place of righteous indignation. But as near as we can define something as evil, it has to be this: the continuous, conscious attempt to terrorize another person. It's a sick, corrupted power game, and it stems from a place of insecurity. If you strive for painful, prolonged control over another person, something in you is rotten. There can be no moral relativism in that regard; we're given a measure of freedom as people, and trying to take that from someone else is as near as we can come to absolute evil.

Melissa Rodriguez, I hope you read this. You're falling fast from whatever grace you believe in, and that's a critical mistake. Did Kyrie Irving sleep with you? Did he make a promise he couldn't keep? Sorry, but you're not the first girl to be left cold by an immature athlete. You're not the first to have your heart broken. Are you an opposing fan trying to create strife among the team? Believe me, any success you find won't be worth the price you've already extracted from yourself.

We all live with pain. That takes a long time to learn, but it's the truth; even the people we hate live with pain. I don't know exactly who you are, DukeLvry1989, and I don't know your motivations. But what you're trying to do is very, very common. You're trying to lessen your own pain by making life worse for someone else.

Take it from someone just a little bit older- this will not ease your burden. I've seen it a thousand times, and it never works.

Tomorrow, I'll be back to talk Arizona and the Sweet 16. In the meantime, a couple announcements.

1 - My friend Mike is running a fantasy baseball league. It's a keeper league, and he needs three more interested players. I'll be in the league as well. The draft is tomorrow at 8pm, before the Duke game. Send an e-mail to the address you see to your left if you're interested. Please don't join if you plan on drafting Robinson Cano.

2 - I think we need some comedy, right? Right. Thanks to Adam for cluing me in to this video:


Best part: 0:39.

3 - Here's something redeeming on twitter: Norm MacDonald. The guy could not be more hilarious, and it's not just because I read everything he posts in that classic, deadpan inflection. Nope, he's elevated his game; things keep getting weirder and more hilarious, and you never know what to expect. Lately, he's taken to posting these strange rhyming couplets, like so:

Kervorkain's a killer, Teresa is a saint. She is what I isn't and he is what I aint.less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®


He's been doing okay in his bracket picks, too, considering the distractions of the world:


4 - It doesn't get much better than CNNSI's Luke Winn at the tourney. That was his Sunday wrap-up, and you can find the previous wrap-ups linked at the end of the article.

Here's his take on Duke:

Not that we’re allowed to re-pick brackets, but my new Final Four matchups would be Ohio State-Duke and Kansas-Wisconsin, with the best regional final being staged between the Blue Devils and San Diego State. The Dukies who showed up on Sunday wouldn’t be capable of beating San Diego State in an Anaheim final … but they are capable of getting past the Aztecs if Kyrie Irving makes progress over the next week. SDSU’s front line is unreal, but it doesn’t have the guard-play to match what the Blue Devils can potentially get out of Nolan Smith and Irving.

This, unfortunately, is what everyone will be concluding after the near-comeback. But if we'd just played our style and taken down the Wolverines by 20, I don't think anyone would be so eager to write us off. Also, I know we're all supposed to be doing backflips over Ohio State, but let's see how they do against Kentucky first.

See you tomorrow for the Duke-Zona preview and Sweet 16 picks.

  1. I'm really glad there was no twitter/youtube/facebook/cameraphones when I was a teenager.

  2. I think this Melissa Rodriguez (that is certainly not this person's real name) has us all fooled. It smells of an impostor from a mile away. There's absolutely no grounds to speculate that s/he even met Kyrie. The picture she posted of Kyrie was a picture Kyrie himself posted on Twitter a year ago after he got a tatoo on his chest in memory of his mother. The phone number she posted was not his, it's been confirmed. This is so lame, because there's really no way to identify this idiot.

    Who would pose as a Duke fan and harass Kyrie? I have a couple of guesses, as far as fan bases go...

    ReplyDelete
  3. Anon, you're correct about the photo, but the phone # she was posted was his, I can confirm that.

    -Shane

    ReplyDelete
  4. Sorry, that comment sounded more mysterious than I intended. A friend of mine who's dealt with the team before gave me Kyrie's # literally a week before this happened. I've never spoken to Kyrie, or anything like that. But the # she posted matched up with the # the friend gave me.

    -Shane

    ReplyDelete
  5. So it was his number. For me, my immediate thought is "Oh, this is a case of an opposing fan getting his hands on Kyrie's #" (like when JJ had to change his # when a Maryland fan found out) instead of "Oh, this is a girl who got rejected by Kyrie"

    ReplyDelete
  6. You could easily be right. The mom stuff just seems like a really extreme length to go to if the person was just an opposing fan. Maybe I'm being naive, but that felt to me like there had to have been a more personal connection.

  7. Wasn't there a second picture, a screenshot of them videochatting? This is definitely a woman scorned of some type.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The second link "she" posted was a gay porn link. I'm almost positive this is a fan. And if you don't think a UNC fan would post this you haven't met the worst of them. I think this poster, like you said, found the soft spot and it went to his or her head. Than the mother references got worse. Why would an ex call his mother "Elizabeth" instead of "your mom"? Because some idiot Google'd it and saw it.

  9. "Did Kyrie Irving sleep with you? Did he make a promise he couldn't keep? Sorry, but you're not the first girl to be left cold by an immature athlete. You're not the first to have your heart broken."

    (The following comment, offered solely for the sake of argument, presumes that the "scorned lover" scenario is accurate -- we all know that it may not be so.) I certainly don't condone "Melissa's" actions, but you seem to be rather cavalier about athletes using women for sex. Just because she isn't the first woman to be used for sex doesn't invalidate her anger, despite the fact that she is clearly crossing the line with her chosen form of retaliation.

    Again, I reiterate that my comment is based on the (probably incorrect) assumption that Kyrie slept with/ditched her, and I maintain my outrage about the content of her Twitter posts.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Kyrie's last 2 posts before he deleted his twitter account that can be found in google cache are:

    1 - anyway...my birthday is in 2 days...yessir!!!
    2 - @ihatemisshawaii thank you...i appreciate all this

    Looking at the ihatemisshawaii twitter account he directed his last comment to and her timeline of comments over the past few weeks along with her recent love to hate blog postings...hmmm...

    ReplyDelete
  11. I am not even a Duke fan I am a UNC fan but this is obviously just stupid. I personally think that this girl was probably a Gold digger who thought she was going to get to go along for the ride when Kyrie signs that rookie contract. Then he dumped her and now she is getting "revenge" but we all know Kyrie will amount to something while this is the height of this trolls fame.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Shane, I am not saying I am right, but fans bringing up deceased parents has come up before. After the Maryland game this year, some MD fan tweeted some evil things about Nolan's father. Nolan called him out and the guy hid his timeline.

    I really do think this is an opposing fan. To your point, who creates a bogus account on the day of the Michgan game just to harass Kyrie? Unless we get an IP address or something concrete about this person, I can't assume anything but it sure smells of a stupid opposing fan.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I agree with the anonymous above that talked about the @ihatemisshawaii thing. I noticed all of that too. Now she has an arrest warrant out for someone and was headed for Durham last I saw...

    Also Shane, the DukeLvr1989 person has seen your blog post today. She quoted it on her Twitter.

    This whole thing is just so bizarre.

  16. As the playwright William Congreve once said, "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."

    I guess the same could be said about disgruntled/deranged college basketball fans and twitter enthusiasts.

  17. This is merely a loser's pathetic attempt at relevance stemming from some sort of deep seeded insecurity. My take - this could happen to anyone in the spotlight.

    The actions of this person are allowed to remain relevant because well-meaning people like us inadvertantly add fuel to the fire by recognizing their existence. I propose we cut off the air supply to this brush fire by no longer acknowledging it as significant.

    Kyrie, if you're reading this, know that your true fans have your back. We love you buddy.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I know it is a little late now as deleting it wouldn't be a good idea at this point, but I wish you hadn't endorsed (even as one of a couple possible options) the "Jilted lover" scenario. I don't think that is what is going on at all. I think that is the story the guy making these posts wants everyone to believe, but this is definitely a misguided fan of another team. If we are going to raise this guy's profile anymore (which seems to be what he wants, looking at his responses on his page), I don't think we should be validating the myth he is putting forward. Even peripherally, I think this is giving him too much credibility.

    However, I completely agree that this person is sick, twisted, and needs help. Unless Kyrie murdered someone in Dukelvr's family, I cannot think of anything that justifies this kind of action.

    ReplyDelete
  19. All this is just more fodder for her notoriety. She/he is already bragging about how you wrote a whole blog entry devoted to her. Kyrie already deleted his account to avoid a tit for tat situation, the rest of the team isn't responding online either like they did initially.

    You're just giving her so much more clout than she warrants, Shane.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Good comments as usual. I'm going to respond to a couple.

    Forrest - I'll admit that the jilted lover scenario is the one I believe, but I wouldn't say I 'endorsed' it. It would only surprise me mildly if I was wrong, and I think that came across in the post.

    Anon just above - Kyrie gave her the clout by responding to her and then letting her chase him off twitter. My ego would love to believe that I "made" this story, but that's far from the truth.

    Anon that said this: "you seem to be rather cavalier about athletes using women for sex. Just because she isn't the first woman to be used for sex doesn't invalidate her anger."

    I'm not invalidating it at all. It sucks. By saying she's not the first person to go through it, I mean that the event itself did not justify her reaction, which is far beyond the pale. The pain that we all experience does not make us unique, and lashing out like THAT can't ever be justified. The type of pain (in this case, a possible relationship with an athlete) is incidental; the reaction is not.

    -Shane

    ReplyDelete
  21. I agree I don't buy into the scorned lover identity either. Maryland fans have talked about Nolan's father before, some people are not afraid to go there. He or she is retweeting any and all comments to insinuate she's an ex and that's just suspicious.

    I really think you're reading way too much into this development. This blog is just creating a dramatic, even sympathetic, backstory and publicity for someone who deserves no such attention. A crazy twitter account does not an elephant in the room make. stick a fork in it, let's focus on 'zona.

  24. Actually in shock, Shane. This was among my favorite blogs (still is - won't let one blog post get in the way of things) and has risen to my favorite Duke blog after the past two months of posting.

    This post, however, is absurd, uncalled for, and unbelievably presumptuous. I cannot believe you have given this psychopath credence without knowing a fuller story. Extremely dissapointed.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Agreed with the above. This is just silliness that doesn't deserve a broader audience. What possible purpose could this post serve?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yep, @ihatemisshawaii.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The post was well thoughout, and didn't really give publicity to the twitter account. It was just Shane's thoughts on the matter. Anyway, you mentioned "Kyrie's error", I'm not saying that you meant he made a mistake, was replying. I agree about letting stuff go, however he simply said "Say what you want about me, but leave family out of this." His error would of been taking it to the other persons level of scumbaggery.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks for addressing this, Shane. Whatever happens, true fans have Kyrie's back. I don't think a kid with his fortitude and support system will be affected by this too much. Rare is the freshman with his level of eloquence, class and humility on all levels. Opposing fans have no reason to hate him--true sports fans respect him, just as I respect certain UNC players.

    I don't think Kyrie necessarily made any errors. I'm sad he deleted his account, but he has more important things to focus on, mainly Zona. As do we. Let's Go Duke.

    ReplyDelete
  29. the @ihatemisshawaii has a warrant out on jeremiah green (kyries bestfriend) because he put her number out. makes me think!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm pretty puzzled by the comment five or six up. "Unbelievably presumptous"? "Given this psychopath credence"? What am I meant to have presumed? What credence did I give her?

    I can't be more clear than the original post:

    "Nobody knows why this twitter account was created. Common speculation is that Kyrie had some variation of a one night stand with her or one of her friends. That seems pretty logical, but it's also just a guess. She could be obsessed. Maybe she's never met him. Maybe she's an opposing fan trying to get under his skin. As I've said, maybe she is a he, or a they."

    And then, as for credence, is this credence?

    "Melissa Rodriguez, I hope you read this. You're falling fast from whatever grace you believe in, and that's a critical mistake."

    I thought took special care not to presume anything, and credence is the furthest thing from my mind.

    Bottom line, I'm with most of the commenters here: I think Kyrie is great, and he has my support. There can be no excusing what happened, and nobody deserved what he's talking about.

    To address one more comment, yes, when I said "error" I meant the thing he did that gave this person validity in the first place. He should have avoided posting her twitter name on his account, thereby directing attention her way. But considering how angry he must have felt, that mistake is very understandable, and infinitely forgivable.

  33. Aren't there new bullying statutes that would address this?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Fan from another school? That's dumb. If it was a fan from another school, why go after Kyrie Irving? Why not go after Nolan Smith? Seth Curry?

    This is definitely a case of scorned woman syndrome. I don't know what he did to her, but he hurt her... bad. Bad enough that she would hit him where it hurt.

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's probably just an opposing schools fan's. It's not that hard to get someones phone number. This is also the kinda thing I'd expect from Arizona fans. There really should be a team twitter freeze around this time of year anyway.

    Duke had a close game versus Michigan and now everyone claims the team couldn't beat X playing like they did against Michigan. When are people going to learn there's no transitive property in basketball? Is Arizona going to show up and do a 1-3-1 zone? No. Is Arizona going to have Hardaway Jr? No. Is Arizona going to come out blazing hot from beyond the arc? Who knows?

    I'm hoping Kyrie has had some time to get his lateral movement back. It's the first thing to go and the last thing to come back. It's pretty frustrating having someone just drive by you and not be able to stop em when you knew you could before.

  36. Look it up, folks.

    @ihatemisshawaii's picture feed is littered with KI's name: http://plixi.com/6031722

    I'm a UNC alumnus, and honestly, post-Redick, y'all don't have any players good enough to hate. At least not with this level of ferocity.

    Verdict: woman scorned.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It is most definitely @ihatemisshawaii.

    @ihatemmisshawaii imploded overnight on twitter page as she must have had people confronting her about being dukelvr. She is posting call logs and texts from Kyrie attempting to deny & deflect to call Kyrie a "stalker." (Funny, wasn't dukelvr threatening to do the same?) She referred earlier last night to "smushing" UNC basketball players so she must be some type of basketball groupie. Deep in her blog she shows a photo of a West Virginia basketball jersey that she says was taken in "his room." Apparently on some WV board she was referred to as a "CAB" (slang term). She was called out last night from another tweet about going psycho in the same manner when Devin Eubanks cut her off. Clearly she has a disturbing thing for basketball players.

    Hopefully these young athletes for any school start keeping a better eye out for nut jobs like this and become wiser about who they get involved with.

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's @ihatemisshawaii, she's now posting call logs and conversations with Kyrie.
    ihatemisshawaii/dukelvr is reading these blogs Shane and responding to the comments on twitter, it's just more ammo for the crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Jeremiah Green (Kyrie's best friend who is @Blank908 on twitter) also confirms that @ihatemisshawaii and dukelvr are the same. She supposedly put Kyrie's number on Craiglist telling people to call and ask to speak to his mother. He said the screen shots she posted of his number are fake and that Kyrie "saw her for the first time in Charlotte...she's upset Kyrie didn't wanna talk to her."

    So it sounds like Kyrie rejected the basketball groupie and she's furious about it lashing out all over the internet.

  41. Whomever is writing these things to Kyrie obviously has some problems. You can't deny that and you can't deny it shows poor character. However, to even remotely compare this to the Nazis or the World Trade Center terrorists is way out of line. To compare hateful comments to a basketball player to people who killed thousands or millions of people is beyond ridiculous. As bad as this person's actions are please try to keep some perspective.

Ironically the post above this came nearly simultaneously with the deletion of that account. Any thoughts

    ReplyDelete
  46. @Anonymous 9:36 AM:

    I see what you're trying to say, but Shane obviously isn't trying to compare KI's stalker to the Nazis or terrorists. He's merely making the point that people often do what they think is justifiable, even if most others think the behavior is reprehensible. The Nazis and terrorists were convenient examples of this. However, Shane is not comparing the actual MAGNITUDE of what this stalker did to the Nazis and terrorists - just pointing out a similarity between one small aspect of their mindsets.

    Shane, love the blog. Go Duke.

    ReplyDelete
  47. "ihatemisshawaii" hasn't deleted her page - just changed the name. it's now @MissHawaii and she's still up to the same tricks.

  48. Anon 2 above, thanks for the defense. I'm learning over the course of the blog and comment section growing that people are always going to read the blog, misinterpret something drastically, and post an idiotic comment like the one you referenced. I'm slowly conditioning myself not to respond to every single one of these posts, but it's always appreciated when someone steps up and points out the obvious.

    Long story short: glad you're reading and commenting.

  53. This has gone on long enough. This is the story on Kyrie Ivring and the fake model Misshawaii. 18yr old Kryie Ivring met 30yr old misshawaii on the internet through a friend. They built a internet based relationship for about a month.Kyrie Ivring and the Duke blue devils had a 1st and 2nd round tournament games in Charlotte NC. MissHawaii thought it would be a good idea for her to show up in Charlotte for the she and Kyrie could meet. So Kyrie Ivring was at the Epic center with his father in uptown Charlotte where he saw misshawaii for the first time in person. He talked to her for about 5mins before they parted ways. Shortly after Misshawaii kept calling and texting Kyrie Ivring phone, he never would pick up or responded to any of her text messages. The reason for him ignoring her was because when he saw her for the first time in person he was simply not attracted to her. She had on probably a full bottle of makeup and she was over weight (to claim to be a model) look as if she possibly could have been a man. The only thing that Kyrie Ivring did to her was ignored her after meeting her. Later on that day Kyrie Ivring comes out his hotel outside and who is whispering his name signaling Kyrie Ivring to come over to her it was misshawaii. So they stood there for a few minutes and talked after misshawaii caught Kyrie Ivring off guard by popping up outside his hotel. So when the two parted ways again she continued to text and call his phone. Kyrie Ivring continued to focus on the whole reason he was in Charlotte Nc in the first place. So he ignored her and ignored her…until sunday night out of nowhere a fake twitter page was created @dukeIvr1989. This twitter page attacked kyrie Ivring over and over talking about his deceased mother over and over. And goes on to say things like “u messed with the wrong girl, u shouldnt play with peoples feelings”. She threaten to post text messages and photos of Kyrie Ivring that he sent her. So later the night a friend of Misshawaii let it be known that Misshawaii is the person behind @dukelvr1989 which it did not take a rocket scientist to determined misshawaii was the person harassing Kyrie Ivring after her feelings were hurt because of Kyrie Ivring Ignoring her. So after Kyrie Ivring caught wind that it was her (misshawaii) behind the twitter page dukeivr1989 he called and texted her trying to ask her was she the person behind the page. She never ever responded or tried to clear her name. So days later she posted text messages from her and Kyrie of him going on her for her being the person behind that fake twitter page dukelvr1989. MissHawaii also threatened Kyrie Ivring on her real twitter page @misshawaii that she would post videos and pics of Kyrie Ivring. The same threats that were made on the fake twitter page @dukeIvr1989. So bottomline is this is a SAD case of a 30yr old want to be model feelings get hurt after a 18yr old teen simply ignored her after meeting her for the first time in person. She looked very manly and face FULL of caked makeup…and also a big girl. She has never ever met him in person so y is her feelings so hurt off of him dissing her. When I say diss i mean Simply IGNORED HER. The things that misshawaii were saying about Kyrie Ivring’s deceased mother is flat out heartless. So truth be told you can not blame Kyrie Ivring for texting and calling her after her heartless acts…shes trying to play the victim. Kyrie Ivring is a great great person

  57. OK I KNOW I AM THE LAST PERSON TO COMMENT ON THESE BLOG SITES BUT WHAT I AM SEEING IS JUST TOTALLY UNCALLED FOR. MISS HAWAII IS A VERY GOOD FRIEND OF MINE AND A PHENOMENAL PERSON AND ALL OF THIS BASHING OF HER HAS TO STOP. JUST AS KYRIE HAS "FRIENDS" AND FAMILY THAT CARE ABOUT HIM, WELL SO DOES SHE. I NEED TO CLEAR THE RECORD UP BECAUSE MOSTLY EVERYTHING BEING SPOKEN ABOUT HER IS A FALSE. I HAVE TO SAY THIS, JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE IS AN ATHLETE THAT DOES NOT DEFINE THEIR CHARACTER!!! NO ONE KNOWS WHAT TRANSPIRED BETWEEN KYRIE AND HAWAII BUT THE TWO OF THEM!!!! KYRIE SENT HER A DM ON TWITTER BACK IN DECEMBER SHE DIDNT REALLY LIKE HIM BECAUSE OF HIS AGE BUT HE WAS PERSISTENT. THEN HE ASKED FOR HER NUMBER AND THEY BECAME VERY CLOSE, TALKING EVERYDAY. THEY ALSO USED TO SKYPE ALL THE TIME AS WELL. SO FOR KYRIE TO SAY SHE IS FAT UGLY LOOKS LIKE A MAN ETC IN PERSON IS A LIE BECAUSE HE SAW HER FROM HEAD TO TOE ON SKYPE. AND HE HAS OVER 100 PHOTOS OF HER SO HE IS JUST TRYING TO HURT HER LIKE SHE HURT HIM. ANYWAYS, MISS HAWAII HAS FAMILY IN NC, SHE DID NOT TRAVEL TO NC JUST TO SEE KYRIE! DURING THIS TIME HE WAS OUT THERE FOR THE NCAA AND THEY WANTED TO SEE EACH OTHER! SO THEY MET UP TWICE (NOTICE THE WORD TWICE) HOW CAN YOU REJECT SOMEONE IN PERSON WHEN YOU MET UP WITH THEM TWICE?!?! THEY MET UP ONCE AT A BAR (YES KYRIE IS AN UNDERAGE DRINKER) AND THE SECOND TIME AT THE RITZ CARLTON HOTEL .... HAWAII DID NOT LIKE KYRIE BECAUSE SHE TOLD ME HES ARROGANT AND COCKY. ALSO, KYRIE REFUSED TO SIGN AUTOGRAPHS FOR THIS DUKE MOM AND HER SON THAT WALKED BY WHICH REALLY TURNED HER OFF. THERE WAS NO KYRIE GETTING ON A BUS AND HER STANDING AROUND LIKE A GROUPIE, THAT IS A LIE. THERE ARE OVER 50 HOTELS IN DOWNTOWN CHARLOTTE, HOW WOULD SHE KNOW WHERE HE WAS STAYING UNLESS HE TOLD HER? SHE DIDNT STALK HIM SHE DIDNT HARASS HIM SHE DIDNT GET REJECTED BY HIM BECAUSE IF KYRIE DIDNT LIKE HER APPEARANCE, HE WOULDN'T HAVE MET UP WITH HER AGAIN AT HIS HOTEL AND TOLD HER WHERE HE WAS STAYING. SO KYRIE CALLED HER/TEXT HER THE NEXT DAY AND SHE NEVER RESPONDED AND THATS WHEN ALL THIS CRAZINESS STARTED. I WITNESSED IT AND KYRIE HAS CALLED HAWAII'S PHONE OVER 100 TIMES!!!!! HE HAS HAD HIS FAMILY MEMBERS CALL HER THREATENING HER, HIS FRIENDS FROM NEW JERSEY, AND EVEN A FEW FEMALES HARASSING THIS POOR GIRL. KYRIE IS NOT THE VICTIM ALTHOUGH HE IS TRYING TO BE. I KNOW HAWAII VERY WELL AND SHE DOESNT HAVE TO STALK ANYONE. SHE DATES NBA PLAYERS, RAPPERS, ACTORS ETC SO A COLLEGE PLAYER IS NOT EVEN ON ANY OF THOSE LEVELS. KYRIE AND HIS FRIENDS ARE JUST UPSET BECAUSE KYRIES GOOD BOY IMAGE IS DONE AND HAWAII EXPOSED HIM FOR HARASSMENT. AND NO SHE IS NOT A PROSTITUTE/HOOKER/ESCORT/CALL GIRL THAT IS SOME FRAUDULENT INFORMATION CURRENTLY BEING HANDLED. SHE IS NOT 30 YEARS OLD THATS A LIE, SHE IS 23 AND SHE HAS NO KIDS. AND YES SHE IS A MODEL. NOT ALL MODELS ARE A SIZE 0 ANYONE WHO IS EDUCATED KNOWS THERE ARE HIP HOP MODELS, HAND MODELS, FEET MODELS, PLUS SIZE MODELS, HAIR MODELS, ETC ETC SO JUST STOP THE LIES AND LET THE TRUTH SET YOU FREE. SHE DID NOT STALK KYRIE AND THAT IS WHY SHE IS IN THE PROCESS OF SUING HIM FOR DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER. I JUST DONT GET HOW THIS BOY HAS SO MUCH TO LOSE BUT HAS MADE SUCH POOR CHOICES. HE NEEDS TO BE MATURE ABOUT THE SITUATION AND REALIZE EVERYONE ISNT GOING TO WANT YOU JUST BECAUSE YOU PLAY BASKETBALL .... IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUESTIONS IM ON TWITTER @BRWNEYESLIE

  58. Anonymous above,
    You don't get to play the "poor girl" card as you ignorantly reference above when you are defending someone who says this:

    "too bad it wont bring his mother back SHES DEAD DEAD DEAD"

    Pathetic. Both of you...pathetic.

    If either of your ever had any class, you would be ashamed of yourselves.

  60. Methinks that capitalized rant above was another creation of a fake internet personality of Jessica Jackson. Not a Duke fan whatsoever, but this pisses me off to no end. Anyone that stumbles across this post needs to read:

  61. Well actually there are to many people that make this not because they want to get another identity or something like that, they just want to protect them from people who can take reprisals against them.

  62. Kyrie already deleted his account to avoid a tit for tat situation, the rest of the team isn't responding online either like they did initially.
