Devin Booker and Paul George are butting heads again and Kyrie Irving of the Dallas Mavericks is enjoying every second of it.
Recently, George upset Booker by asking Klay Thompson a question about trash talk on his podcast.
The question was related to an incident when Thompson and Booker had some heated words during a game.
While Booker seemed satisfied with Thompson’s response, he called out George on social media, questioning why he would even bring up the topic.
Irving was asked about the whole thing on a recent live stream and was very supportive of Booker speaking out.
“I love people with that warrior spirit. I won’t ever say it’s beef, bro, but it’s just so hilarious, man. Like, when you say how you feel, I think people be surprised,” he said, as seen in the tweet below.

Booker and George have gone at it in the past.
They had an on-court scuffle a few years ago and apparently, there is still some bad blood between the two.
Irving isn’t bothered by that and actually wants players to speak their minds, even if it upsets others.
He is right that many people are surprised to see athletes honestly say how they feel about their peers.
It’s not surprising that Irving would be in favor of that.
Throughout his career, he has said whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted.
Of course, many of his comments have gotten him into hot water and even had him suspended from the league.
But that hasn’t stopped him from stating his opinions and encouraging others to do the same.
It’s not clear if Booker and George will end their dispute any time soon.
But fans – and Irving – will be watching closely to see what happens next.NEXT: James Harden Reportedly Unmoved On Preferred Destination
