Kyrie Irving Credits Vegan Diet for Winning Streak

The professional basketball player said he is now awake to the harmful effects of consuming animal products.

Professional basketball player Kyrie Irving of the Boston Celtics recently explained that his new plant-based diet has had a positive impact on the court. The Celtics are currently on a 13-game winning streak and Irving is already a leading MVP candidate this season. “It works," Irving told sports media outlet Bleacher Report. "I mean, I'm not eating a whole bunch of animals anymore. Once you become awake, you don't see that stuff anymore." The Celtics are currently the top team in the Eastern conference, while the Golden State Warriors—where center JaVale McGee credits his increased energy levels to his new plant-based diet—is atop of the Western conference.
