Brooklyn Nets superstar Kyrie Irving issued a challenge to the Boston Celtics star Kemba Walker.

As part of a recent Instagram Live session, Irving said he wants to face Walker 1-on-1.

“That’s my matchup, I want K-Walk. That’s my big bro. I want K-Walk. That’s my big bro. You know we got mutual respect, but I know everybody wants to see it out of New York, New Jersey.

Every time we play against each other, it’s always a game. He gave us 40, I gave him 40, back-and-forth. That’s just part of where we grew up,” Irving said, via the Nets Wire.
