Why Kyrie vs. Dion is a Struggle for the Meaning of the Universe

There is more at work than just petty personality clashes in the Cleveland Cavaliers locker room. Really, the fate of the world is at stake. I’m not sure how it got to this, what forces are working in Cleveland to make this not only the struggle of our time, but the epicenter of time itself.

I’m talking about Kyrie. Dion.

Kyrie vs. Dion.

How you perceive this debate is a reflection of how you personally believe.
About life.
About death.
About those who have come before you and those who have come after you.

How do I know this?

Because of the most important source on Earth: Wikipedia.

Are you ready for this? For real ready?
You may want to hold your head with both hands because what you’re about to see will literally give you a knowledge concussion.

“Kyrie” is the translation of the Greek word “Kyrios” which literally means “God” and is used in ancient Christian liturgy to refer to “Lord, Lord, master.”

Dion is the name of a Greek God, and something something with Apollo and something something daughters with Iphitea. I don’t understand Greek mythology and don’t really care that much about the mythological forces and really get confused about the many different types of gods. But this is big. Really big.

I also don’t want to get into it too much, because I’m biased. I’m on #teamkyrie.

But there’s no denying that Kyrie vs. Dion possesses two fundamentally different ways of looking at the world.

And all this happening in a crumbling Rust Belt city that the rest of us would rather forget, but look–now we can never get rid of Cleveland. No way. No how.

The old phrase is that “God hates Cleveland” but obviously the joke has been on the rest of us this entire time.
