Kyrie Irving/Air Lobster shoes/possible alien spacecraft - it all fits

We knew it had to happen! Kyrie Irving got our attention with the highly-controversial Flat Earth Theory. Now he is introducing new Air Lobster shoes about the same time that a cigar-shaped object is sailing through our solar system - an object that even Stephen Hawking believes could possibly be an alien vessel.

Kyrie came to Boston wanting to be The Man. He has become that, but he is also his own man. To paraphrase Henry David Thoreau, he will be himself, because if he isn't, who will be? The asteroid/alien ship carries the name Oumuamua, Hawaiian for messenger. What's the message?

In the above tweet, note the portion about the object having a redder spot,and take a look above at the red lobsters on Kyrie's shoes. I think we are onto something. Here is The Mirror's John Von Radowitz on the nature of the object:

Even Stephen Hawking thinks mysterious cigar-shaped asteroid 'Oumuamua' could be an alien spaceship.
It's the first object discovered in the solar system that appears to have originated from another part of the galaxy

Mystery solved! As he states, Irving is definitely a creator, and I believe he devised a way to have a messenger with an odd shape sent from another part of the galaxy to promote his Air Lobster shoes. Creation at its best. Can someone notify Stephen Hawking? Professor Brown, are you available? Do writers for other NBA teams have as much fun writing about their players as Celtics writers do?
