Steve Carfino bangs Nick Kyrgios for Dominic Perrottet, Maria Thattil rejection of charity basketball game

A classless Nick Kyrgios was criticized for dominating a beauty queen and NSW Premier during a charity basketball game.

Nick Kyrgios returned fire after being beaten for his conduct during a charity basketball game over the weekend, where he dominated the celebrity clash.

The Australian tennis star has said over the years that he would have liked to be a professional basketball player and spends as much time shooting for baskets as he is practicing the forehand.

So when it got a chance to show its handles, Canberran didn’t hold back, even though it was a complete discrepancy with its opponents.

NBL legend Steve Carfino, who played for the Hobart Devils and the Sydney Kings during a decorated career at Down Under, criticized Kyrgios for showing no mercy while shots rejected by NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet and Miss Universe Australia 2020 Maria Thattil, and she dominated in the offensive part accumulating buckets.

Carfino, who was coaching the team led by Mr Perrottet, said Kyrgios was overwhelmed by “white line fever” and went too far in a game that raised funds for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

“How disgusting. Oh my God, “Carfino told Fox Sports’ The back page Tuesday evening.

“And what a lack of sportsmanship. He is blocking the girls’ shots, he does not pass to his teammates.

“This is a stardom game. There are funds to be raised for the Starlight Foundation. It was ridiculous. “

Asked by reporter Robert Craddock to confirm that he was serious in his criticisms, Carfino doubled down.

“I just thought it was unsportsmanlike, you know? It wasn’t the right time to show how dominant you can be against the Australian Miss World contestant, ”she said.

“He’s trying to block her shot. He is going hard, blocking the Premier League’s shot, you know, he didn’t come out, he refused to leave the game (as a substitute).

“We had 18 players and we got everyone involved. I think it was, you know, for game improvement. You know, it was the right thing to do.

“It was a stardom game. Know where you are. “

Kyrgios made an exception to criticism, commenting on an Instagram post on Carfino’s comments.

“Disrespect? Potato, take a look at my foundation and look me in the eye and tell me what disrespect is there for that?” Kirgios wrote.

“Maybe if you had shown less sportsmanship, your NBA career would have lasted (sic) longer (laughing emoji).”

Kyrgios played on a team captained by radio broadcaster Ben Fordham and his teammates included the likes of former NRL star Jamie Soward and actor Dan Ewing. On the other hand, Mr. Perrottet has captained celebrities including Nova radio host Michael “Wippa” Wipli, Thattil and Studio 10 host Tristan McManus.

“The premier spoke – Kyrgios will be on his team next time,” Fordham said after the game.

“We came with the win, but Starlight was the biggest winner.

“Dom Perrottet was a good sport and he put his reputation at risk. Nick Kyrgios has been a little out of the game, so I expect more from him next year. “

Kyrgios’ highlights during his team’s 37-13 win attracted a lot of attention, even from former American basketball star-turned-commentator Corey Williams.

“OMG @NickKyrgios put a series of moves on NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet in the Celebrity ASG and hit the bucket. He blocked the shot twice, ”Williams tweeted.

“16 points 2 cents 2 blocks in 20 minutes. Even in a stardom game it goes tough. My friend Nick is no joke. #MustSeeTV. “
