Kyrie Irving has a penchant for deep, contemplative thoughts that that may or may not have been rejected by the motivational poster factory. Most recently he told Yahoo!'s Shams Charania, "Normal people keep the world going, but those who dare to be different lead us into tomorrow." Irving apparently considers opting-in to the final year of a contract he signed which will pay him $37 million to play basketball his version of daring to be different.

Of course, Kyrie Irving is not the first incredibly talented character with a unique skillset to have had trouble fitting in and finding acceptance in New York City. Take the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for example. Specifically the characters in the 1990 motion picture.

It should come as no surprise that some lines from the movie could easily be confused with something Kyrie might post on social media. Can you tell the difference between a quote from the first TMNT movie and something Kyrie has posted? Test yourself below!
