We remorse to tell you that former Celtics star Kevin Garnett is amongst these extraordinarily upset that Brooklyn Nets level guard Kyrie Irving stepped on the midcourt emblem after Sport 4.
In actual fact, he’s so upset that he appears to suppose that no person is speaking about it. My man…that isn’t the case.
Like most Celtics followers, Garnett doubtless watched his undermanned workforce quit 141 factors to the Brooklyn Nets in what amounted to a must-win Sport 4 of their first-round collection. We additionally assume he noticed an indignant C’s fan chuck a water bottle at Irving’s head within the aftermath, simply essentially the most objectionable factor anybody did over the course of that recreation.
Sure, even worse than beginning the second quarter with Jabari Parker on the courtroom.
In an effort to fire up one thing — or just get his emotions off his chest, and not using a stanchion to pound his head into — KG took to Instagram to “simply ask questions” Monday afternoon.
It was a superb little bit of fan service to the town of Boston, however was additionally wildly disappointing from one of many league’s theoretical robust guys, who seems to suppose Irving had no proper to make a minor gesture of disrespect in spite of everything he’s taken.
Ex-Brooklyn Nets vet Kevin Garnett was not pleased with Kyrie Irving.
“All of us should be higher. The man who threw the water bottle on the athlete’s head lengthy distance and the man who rubbed his shoe on a cartoon Irishman. ALL of us.”
Alright, KG. Cool down, dude. You’re simply mad Kyrie didn’t have to attend till he was already damaged all the way down to get traded to the Nets.
Actually, we are able to’t imagine Garnett “either side’d” the brand stomp, particularly contemplating he used to be the sort of man to let disrespect fly off his lips very often. Didn’t he famously inform Carmelo Anthony his spouse tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios? However this Irving footstep went too far?
Come on, KG! Your literal complete factor is holding grudges! You continue to purport to have one in opposition to Timberwolves proprietor Glen Taylor.
Or perhaps all of your public feuds are between you and pudgy, aged dorks for a motive?
The 2007-08 Celtics have coasted on one title for over a decade, performing like they have been the paragon of robust, old-school basketball regardless of getting punked into dissolution by the Lakers and Warmth.
Perhaps KG and the boys are simply upset that the Brooklyn Nets are about to match their legacy in just a few weeks, with the potential to blow previous them subsequent yr?
