We have a bit of controversy in the Bucks-Nets series.
During game 4 in Milwaukee on Sunday, Nets superstar guard Kyrie Irving was forced to leave the game with what appeared to be an ankle injury after colliding with Giannis Antetokounmpo on a layup.

Several Nets fans went on to accuse Giannis of being dirty and not giving Kyrie room to land by sliding underneath him which led to the injury.

Others went on to defend Giannis on the play.
come on man, let’s not do this.
to me dirty means intent & i don’t think giannis would do that.
we can have a convo about it being reckless tho. https://t.co/8KHCAsmku2

Stop making Giannis out to be a dirty player lol, have yall not watched the dude play at all?
Both were going for the rebound and looking at the ball, and Kyrie landed on his foot, it was obviously a accident
