Former MLB star Johnny Damon made headlines for a bizarre tweet following the Heat’s Game 7 win over the Celtics. The video clip wished Boston luck as it attempted to become the first NBA team to overcome a 0-3 series deficit.

There was only one thing wrong with the timing of the clip. It came 20 minutes after the game had finished up, and of course, the Celtics did not make history.

Fans were quick to respond to the odd post, which has since been deleted.

It is, however, still up on his Instagram story for those interested.

“Hey everybody, Johnny Damon, here,” the video starts. “[A member of] the only team that has come back from a 3-0 deficit. I wanna wish everybody a Happy Memorial Day and thank all our military for keeping our country the best in the world. Thank you so much.

“Let’s see what the Celtics can do. A 3-0 deficit is very hard to come back from and they have a chance to do it tonight. May the best team win.”

Damon then pointed to his own championship ring and said, “This is the greatest comeback of all time. Let’s see what happens tonight.”

Once you get through the rambling and slurring of words, you realize that his original Twitter post actually came after the game ended. Talk about rubbing salt in the wounds of Boston fans.

Fans were quick to reply to the post.

One reply read, “He forgot to post before the game,” while another person said, “He can’t even form a sentence.”

This fan wrote, “Johnny Damon adding insult to injury for Boston sports fans with this post…ouch!”

In Damon’s defense, the Instagram post appeared to come out right around gametime. Why he then posted it to Twitter following a 19-point loss, we’re not really sure.
