The Brooklyn Nets handily beat down the Boston Celtics in game 4 on Sunday night but no one is talking about the game on Monday.
After the game, Irving had a water bottle thrown at him by an angry Celtics fans as he made his way towards the locker room.
Here is the video from @YESNetwork. The bottle narrowly misses Irving. This is just the latest incident in a string of recent unacceptable behavior from fans toward NBA players. https://t.co/UG271PaCGw pic.twitter.com/jSnaYR4ETU

“When you’re competing and you’re getting booed and people are chanting at you, and you come in there and drop 40 points, I don’t know how a person may overreact and I don’t how a person will celebrate…It wasn’t like he kicked Brad, or talked noise to the bench, I can’t tell Kyrie how to celebrate after he just had a monster night after getting booed and people chanting things at him”
