What Kyrie Irving Did To Celtics Before Water Bottle Was Thrown

An angry fan threw a water bottle at Kyrie Irving following the Brooklyn Nets’ 141-126 victory over the Boston Celtics on Sunday night.

The ill will between Boston and Irving had been growing for some time and it finally reached a boiling point after Game 4.

The fan in question was ultimately arrested and charged with assault and battery.

After the fact, Celtics fans attempted to justify the water-bottle throwing act by pointing to what Irving did prior to it happening.

What did he do? He stomped out the team’s logo.

Does that warrant the reaction Irving ultimately got? Some people seem to think so.

Whether he’s getting brutally honest about his Muslim faith, explaining why an NBA title isn’t the end all be all for him, or going off on players for using racial slurs, Irving is never shy when it comes to expressing himself.

That is part of what makes him such a lightning rod, and it’s a big reason why he is as polarizing as he is these days.
