It seems one former Boston Celtic thoroughly enjoyed watching Nets' star Kyrie Irving suffer a potentially devastating ankle injury.
A former Boston Celtic thoroughly enjoyed watching Nets’ star Kyrie Irving suffer an ankle injury in Sunday’s loss to Milwaukee.
In a series of Instagram rants, Glen “Big Baby” Davis said the injury was “karma” for Irving stomping on the Celtics’ center-court logo after beating his former team in the first round of the playoffs.
“His ankles is f—ed up and ‘Lucky’ (the Celtics’ logo) got his ass,” a gleeful Davis said in a video posted Monday. “His ankles is weak!! His ankles is f—ked and Lucky got his ass!”
Irving, who was ruled out of Game 5 against the Bucks and may miss the rest of the second round due to a right ankle sprain, spent two tulmultous seasons with the Celtics, which included him clashing with younger players and struggling in the playoffs.
The stomping incident drew backlash from Boston fans and even Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett, but it was overshadowed by a Celtics fan in a Garnett jersey allegedly throwing a water bottle at Irving’s head moments later. (The fan was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.)
“I don’t even care if it’s a logo! It means something to me,” said the 35-year-old Davis, a former big man who won a title coming off the bench for the Celtics in 2008.
“Like, you know what I’m saying, for example, countries that have flags! You go and step on a logo flag, what is that? That’s disrespect!”
Doubling down Monday in the face of criticism for his comments, Davis said, “Don’t get mad at me because ‘Lucky’ got his get back.”
