Kyrie Irving Flips Celtics Fans Double Bird!
CelebnSports247.com got word that the Nets star point guard was spotted giving double middle fingers behind his head to a group of fans who were heckling him during Sunday’s game.
Yeah it was slick, so officials didn’t catch what he was doing. However, photographers did.
Celtics fans were all over Kyrie — who spent two seasons with Boston before signing with the Nets. Celtics fans were trying to get him off his game but Kyrie seemingly had enough and responded.
In the short clip, you see Irving flip not one but two birdies behind his head as he stands along the baseline, waiting to receive the ball from the ref before inbounding the ball.
Of course, Irving’s double bird drew a response from the crowd who was happy they finally got KI to respond.
Cause and effect people, what, was Kyrie supposed to sit there and do nothing?
On his way to the locker room Celtic fans didn’t let up, so Kyrie responded by yelling back:
Suck my D–K!

Kyrie had a response when asked during his postgame conference.
Irving said postgame:
It’s the same energy, and I’m gonna have the same energy for them.
And it’s not every fan, I don’t want to attack every fan, every Boston fan, but when people start yelling [expletives], it’s about so much you can take as a competitor… If somebody’s gonna call me out on my name, I’m gonna look at them straight in the eye and see if they’re really about it. Most of the time, they’re not.
