Kevin Garnett and Glen Davis call out Kyrie Irving for stomping on the Celtics logo

Glen-Davis-Kevin-Garnett-Kyrie-Irving

Game 4 between the Celtics and the Nets raised many controversies and talk in the media over the last couple of days. Unfortunately, all the talk is about off-court stuff. The game's main story was a fan throwing a water bottle at Kyrie after the match and missing by inches. The fan is facing assault and battery with a dangerous weapon charge, as the NBA world stood behind Kyrie and criticized the unsportsmanlike behavior by the fans lately.

But that overshadowed another potential controversy, as Kyrie Irving was seen greeting his teammates at halfcourt near the end of the game and stomping the Celtics logo featuring "Lucky the Leprechaun." It caused some reactions, most notably from former NBA player and legend Kevin Garnett who didn't appreciate Kyrie's gesture.

"So nobody gonna say anything about Kyrie Stomping "LUCKY"' We just gonna act like we didn't see that Tf going on.... You can't do that That's not coo on no level .. All of us need to be better frfr l'm just sayin... Good morning to all n all have a great day.. Happy Memorial Day"

KG spent six years with the Celtics, and made a significant impact in Boston, winning a championship in 2008 and embodying the "Celtic Pride" culture. One of his most memorable moments was kissing the Celtics logo on the halfcourt after beating the Lakers in Game 6 and winning it all. So you can see why "The Ticket" has a problem with Kyrie disrespecting the same logo Garnett poured his heart out for. Funny enough, the fan that threw the water bottle at Kyrie was wearing Garnett's jersey. Talk about irony.

Another part of the 2008 championship team and Garnett's former teammate Glen "Big Baby" Davis also joined the conversation, as he commented on a post about KG's criticism of Kyrie with some underlying threats:

"Real bulls***. Like I said you step on lucky you step on everybody that played for that team. Keep the s*** basketball before somebody get hurt in real life."

Irving teammate Kevin Durant would respond to Davis's comment simply in a laughing manner, downplaying the seriousness of the situation. This whole situation got a bit blown out of proportion, but you can't deny that Kyrie has no love for the Celtics organization. After a few disappointing years, clashes with teammates, injuries, and false promises, Irving left a bitter taste behind him in Boston, as he has to face the fact the loyal Boston crowd won't forget about it.
