The story of Game Four between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets centers around Kyrie Irving. Whether it be him stomping on Boston’s logo or having a bottle thrown at him, it was all that anyone could talk about.
The conversation hasn’t stopped yet. While everyone can agree that a fan shouldn’t throw projectiles at players, the discourse around Irving’s sly move at center court leaves some room for disagreement.
While I would be lying if I said that if this was Marcus Smart I would likely have a different view, Irving knows that the Celtics logo represents a lot. It was an extremely petty move to try and sneakily display his attitude towards the organization with a single stomp of the foot.
But at the end of the day, we want to know what the players think about Irving’s stunt. One Celtics legend is not happy about it.
Boston Celtics legend Kevin Garnett teaches Kyrie Irving a lesson
if Garnett says something is wrong it’s hard to disagree with him. Even though he didn’t begin his career in Boston, it seemed like the power forward was willing to die for the Celtics.

Whenever Garnett was on the court, he gave it all. He was willing to whatever it took to get the win for the Celtics.
“Green Teamers” were dreaming that Irving would be a similar player. A guy who might not have started his career in Boston, but was able to do great things for the organization. It was Irving himself who said that he wanted to spend the rest of his career in Boston.
But Irving isn’t KG. Honestly, the point guard wishes he could have a career like the hall of famer. Garnett isn’t just beloved by one club, he is a hero to two separate fanbases.
So it will be interesting to see what happens when Game Five arrives. The Celtics will have a point to prove and will be looking to extend the series. If they were somehow able to complete the comeback, I don’t know how Irving would be able to recover.
Irving should listen to the Celtics legend and think twice before trying these shenanigans again. At the end of the day, he should let his play do the talking.
