It’s not a secret that new Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving is among the most-hated sports figures in Boston.
Irving’s drama-filled two-year tenure with the Celtics came to an end earlier this month when he decided to join Kevin Durant on the Nets.
As we’ve seen with Mr. Durant in recent years, fans are not going to let Irving live that down.
Here, new Celtics center Enes Kanter helps Celtics fans troll Irving simply by posting photos of the guard’s No. 11 jersey with Kanter replacing Irving as the name. It’s pretty petty stuff.
We really can’t wait for Irving to make his return trip to Boston next season. It’s going to be equally awesome and awkward. Maybe the NBA decides that this trip is best suited for Christmas Day. How amazing would that be?
As for Kanter, he’s never been afraid to stir the pot. Just recently signed from the Portland Trail Blazers, the veteran has already bad mouthed his former team.
We’re sure that he has no issue playing into the Irving-Celtics drama. Kanter seems to thrive under that light.
