Kyrie Irving thinks Cavs fans are ungrateful after all that he did for the team and he had to walk towards those Cavs fans heckling him to point out their ungratefulness. Kyrie walked towards them and said:
“Got y’all a championship, and mothaf**kas still ungrateful.”
Kyrie Irving knocked down arguably the biggest shot in NBA history to seal a Cleveland Cavaliers championship back in 2016. However, since that time Kyrie hasn’t been a fan favorite in Cleveland due to the nature of his departure from the team following the 2017 Finals. Now a member of the Brooklyn Nets, Kyrie found himself getting heckled by a few Cavs faithful.
Despite getting the better of this exchange, the Nets dropped the game yesterday to the Cavs losing by 7 points: 107 – 114.
Nets will likely struggle for a while thanks to Kevin Durant being out with a bad knee.
Kevin Durant wasn’t there to make the big shot, snatch the key rebound or take over like he’s done countless times. The Brooklyn Nets knew life would be challenging without their superstar.
On Monday, that became reality — and their foreseeable future. Darius Garland strengthened his All-Star case with 22 points and 12 assists, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 114-107 win Monday over the Nets, who lost their first game since Durant injured his left knee.
“You can’t replace Kev,” said Kyrie Irving, who led the Nets with 27 points in just his fourth game since coming back despite being unvaccinated and only playing road games. “It’s impossible. We just faced that reality right now.” Isaac Okoro added 15 points and Jarrett Allen had 14 and 10 rebounds for the Cavs, who followed up a 5-1 road trip with the fifth straight win.
“It’s a signature win for us against a high-level team,” Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. “Obviously with reasons why and excuses coming back off that long road trip and all those things, playing against two of the most elite players in our league, and our guys figuring out a way.
