CELTICS Fan Throws Bottle at Player… Another ugly NBA incident

Sharing is Caring!

BOSTON (CBS) – Players from both the Celtics and Nets condemned a fan who is now facing charges and a liftetime ban from TD Garden after throwing a water bottle at Brooklyn guard Kyrie Irving.

It happened moments after the game after Irving seemingly stomped on the Celtics leprechaun logo at center court and grinded his sneaker on it.

BOSTON (AP) — Kyrie Irving says banning fans who mistreat NBA players won’t solve the problem.

It goes much deeper than that.

“(It’s) just underlying racism, and treating people like they’re in a human zoo,” Irving said after a water bottle was thrown at him following Brooklyn’s 141-126 victory over the Celtics on Sunday night.

“Throwing stuff at people, saying things. There’s a certain point where it gets to be too much,” said the Nets guard, who spent two years playing in Boston and revealed last week he was the victim of racism during his time in the city. “You see people just feel very entitled out here. … As a Black man playing in the NBA, dealing with a lot of this stuff, it’s fairly difficult. You never know what’s going to happen.”
