Last night, the Brooklyn Nets were on the road to battle the Boston Celtics. Fans were hoping it would mark the return of Kyrie Irving, but he wasn’t present due to a shoulder injury.
Irving’s time in Boston ended on awful terms. Despite telling fans he would sign a long-term deal with the Celtics, the All-Star guard left to join the Nets.
Even though Irving wasn’t at TD Garden for yesterday’s game, the fans chanted “Kyrie sucks” multiple times.
Clearly all the taunting that was done last night bothered Irving. He went on social media to discuss how “ignorant” fans can be.
“It happens all the time and tonight just shows how sports/entertainment will always be ignorant and obtrusive,” Irving wrote on Instagram. “It’s one big show that means very little in the real world that most people live in because there are actually things that matter going on within it.”
Here’s the full message from Irving’s Instagram account:

Honestly, the entire situation may have been worse if Irving did play on Wednesday night.
It’s possible that both sides move on from their ugly breakup, but it’s tough to see that happening anytime soon.
The Celtics and Nets are scheduled to play tomorrow afternoon. However, it sounds like Irving will remain out of action because of his injury.
