It seems one former Boston Celtic thoroughly enjoyed watching Nets’ star Kyrie Irving suffer a potentially devastating ankle injury in Sunday’s loss to Milwaukee.
In a series of Instagram rants, Glen “Big Baby” Davis chalked up the injury to “karma” for stomping on the Boston logo last round.
“His ankles is f—ed up and ‘Lucky’ (the Celtics logo) got his ass,” a gleeful Davis said in a video posted Monday. “His ankles is weak!! His ankles is f—ked and Lucky got his ass!”
Irving, who was ruled out of Game 5 against the Bucks and may miss the rest of the second round, stomped on the Celtics’ center-court logo featuring “Lucky the Leprechaun” after scoring 39 points in a victory over his former team in the first round last month.
The incident drew backlash from Celtics fans and even Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett, but was overshadowed by a Boston fan in a Garnett jersey allegedly throwing a water bottle at Irving’s head moments later. (The fan was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.)
“I don’t even care if it’s a logo! It means something to me,” said the 35-year-old Davis, a former big man who won a title coming off the bench for the Celtics in 2008.
“Like, you know what I’m saying, for example, countries that have flags! You go and step on a logo flag, what is that? That’s disrespect!”
The bad blood between Irving and the Celtics stems from his two tulmultous seasons with the team from 2017-19, which included him clashing with younger players and struggled in the playoffs.
“Ky wished that on hisself (sic),” Davis wote Sunday on social media following the injury.
“Don’t get back at me because ‘Lucky’ got his get back,” Davis later said.
