Celtics fans taunt Kyrie Irving in celebration of NBA championship

The Boston Celtics celebrated their 18th championship triumph on Monday night with a decisive 18-point victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

Throughout the series, fans directed their ire at former Celtics guard Kyrie Irving, with chants and taunts echoing harsh sentiments. Following the series-clinching win, the streets outside TD Garden filled with jubilant fans chanting “[Expletive] Kyrie,” showcasing their lingering feelings towards the former player.


Irving’s stint with the Celtics was marked by a brief yet impactful tenure, during which he averaged 24.1 points and 6.1 assists per game. Many speculate that Irving never desired to be traded to Boston initially, and after departing, he joined forces with Kevin Durant on the Brooklyn Nets for approximately four seasons before moving to the Mavericks at last year’s trade deadline.

Despite a lackluster debut season in Dallas, the team made significant strides with the acquisitions of P.J. Washington and Daniel Gafford at this year’s trade deadline, culminating in a strong showing that propelled them to the position of championship runners-up.
