Kyrie Irving appeared to have some choice words for a fan who asked him "where's LeBron?!"
Kyrie Irving doesn't want to talk about LeBron. He implied as much when he was recently asked about why he left Cleveland. He quickly shut down ESPN's Stephen A. Smith when he asked Irving whether he told LeBron that he was going to request a trade.
If those comments weren't enough evidence that Irving is tired of hearing of LeBron, maybe this back-and-forth with a fan will do the trick.
Irving made a lewd comment after the Celtics' 102-92 win over the 76'ers. What prompted it was a comment that wasn't particularly menacing, nor creative: "Kyrie, where's LeBron?!"
Kyrie responded with an equally trite comeback—"Suck my d---!"
This kind of cringeworthy stuff happens all the time between aggressive fans and tired athletes. This one just happened to be caught on camera.
Update: Irving acknowledged that he made the comment and apologized to children who heard it, but said he does not regret saying what he did.
