Kyrie Irving continues his blood feud with Boston Celtics fans this week.

The Brooklyn Nets star was playing the “Grand Theft Auto” video game on a Twitch stream Monday night. When trolls popped up in the comments section with pro-Celtic posts, Irving took the opportunity to rail against the Celtics fanbase as a whole and the overused jokes he’d heard from them.

“‘Oh Kyrie, what are you doing at home?’ Irving said in a mocking voice. “That’s how you talk to me. ‘Ooh, you’re going home, you’re going to Cancun? You home? Ooh Kyrie, you suck.

“‘What are you doing? Oh my god, go back to Cleveland,’ Irving continued derisively. “‘Oh my god, Boston hates you, oh my god.’ That’s how you hear me Cockroaches That’s how you hear me.


The salt is still very fresh for the former Celtic Irving. His Nets just got swept by the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs, and Irving was probably on Twitch to decompress and forget about basketball altogether.

That being said, Irving probably should have expected the trolls to come looking for him on a public forum. That’s especially true considering how Irving went out of his way to upset Boston fans during the playoffs.
