After Irving landed awkwardly on his right ankle in the first half of Game 4, Davis commented on Instagram that the leg was the same one Irving used to disrespect the Boston Celtics’ midcourt logo earlier in the postseason.

Irving, who used to play for the Celtics, intentionally stepped on the team’s midcourt logo last month and dragged his foot across it (video here). Davis, another former Celtic, took to Instagram after the stunt and basically threatened Irving, which drew a response from Kevin Durant.
Kevin Garnett also blasted Irving for disrespecting Boston’s logo, but suggesting Kyrie’s injury was karma is just as immature as the logo stomp. Of course, we’ve grown used to that type of commentary from Davis.
