Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving generated controversy when he deliberately stomped on the Boston Celtics' half-court logo after the Nets' win on Sunday night.
Current and former players are voicing their thoughts on Irving's act. Kendrick Perkins thinks the conversation is merely a talking point, to distract from the fan who threw a water bottle at Irving postgame.
Are we really discussing this right now? That damn fan shouldn’t have never threw a water bottle at Kyrie I don’t give damn if he poured Gatorade on the Logo. Real Talk! pic.twitter.com/cawu0Bq1kt— Kendrick Perkins (@KendrickPerkins) May 31, 2021
Kevin Garnett had a different view:
