The Kyrie Irving saga continues.  The Nets suffered a heartbreaking 115-114 loss on Easter Sunday when Jayson Tatum hit the game winning spinning layup around Kyrie Irving.  Kyrie gave the TD Garden and Boston Celtic fans the middle finger on multiple occasions as he continues to let his emotions get the best of him.  Kyrie brings a lot of this on himself by the controversial things he both says and does.  Here is my quick take on this from the Times Union:

Kyrie Irving is a great player for the Brooklyn Nets, but why can’t he just play basketball and not flip off the fans in Boston like we saw on Sunday. Kyrie knows he’s going to hear it from Celtic fans, that’s nothing new. His game can do all the talking, because it’s that good. It’s a bad look on the NBA when one of your superstar players can’t control his emotions in a series that is being heavily watched. You don’t see Aaron Judge act like that when he gets booed by his own fans at Yankee Stadium. If the NBA doesn’t crack down on Kyrie, it won’t get any better the rest of the series. And honestly, the series is plenty good without Kyrie’s sideshow.

MJ and I discussed Game 1 and specifically Kyrie Irving yesterday morning and afternoon here on Big Board Sports.  Below is our full conversation on this.

I really hope Kyrie can get it together and stop being in the headlines for all of the negative reasons.  I also hope that this Celtics and Nets series goes seven games because it is an awesome matchup to watch.
