Last Night. Kyrie Irving returned to Cleveland as an opponent and was booed by his former fans.
The Brooklyn Nets still won 117-125 with 32 points from Irving himself and as many from Kevin Durant.
After the contest Kevin Love stood up for his former partner, spending beautiful words for him.
I don’t understand the reasons for the booing. I could accept them from a political or religious point of view (clear references to Irving’s no-vax and anti-Semitic positions, ed.) but the player cannot be questioned. For what he has done for us we should just clap his hands every time he comes back here. The Cavaliers should retire his jersey, when he quits there’s no need to even discuss it. He scored the most important basket in franchise history, one of the heaviest of any time in the NBA, considering what that play meant for the city, for his legacy, for LeBron James’ legacy and because it crowned the comeback against a battleship like those Golden State Warriors were.
