Duncan Robinson Shares Hilarious Reason For Taunting Celtics Fans During Game 7
Miami Heat shooting guard Duncan Robinson was caught on camera taunting Celtics fans in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Robinson’s backdoor cut layup put the Heat up 21 points with just over six minutes to go. He then held his hand up to his ear to taunt the Boston crowd.
Turns out there’s an insanely hilarious story behind it. Robinson, a New England native, who attended Williams College in Massachusetts, was added to a group chat filled with Boston fans after Game 6. He had to fire back, that’s what he revealed on JJ Redick’s The Old Man and the Three podcast:
“I still have the same number from when I was in high school. My number got put in a group chat somewhere. It was a massive group chat,” Robinson said. “So after we lose Game 6, my phone is blowing up from all these random New England numbers. Like, ‘Get f**cked, Celtics in seven.’ They’re sending me memes of the Curt Schilling bloody sock. And it’s just all these random numbers. It’s like 70 texts, and I’m like, ‘What is going on?’ I’m also pissed because I’m on the heels of this bone-crushing loss, not to mention I missed some shots down the stretch…
So I’m in my feels and I’m really worked up about it. I’m like, ‘Who the f**k gave out my number? How the f**k did this happen?’ So then I start thinking. I’m creating all these scenarios in my head. I’m like, ‘If I get the chance and I go into the Garden, I’m going to do something.’ And I didn’t know what it was going to be.
Honestly, probably a little underwhelming, but you would be shocked at how many people that really bothered. Some people loved it, and then obviously all of the people who are bitter back home are like, ‘That was so unnecessary. Classless.’ All that stuff, but whatever.”
