Twitter Exposes Kyrie For Actually Celebrating Thanksgiving After All

 

Last year’s Boston Celtics had been one of the biggest success stories of the 2017-18 NBA season.

A young team that lost both their All Stars, Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving ,who both underwent season-ending surgeries, made the Conference Finals nontheless. Boston’s young core (Tatum, Brown, Rozier) played brilliantly and made the fans almost forget about Irving and Hayward.

This season, with the two stars healthy and playing again, everyone expected the Celtics to be the East’s top dog and a contender. But in reality, the team is struggling. They are currently only 8th in the east with a 9-9 record. Way worse than expected, maybe even alarmingly worse.

This led to Kyrie Irving get angry and annoyed with the whole situation. After the Celtics’ loss against the New York Knicks last night, someone wished Kyrie Irving a ‘Happy Thanksgiving’. Kyrie left the locker room saying he doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving:

 

“Fuck Thanksgiving.”

 

Irving has Native American roots from his mom’s side. His mom sadly passed away when he was a little kid. While Thanksgiving is viewed by many as a celebration of the conquest of Native Americans, making it one of the most controversial holidays in the western world, Kyrie Irving’s reaction most likely originates from frustration.

NBA fans, as expected, found this tweet…
