Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving has tweeted about his profane dismissal of Thanksgiving following Wednesday’s recreation, saying he went too far together with his feedback.
After being wished a contented Thanksgiving by a reporter following the Celtics’ 117-109 loss to the New York Knicks, Irving retorted that he does not have fun the vacation earlier than saying, “F— Thanksgiving.”
On Thursday, Irving took a extra respectful tone.
I spoke w/ frustration after last nights game and spoke words that shouldn’t be in a professional setting no matter what.
