The NBA star fined for profane language



Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving has been fined $50,000 for making obscene gestures on court

The NBA says the Brooklyn Nets guard directed profane language to the stands in their first game of plays-offs.

The incident took place when the Celtics beat the Nets at the weekend 115-114.

Kyrie Irving raises his middle finger towards the crowd.

The 30-year-old allegedly swore and raised his middle finger at the crowd who were booing him.

“I’m used to these antics and people being close nearby. It’s the same energy they have for me, I’m going to have the same energy for them.”


The Nets guard spent two years in Boston before leaving the team in 2019.

The controversial figure has defended his actions but says he understands it is a minority of fans.

Meanwhile, Power Forward Kevin Durant has also spoken out in support of his team-mate. He says fans can trigger playing to “react in the moment”.

The Nets will hope to even their best-of-seven series as they take on Boston in game two later this week.
