Nets’ Kyrie Irving confronts wrong fan after being molested

Something that was said angered Kyrie Irving so much that the Nets star confronted a fan on their way back to the locker room at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.

Television cameras showed Irving quickly turning back on his way back to the locker room at halftime in the Nets’ eventual 110-98 win over the Knicks after driving past two fans.

“East Coast basketball at its finest, people just yelling random stuff out of the crowd.” Irving told reporters after the game. “Wanted the reaction, they got one.”

The All-Star caliber guard had a few words with one of the fans, who appeared to snap a quick cellphone photo of the Nets star. Irving, who appears to be asking, “Who said that?” said in the video that the person he was speaking to was not the perpetrator.

“I think I tapped the wrong person, so I apologize to the random guy I tapped,” Irving said. “He looked at me with great surprise on his face. I didn’t want to tap him. Someone said something and I was just fed up with our performance.”

Irving, who had 24 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in the win, became a polarizing figure this season after deciding not to comply with New York City’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates. It left him unable to attend home games at the Barclays Center and MSG until new mayor Eric Adams announced an exception to the rule for athletes and performers last month.
