Glen Davis clearly believes in basketball karma.
Nets guard Kyrie Irving exited Sunday’s playoff sport vs. the Bucks after spraining his proper ankle. Irving would later be dominated out of the sport with the injury. The Nets would fall to the Bucks in Game 4 107-96, sending the Eastern Conference semifinal collection again to Barclays Center even at 2-2.
Davis, a member of the Celtics’ 2008 championship-winning squad, had some ideas on the injury. In an Instagram reply, Davis appeared to suggest that it was a result of basketball karma after Irving stomped on Boston’s middle courtroom brand earlier within the playoffs.
“Karma is real. Energy is real no matter what you guys say,” Davis stated in one other IG remark. “That logo means something negative or positive. Ky wished that on hisself (sic). Energy is real, always have respect for other no matter if its (sic) a logo are (sic) not.”

After the Nets’ Game 4 victory over the Celtics within the first spherical, Irving greeted teammates at middle courtroom and stomped on the drawing of Lucky the Leprechaun, the workforce’s mascot. A fan was ejected from TD Garden, arrested and charged with felony assault for allegedly throwing a water bottle at Irving following the stomp.
Davis’ feedback are fairly baseless, all issues thought of. Karma is not a tangible impact, in spite of everything. What is tangible is that the Nets and Bucks head again to Brooklyn with the collection tied and each Irving and James Harden’s standing for Game 5 unsure.
By the best way, it wasn’t the identical ankle that stomped on Lucky, simply to truth examine. That was Irving’s left one. The injury was to Irving’s proper one.
Think earlier than you remark, people.
