1. Kyrie Irving – 2021
The Brooklyn Nets took on the Boston Celtics in the 2021 NBA postseason. One of the big storylines from this match-up was Irving’s return to TD Garden. Controversy arose when he appeared to step on the Celtics logo after the game. However, let’s remember that players spent the entire game running over it. In short, it’s really wasn’t that big a deal.
But one fan didn’t think so and took it upon themselves to assault Irving. They assaulted him by throwing a bottle in his direction. Police immediately arrested the attacker on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. That’s probably not what they were thinking when they flung a water bottle, but it was good enough.
