After his brief exchange in Philadelphia with a 76ers fan went viral Friday night, Kyrie Irving showed no remorse for his lewd comments when he was asked about it at the Celtics practice facility in Waltham on Saturday.
The incident was captured on video when Irving and the Celtics were heading into the locker room at halftime.
"Kyrie, where's LeBron?" yelled the 76ers fan.Irving responded with a vile suggestion.

"Hell no," Irving said. "Man enough to record it on video, that's on him. I'm glad he got his ad name out there, and his five seconds of fame and it's gone viral. That's the social media platform we live on.
"I take full responsibility for what I said. You move on."The NBA hasn't officially announced a fine for Irving which will most likely happen sometime in the near future.
