Kyrie Irving doesn't regret yelling profanity at fan who asked 'Where's LeBron?'

Kyrie Irving doesn't regret yelling profanity at fan who asked 'Where's LeBron?'”

Irving is seemingly trying to leave his history as a member of the Cavs behind him, it is yet to be seen, however, if fans in the stands will allow him to do so.

[The fan was] man enough to record it on video, then that's all him.

Without breaking stride or looking up, Irving shouts back, "S-- my d--!'"

While the video has been shared among National Basketball Association fans to laugh at Irving's response, the fact that it was captured will likely lead to the point guard cashing a check to the league.

Irving was questioned about the exchange with the Sixers fan earlier today and when asked whether he regretted how he responded, he said: "Hell no".

"At the end of the day, we're human", Irving told reporters.

Irving said he talked to the league office about his outburst on Saturday but was waiting to hear if he'd be fined. Glad that he got his (social media name) out there, five seconds of fame and it going viral ...

"I take full responsibility for it", said Irving. It's in heat of the moment and frustrations arise, we were at halftime, we were down by 4, in an environment, a season-opener in Philly. He said what comes of it is up to the league, and then repeated himself in saying he takes responsibility but doesn't regret it.

The Celtics ended up beating the 76ers 102-92 with Irving finishing with a game-high 21 points to go along with six rebounds, four assists and two steals.
