Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving, once beloved in Cleveland, is apparently in conflict with anyone, including fans of his former team.

Irving was fined 25,000 dollars by the NBA on Thursday for swearing at a Cleveland fan.

In a clip that has now gone viral, Irving was seen scolding Cav fans.

“Got y’all a championship and motherf\*\*\*ers still ungrateful.”

Irving, who spent his first six seasons with Cleveland, told the fan,”You’re all champions, and you’re still thankless men.”

Irving’s comments to the fan came during second quarter play of Brooklyn’s 114-107 loss on Monday that were captured on video and posted to Twitter.

Irving took one of the greatest shots in NBA history. His late 3-pointer in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals sealed the victory for the Cavs.

The NBA has been trying to eliminate profanity among the players and recently punished Irving’s teammate Kevin Durant and New York’s Julius Randle for using obscene language in interviews.

Irving’s exchange with the fan was part of an eventful return to his old stomping ground.
