Kyrie Irving likes Thanksgiving, after all

Kyrie Irving does like Thanksgiving after all.

There was plenty of buzz after the Celtics' loss to the Knicks when, on his way out of the locker room, Irving proclaimed, "I don't celebrate that (expletive)," when wished a happy Thanksgiving. The C's star then followed up with, "(Expletive) Thanksgiving!"

But Thursday morning Irving's emotions had settled a bit, leading the guard to backtrack from his public disdain for Thanksgiving.

Ironically, Irving's previous tweet addressing Thanksgiving was very complimentary of the holiday (although it was seven years ago).
