Nick Kyrgios was left fuming at ESPN experts for their allegedly incorrect take on the Boston Celtics' Jayson Tatum after Jaylen Brown won the MVP in the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals. The Boston Celtics narrowly defeated the Indiana Pacers 105-102 on Monday.

Jaylen Brown was recently crowned Eastern Conference Finals MVP. Brown was the standout performer against the Pacers, scoring 29 points and leading his team with an impressive average of 29.75 points per game which is probably his best playoff series performance.

While other players celebrated Brown's achievement as he lifted the MVP trophy, ESPN panelist Mike Greenberg suggested that Jayson Tatum didn't join in. Greenberg implied that Tatum seemed unconvinced about Brown winning the award as he didn't share in the celebration with his teammates.

"When Jaylen Brown wins that award and the moment that it happens. The rest of the team just goes crazy. They were all so genuinely excited for him. You did not seem to think that it was mirrored in Jayson Tatum," Greenberg had said to his co-panelists.

However, many including Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios disagreed with Greenberg's take. Kyrgios pointed out that Tatum was seen clapping and appeared genuinely happy for Brown's achievement.

"Bro is literally smiling and clapping. You guys are terrible."

Tatum also played a crucial role in the Celtics' victory, contributing 26 points with 13 rebounds and 8 assists.

Nick Kyrgios had a funny bicep conversation with Carlos Alcaraz

Nick Kyrgios recently asked World No. 3 Carlos Alcaraz to rate his biceps. This playful exchange was reminiscent of when Kyrgios was working as a panelist for Eurosport and initiated a funny conversation with the Spaniard during the Australian Open this year.

During the 2024 Australian Open, Nick Kyrgios had complimented Carlos Alcaraz on his impressive physique, asking if Alcaraz chose to wear a singlet because Kyrgios had done so in previous years, suggesting Kyrgios might have inspired Alcaraz's choice of wardrobe.

"I’ve noticed that you’re wearing the singlet and your biceps look amazing, your body looks amazing. Did you want to wear the singlet because I wore the singlet the last couple of years, is that where you got your inspiration from?" Kyrgios had asked.

Alcaraz had a hilarious response to that:

"I had to, you know, scare the opponents in a certain way! Not with my forehand or my backhand, with my arms."

Kyrgios reignited the bicep conversation on X recently by posting a photo of himself flexing his bicep and tagging Alcaraz with another humorous question.

"Carlos Alcaraz how did I do?" Kyrgios wrote.

Carlos Alcaraz has already advanced to the third round of the Roland Garros. The Spaniard defeated J.J. Wolf and Jasper De Jong in the first two rounds, respectively, and fixed his third-round meeting with Sebastian Korda.
