You probably can bet your 401k on Kyrie Irving getting booed in his return to Boston. But for Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, he doesn't want to see Irving get jeered. The now-Brooklyn Nets guard, who, of course, spurned the Celtics after verbally committing to re-signing is set to make his return to TD Garden next week (poetically, it will be on the eve of Irving's favorite holiday, Thanksgiving).
