Brad Stevens roasted on Twitter for appearing to leave Celtics' Game 1 loss to Bucks early

By , Audacy

The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Boston Celtics quite handedly on their home court for Game 1 on Sunday afternoon.

So much so, that it appeared as if Celtics president of basketball operations Brad Stevens decided to stop watching mid-way through the fourth quarter.

As Milwaukee extended its lead to 92-75 with 7:35 to go in the game, ABC cameras panned to Stevens, who appeared to have seen enough as he was shown patting someone in his suite on the back as he headed for the door on the way out.

Now, obviously, it does not necessarily mean he left the arena.

He could have headed back to his office to watch the rest of the game, got a head start on preparing for a postgame meeting with the coaching staff or something as simple as just having to use the bathroom (although it appeared he was leaving for good).

Still, the timing and optics of his departure caught on camera led to many on social media roasting the former head coach for essentially becoming the SpongeBob “ight I’m out” meme come to life.

Again, it probably is not as bad as it looked, but Twitter was not going to let a moment like that just sneak by.
