Gordon Hayward's gruesome leg fracture and dislocated ankle last night made Kyrie Irving's anticipated return to The Land an afterthought.

But that doesn't mean that fans weren't closely watching Kyrie and LeBron James to see how the former teammates interacted before, during and after the Boston Celtics-Cleveland Cavaliers game. 

When Irving missed a game-tying 3-point attempt at the buzzer, cementing the Cavs' 102-99 home win, he and King James shared a brief hug that had Twitter and Instagram blowing up with these hilarious reactions.
