Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios is a notorious Boston Celtics basketball fan.

He sometimes lets the loss of the Celtics affect his game a bit.

In the interview, Kyrgios was asked if the Celtics had

"any carryovers in their tennis. So Kyrgios revealed that he actually

"thrown tennis matches" if his favorite NBA team lost a close game.

Although the admission is shocking to most sports fans,

it is not at all surprising to those who know Kyrgios.

The Australian tennis star wrote an article for the Players

Tribune in 2016 detailing how he stayed until 4 a.m.

to watch the Celtics' first-round playoff win over the Hawks.
