I just thought you guys might want to see it. Helps us better understand Kyrie's personality.

Awesome stuff

Kyrie loves Brad and loves his teammates

I will be shocked if he leaves Boston

-knee was really infected played through it last season until Houston. Now feels like himself
-can start playing basketball a month from now
-really excited about this next year. Said the wings they have are unreal
-crowds at Boston unreal. Never felt out of a game
-felt guilty about the Hayward injury because he threw a tough ally oop to him
-had dinner the other the night with Stevens. Loves Brad and this staff.
-Wants to play hoops. Not interested in drama.
-says the offseason will be intense with player movement
-Biggest factor in where he plays is his personal happiness on and off the court
-Said Tatum is Kobe like. A legit freak and is just ridiculous
-Wants to be valued for what he brings
-Only plays 2K with the Celtics...8 man rotation
-says in the first six minutes of a big game he is coming out aggressive. But wants to get teammates in a flow
-He is a different cat. A lot of off court interests including watching CNBC
-had a port in his arm for IV antibiotics and that is why he missed a lot of half’s and games. Infection was brutal
-He tries to be KG like and is hands on leading in Boston
-no blame on losses with this group

One thing I took away, right in the beginning of the pod Bill asks, looking back on asking for a trade what was the number 1 thing you wanted. Kyrie said something along the lines of: I wanted somewhere I could go and spend the next few years, play a high level of basketball with other good players.

I can’t imagine him leaving, and I also wonder if we are really pushing hard for Khawi, and if we are it certainly won’t be Kyrie in that package.

Said Jaylen is super smart and one of the most interesting guys to talk to.

Next season is going to be fun but a challenge because of of expectations.

Thinking year to year. Wants to be focused on what the team can accomplish

Knee is feeling really good.

Biggest takeaway for the folks that think he wouldn’t mind playing with Bron again. Not happening sounds like he wants no part of that.

Brad Stevens would. As would Hayward. They had their hearts broken by Duke.
