Do not get a lot of the Kyrie , wont say hate but lack of love on here. I hope he doesnt read it. I can totally see not wanting to play with LeBron but and granted not in the Boston area to see media what bad has he done as a Celtic besides being hurt ?
When asked about re-upping in Boston after next year, he was not just non-committal, but basically said nothing reassuring for Cs fans or management. Here's what he said:
"Well, I mean I know that question is going to come up a lot over the next year, just based upon where my deal is," Irving said. "And, you know, that time will arise and when it does, I think I'll have a better, clear, concise answer for a lot of people that are going to ask. Yeah, I just have to take it as being present with the Boston Celtics. You know, and just going into this year with the mindset of trying to win a championship."
The article went on to say:
Irving's answer wasn't the most reassuring for fans in Boston that want to see him stay in Celtic green for the foreseeable future, but it also isn't especially alarming as ambiguity is a common practice when it comes to Kyrie. Considering the success that the Celtics had this season - and how well they are set up for sustained success - it's somewhat difficult to picture him wanting to walk away. But, Irving did ask to be traded away from LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers after three consecutive Finals appearances and a title, so anything is possible
Kyrie’s vagueness here sucks for me as a Cs fan. And he had to know the repercussions of what he said and how it would be perceived. Kyrie is very media/culture savvy.
He easily could have said something on these lines:
“I love it here in Boston. Management, the coaches, my teammates and the fans all make this a great place to play. I’d love to be here for the rest of my career, BUT things don’t always work out as we plan and hope for...I’m here to win a championship this year and hopefully many more after that.”
He says that, and everyone is satisfied.
His intentional vagueness is costing him some love from some Cs fans, and deservedly so. You reap what you sew, right. Gotta give love to get love....
C’mon, Kyrie, play the (media BS) game! I know you know how to do it.
