  • Published: 14 May 2019
  • Terry Rozier says he was playing in the shadows of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward all season for the Boston Celtics and felt "thrown all the way in the back seat" when Kyrie announced that he would stay with the Celtics if welcomed back.

        There was no anonymous Celtic. The coach had one of the most talented teams in the league and not enough playing time for all of them and when many of them did get playing time they had to adjust to each other. Most of the time it leads to disgruntled players and the only resolution is to trade a couple of players and establish a starting lineup and a rotation.

              Kyrie didn't take the Cavaliers to the playoffs nor did he take the Celtics, mean while the Celtics went last season without him. Very skilled PG, but leader, very questionable.

                                      End of the day Kyrie trash. If it wasn't for Lebron, Cavs would've never even made it to the finals. After he left, Celtics didn't make it.

                                          Bad interview. He said a whole lot. Contradicted himself the entire time. He complains in the interview while saying, I’m not one to complain. He better back up every word of “I’m a top point guard...” this season.

                                              He has the ceiling of an allstar Point guard. I saw him destroy bledsoe and rising up on to the occasion when it matters in the playoff. He is a 20 point player at Charlotte. Watch

                                              He spoke for the team in reality, and this is mostly targeted at the guys chirping in their ears every play. It's likely Kyrie and Smart, since they are very vocal in their displeasure. Kyrie - clearly - gave Brad Stevens a lot of shit, trying to be his own LeCoach/LeGM. Smart is just the type to hold others accountable.

                                              We can deal with Smart because he's a baller, however we'll be better without Kyrie's pure antics. He's undoubtedly the most skilled player we've had in some time, but that attitude was ridiculous.

                                                      You're a "Top PG in the League" but yet Kyrie leaves they dont give you the big money to play PG, They give $141mil to Kemba Walker to play PG..🤔 For The Celtics. Seems like if you're a Top PG there would be no need to bring in Kemba Walker.

The team actually played better without both Kyrie and Gordon Hayward.

                                                                    • Haunted Astolfo Beantown plushie
