Kyrie Irving Makes Ambiguous Statement About Future With Celtics

Kyrie Irving Makes Ambiguous Statement About Future With Celtics

While these reports are just talk at this point, while Irving was in Cleveland, he had expressed interest in going to NY to play for the Knicks on multiple occasions. "They passed a lot of expectations, and I couldn't be more proud of them".

Celtics All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving said Tuesday that a contract extension this summer doesn't make sense for him and that while he's already bracing for the daily questions about his future, his sole focus is on getting healthy for next season and helping Boston take another step toward title contention.

Boston reached the Eastern Conference Finals, despite not having either Irving or Hayward to call upon in the playoffs. "In this business, I've kind of experienced it all", Irving said when asked about reuniting with James.

Irving, who missed the end of the regular season and the entirety of the Celtics' playoff run due to injury, said he's "feeling good".

Now on the positive side, it seems like Irving is focused on winning a championship.

"For me, I'm just glad everyone got to learn how special they were on a bigger stage".

With such an outstanding playing career behind him, Guti should automatically demand the respect of the Real Madrid players.

On whether playing what is essentially a one-year contract could have an adverse impact on the Celtic process, Irving said, "The focus is exclusively on winning a championship next year".

The Celtics expect Irving to be completely recovered by the start of training camp in the fall. I'd been talking about how great they were.

"That's the type of attitude and effort you love to be a part of", he said. Some of their numbers particularly probably didn't look as appealing to the outside looker, but they were always locked in.

In order for the money to match up, Ainge would need to send Irving, Hayward or Al Horford to Cleveland in addition to a batch of expiring contracts, such as Marcus Morris or Terry Rozier, and a pick from their still-burgeoning stash of first-rounders over the next few years. I'm excited. What makes it even more exciting and the challenge is now we have championship pedigree.

Regardless of what the reaction from the local crowd would be, James coming to Boston is far-fetched but is not out of the realm of possibility. "Our young guys [have experience] that sometimes other young guys in the league aren't necessarily afforded".

Irving was finally out of LeBron's shadow.
