  • Published on May 14, 2019

    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

  • CHi
    CHi 10 days ago +5

    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.

    To quote the Rock: KNOW YOUR ROLE, AND SHUT YOUR MOUTH!!! I hope you younger guys are watching this. It's not about you!!!! Dozier is a role player complaining about the star Player. Smh. Know your role is a key in life. Not setting for anything but know who you are in the situation.

    All he did was keep it real he knew he was leaving and so was kyrie and kyrie is a shitty ass teammate

    Rozier was the soul of that team. Its sad nobody realized it. You can tell what type of teammate he is. Btw if you watch his highlights he's the closest thing to Iverson. Charlotte gon be nice real soon

  • H Knight
    H Knight 15 days ago +1

    He's exactly right, Kyrie is a shooting guard, not a point guard, he holds on to the ball too long and don't get his teammates involve until the clock has run down and they have to take a bad shot. The team actually played better without both Kyrie and Gordon Hayward.

      U dont know much do you, Hayward is too be paid more than Terry,Brown and Tatum So Duhh he's gonna Start, And a ESPN reporter had ACKNOWLEDGED that The younger players came into the season playing more ISo ball and it was Kyrie who told them to pass, and that Brad Steven's Saw it as well. Shows how much They truly understand The business side of the Game, Bigger Contract =More Minutes

    Lol you should adapt your game to Hayward and Irving. Those two are stars, they paid their dues. I think this interview points to his weaknesses. Good players adapt.

    Screw Kyrie i'm with Rozier. These 2 'Allstars" have done jackshit in Boston except stall the progression of the young guys

      ROCKSTAR STATUS 17 days ago

      Blame one all star for the rest of the team not doing as good. Totally sheepish

      ROCKSTAR STATUS 17 days ago

      Kyrie is an all star who played hardly as much minutes as he did with Cleveland. The Celtics benched him a lot for mediocre players. You can’t expect championships using your bench half the game and relying on string beans who average between 6-13 points a game that RARELY drive it to the hoop. But blame the superstar who’s stats clearly say he’s better than everyone on that team. The media refuses to talk about TATUMS SLUMP or AINGES horrible decisions

      If anyone shoots like rozier
      They will be burnt until they retire
      U won't have a career 39% shooting and call urself a top point guard
      Last season he played 25 mins a game down to 23 games this year
      Not much difference
      He kept on chucking shots after shots
