    He’s not a leader 😒Celtics was #1 seed in the east without him

    It's not justified.
    He wanted his own team and be the key player and leader, he has now got everything and now he blames his teammates experience.
    Seriously Celtics are so pathetic everything they do wrong, the media and league hold their hand over them and find excuses.
    Lets just be honest, Celtics have been overrated this offseason and season and they don't live up to their hype.
    Gordon Heyward is so overrated and overpaid by the Celtics.
    The Celtics don't have their version of Giannis, Lebron James, Steph Curry, Kawhi Leonard or Anthony Davis. They are stuck with their overrated Kyrie Irwing and Gordon Heyward.
    Where is that mighty Celtics team I read about all summer that would be "the team to beat in the east" and wipe the whole league away and dethrone the warriors? It can't be that pile of shit that has played this season.

    Bostons problem imo is that they have too many talented players with too much ego and no guy that is head and shoulders above everybody, which usually creates a hierarchy of sorts.

    Kyrie Irving knows little about winning championships. He was a sidekick. Sidekicks often think that they can be the Superhero, but being a hero is a different responsibility.
    At my job, the people I supervise feel like I don't do anything, until I give them my role for a couple of days. Then they realize, they would rather just stick to their positions.

    Celtics aren’t compatible. LeBron deals with this on every team he’s on because he’s the most efficient player of all time (besides free throws). When it comes to carrying a team LeBron can willingly do that. On the other hand, Kyrie needs to integrate these guys to compliment his game

    As a point guard he has to speak up. It flows through him. Kyrie is great at his position but maybe he needs to find a way to jump his teammates off. Maybe it will come together for them.

    Bullshit Paul! You can say that. You've earned the right. Kyrie can say that to his teammates. He's earned the right. You can say it to the media because it is your job, but when Kyrie does he's doing exactly the wrong thing a supposed leader does and he's setting the table for his own departure.
    Kyrie is on on a team. He is not running with his own infrastructure. Kyrie, keep your bitchin' hid under that flat earth you believe in. You don't lead teammates by pissing on them in the press. You are not LeBron who had been to five finals before you ever played with him.

    it’s crazy how forgetful and selective people are these days with their comments being this is the same team to have all self proclaim they’ll own the “EAST” this current season prior to last year accomplishments. I’ve called it!!! I said this team is better off without the injury prone Irvin so as without Hayward knowing damn well such injury can change identity. Now here we are!!!
    Pressure my ass!!! It’s all egos and kyrie wouldn’t help such knowing he’s just as big, as theirs...

    • Flaming365
      Flaming365 Month ago

      I would love for Rondo to come back to the Celtics.


    Problem #1 - There offense is stagnant, Horford doesnt like being 6-9 265 and posting up so it is clogging the perimeter, its easy to guard guys that stand on the 3 point line
    Problem #2 - Hayward is not the same, his athleticism is GONE, his mindset is weak.
    Problem #3 - Rozier is upset cause he wants to play more
    Problem #4 - Tatum, Brown, Rozier know the A.D. sweeptstakes are coming.
    Problem #5 - Irving isn't happy

    The whole, "Player X has a ring." Therefore he knows how to win is so overblown. Yes, Kyrie has things that he's learned that he can teach some of the younger players. But lets remember, Boston went on that run last year WITHOUT Kyrie. What was going on then? Fact is, it's about talent and cohesiveness. Figuring out rotations. That team is loaded with talent. I've always felt their greatest challenge was figuring out their rotations + crunch time lineup. Kyrie isn't the ONLY player on that team that knows how to ball, simply because he has a ring.

  • Michael Barnes

    At this point of the season you gotta trade someone, if guys don’t want to be part of a championship team and want stardom let them experience it on a bottom dweller then. Sacrifice is key to win it all when you have a team like ours and whoever isn’t ready for that should go

  • Acorn Slim

    bullshit Paul. He only understands what it takes to win because he got to go through the process -- losing for 5 years, and then losing with LeBron, and then winning with LeBron. How is him whining going to help his teammates get experience?

      If things get as bad as the Celtics make it out to be...they'll be TRYIN' to get rid of Kyrie 'cause the rest of the team thinks that they'll be better without him.
      So we can either give them our pick...(which'll be high considerin' how bad we are now)...and a bum.
      Or...wait 'til they release him to pick him up.

      Actually, it's more of a players not fallin' in line because they feel they don't need him.
      So if he comes to the Bulls...I'm pretty sure they'd unanimously understand that he's the leader.

    How can we expect Kyrie to be a leader!? He didn't do ANYTHING before LeBron got there. Not a single playoffs win. And yet he's supposed to lead a "championship caliber" team.

  • Torrey Wallace

    I dont agree with Paul. I feel those young guys can win and win big. Kyrie was not a winner in Cleveland without lebron he wants to play hero ball not team ball. He wants to be the James Harden of the Celtics. Every player has too much talent to complain about who should be the closer. Any one of those players can close the game. Plus, Gordon Hayward made the best pass available with 2.9 seconds left on the clock. What is there to complain about?

    Let’s be honest. Kylie wanted to be “THE MAN” and the only superstar on a team. He now sees that weight is heavy as hell to carry and he can’t lift it onto is shoulders, so he’s laying the blame on the other players. But his teammates quickly found out that he is no LeBron. They are not going to defer to him because they believe he is no better than they are. They play with him everyday. They know !!!
