I don’t understand the Kyrie Irving free agency rumors. I never have. Kyrie is going to consider the Knicks? Kyrie is going to consider the Nets? Does anyone know how laughable that sounds! In fact, I wrote an entire in-depth piece why those things make zero sense. Has the entire Knicks fan base developed some sort of a severe case of amnesia? If you were still contemplating whether Kyrie would actually consider leaving the Celtics then you might want to change your opinion.
“It’s like, man, if you only knew how special this organization was, and how special these guys are in this locker room…(Irving said via NBC Sports Boston) even if I had the inclination to test free agency, Boston’s gonna be like, ‘No, you’re coming back’. And I’m fine with that”
Winning is the most important thing to Kyrie despite what you might think. Leaving LeBron was a no-brainer. LeBron makes all of his teammates worse so it was no surprise that Kyrie put up his most efficient season of his career during his first year in Boston despite struggling with injuries for the entire season. Banner 18 is coming.
