Kyrie Irving on free agency: Boston Celtics' organization has 'consistency,' 'authenticity'

Kyrie Irving on free agency: Boston Celtics' organization has 'consistency,' 'authenticity'

Pairing Irving with Porzingis could very well be the start of a new era in The Big Apple, but the volatility factor of free agency is often understated, as there are too many moving pieces that can all fall out of place by the time the Knicks try to hammer out a deal. Trading two seasons of Hayward for one campaign with James is a worthwhile proposition. Those are the questions the Celtics hope to answer next season, when Irving returns to Boston's young and exciting roster.

In the meantime, he's wondering what the Celtics will look like when Hayward joins Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and the gang.

As for his own future in Boston? He didn't like the fact that he was the second option on the team behind LeBron James, and felt like he was undervalued by the Cavaliers coaching staff and management.

Boston will be healthy next season and depending on what happens with LeBron and his free agency, the Celtics should be considered the early favorite in the East. But as was the case in a recent interview with the New York Times, Irving declined to provide it.

"I would just say the consistency, the authenticity, and honesty, from everything that we're doing as a team and an organization", Irving said.

"I don't really think for him the basketball decision of saying 'oh, let me go team up with three All-Stars, ' I think at this point in his life it's more so of a lifestyle thing, you know, 'where my family going to be the most comfortable at?" "Our young guys [have experience] that sometimes other young guys in the league aren't necessarily afforded".

Well, according to Adam Kaufman, a beat reporter for the Boston Celtics, there's a slim chance Boston would consider trading their star free agent signing from 2017, but if they did, they better be ready to face the huge backlash.

Irving said that's a discussion to be had after the upcoming season. "They gained a lot of experience, and now it can only help us going forward".

Irving was a key part of Boston's season, where they finished with the number one seed in the Eastern Conference.

Celtics fans have seen the best and worst moments of James' career up close in personal. "I think around this time is probably 15 weeks until the third week in September -- not that I'm thinking about it or anything - so I'm excited to just really utilize this offseason to dedicate myself to my craft and things outside of it", he said.
