    Celtics, Lakers or Knicks — Where should Kyrie Irving play next season?

      The Suns. Let him play in the boondocks. I said it before, he was afraid of the accountability factor playing with James.

      If he want to be a team leader..wait for NBA's announcement of a new franchise coming soon...

      Wrong Brad Stevens is to blame 99%

        Blame has to go around to everyone, not just kyrie. Stevens could not manage his players' egos but people will ignore this.

          Truth is Gordon Hayward a scrub and is just a systematic player yet Brad Stevens was putting the ball in his hands that along with Kyrie being a drama queen

            There is a difference between being a great player and a leader. Kyrie wanted the glory, without trying to understand the challenges of leadership.

            There were signs. James is not a Westbrook or Harden. Irving had quite a bit of the ball. Irving couldn’t see that. He wanted to leave, because he was worried that James would leave first and leave him in a bad situation. He only wanted to be a leader on a team in a good situation, because if James left Irving would have gotten what he wanted.

            He goes to Boston and was faced with the harsh reality of how difficult being a leader truly is. Now, the rumor has been that he’s ready to team up with Durant in New York and now we see why. Reality set in.

              Kyrie is a bust as a captain that’s what they deserve he never did it on his own as a captain in Cleveland until labron got there so what makes you think he’ll do it now when he’s a ball dominant player that doesn’t like to pass the ball I knew it was going to be an issue from the moment I found out he’s going to play for the Celtics smh I’m so mad my team went home this way

                    Skip is garbage, how is a 4 seed losing to a 1 seed an historic collapse? They won 1 game!!! An historic collapse is blowing a 3-1 lead, or an 8 seed taking down a 1 seed.

                      Kyrie never ever could lead.

                        I think the Celtics should sign him if they can and trade him. He just isn't good enough or mentally strong enough for the Celtics or their fans.

                          Irving only good with James. Celtics let us down to complete the Boston sweep. Bruins can still get the Boston hat trick with a Stanley Cup. Go Boston! Go Bruins! Go Patriots!

                            It seems like the Celtics just quit, just laid down starting in the second half of game 2. They played great in game 1 and were basically tie with the Bucks for the 1st half of game 2. Then it was all downhill. They just seemed like they were going through the motions on defense and couldn't make a shot. I think they thought they were gonna just march through the Bucks after game 1 and gave up when they came roaring back. Kyrie didn't seem to be on the same page with the rest of the team and they just seemed lackadaisical.

                              Kyrie's style is not built for the playoffs. He's got insane basketball skills but it's not energy efficient. He can fake the guy 5 times and embarrass them but if you're really good at 1 fake, that's all you need.

                                  Bro we could of had a top 10 player if we didnt trade for Kyrie. Now he is leaving. Thank God we r better without Kyrie. Now let's resign Terry Rozier to a long term contract n next year C US RISE AGAIN

                                        I said this two years ago, he said he wanted his own team, he went to the deepest roster other than GSW and was simply not ready.
                                        A poor leader, he is not very coachable and his style of iso ball only works at the end of playoff games when the floor is spread with man to man coverage with the game on the line.
                                        It doesn’t help you get to the playoffs though or progress in the playoffs.

                                                            Brad Stevens has to take some blame. Just as styles make fights styles make teams. Beautiful ball is not natural to Kyrie. The coach has to impose his style on the player. What if Jordan had rejected the triangle? The coach must call plays to create the on court MOVEMENT until it becomes NATURAL for the player. Kyrie is a KILLER CLOSER. He was successful with LeBron because the ball was in LeBron's hand when both were on the court. He was in effect the shooting guard and LeBron was point.

As a Celtics fan this was embarrassing. I had high hopes for this season after last year. We just need to focus on the younger guys and see what happens from there.
