Kyrie doing pass-in to mid-block 1-on-1ís. KD, PG13, Oladipo, Devin Booker, Myles Turner participating. As expected, these guys donít miss much.   ;)

One of these things is not like the other...
ďWhen an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.Ē

Leviticus 19:33-34

Where did you see Austin Rivers? I think you may be confusing him with Booker.

I've seen Kyrie called a prima donna more than once but I've never seen any evidence of it. Here he is, not healthy enough to play at Team USA training camp, so what does he do? He hangs out and throws entry passes for the team's one-on-one drill. Good teammate stuff.

It's also just a fun video to watch all these stars post up against each other. Durant looks huge. Devin Booker looks like a little kid. Myles Turner looks like fun. Oladipo looks like he's for real.

And here's another video titled "Kyrie Irving SHUTS DOWN Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook Argument!"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDD4vzfMwYc&feature=push-fr&attr_tag=X2W6RfM-EbCNxG5j-6

The video itself is kind of weak but you can see Kyrie stepping in and putting his USA teammates in their place in the beginning.

Do not get a lot of the Kyrie , wont say hate but lack of love on here. I hope he doesnt read it. I can totally see not wanting to play with LeBron but and granted not in the Boston area to see media what  bad has he done as a Celtic besides being hurt ?

I think he's just recruiting players for his next stop.

Edit: Yeah, I don't get the whole primadonna thing. He's different and he also knows he's very good but I don't see anything temperamental about him.

Well he's played one season here, and hasn't committed beyond this season. Maybe people don't want to celebrate too much or get attached when he isn't showing a ton of commitment from his end..

When asked about re-upping in Boston after next year, he was not just non-committal, but basically said nothing reassuring for Cs fans or management. Here's what he said:

Quote
"Well, I mean I know that question is going to come up a lot over the next year, just based upon where my deal is," Irving said. "And, you know, that time will arise and when it does, I think I'll have a better, clear, concise answer for a lot of people that are going to ask. Yeah, I just have to take it as being present with the Boston Celtics. You know, and just going into this year with the mindset of trying to win a championship."

.

The article went on to say:

Quote
Irving's answer wasn't the most reassuring for fans in Boston that want to see him stay in Celtic green for the foreseeable future, but it also isn't especially alarming as ambiguity is a common practice when it comes to Kyrie. Considering the success that the Celtics had this season - and how well they are set up for sustained success - it's somewhat difficult to picture him wanting to walk away. But, Irving did ask to be traded away from LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers after three consecutive Finals appearances and a title, so anything is possible

Kyrie’s vagueness here sucks for me as a Cs fan. And he had to know the repercussions of what he said and how it would be perceived. Kyrie is very media/culture savvy.

He easily could have said something on these lines:

“I love it here in Boston. Management, the coaches, my teammates and the fans all make this a great place to play. I’d love to be here for the rest of my career, BUT things don’t always work out as we plan and hope for...I’m here to win a championship this year and hopefully many more after that.”

He says that, and everyone is satisfied.

His intentional vagueness is costing him some love from some Cs fans, and deservedly so. You reap what you sew, right. Gotta give love to get love....

C’mon, Kyrie, play the (media BS) game! I know you know how to do it.

I could care less what Kyrie said to the media about reupping. Unlike players like IT, maybe he doesn't discuss his contract desires with the media. My guess is Danny and Brad have a pretty good idea about where Kyrie stands about resigning with the team.

Biggest surprise, to me - Myles Turner was a problem for all of them on D - even Durant. Unfortunately, he also missed a couple of bunnies when he had the ball...
