Celtics Star Takes Shot At Kyrie Irving
A Celtics star took a shot at Kyrie Irving this week.
It is no secret that many of Irving’s teammates in Boston hated him. Most just were not willing to go on the record about it.
That all changed this week.
While appearing on The Woj Pod this week, Jaylen Brown publicly what most already knew: the team likes Kemba Walker way more than they Irving.

“He didn’t point fingers. He didn’t blame others,” he said of Walker.
“He said that we’re going to be alright, we’re going to learn from this … he said things that were more uplifting.”
Brown did not stop there.
“Usually what you’re used to seeing, maybe somebody goes into a corner, doesn’t talk to nobody,” he continued.
“Instead of starting to hang out with their teammates, they start to hang out with their agent, their friends, their entourage … nothing changed even though the times got more difficult.
“When things get a little bit difficult, that’s when you get to see somebody’s true makeup and character.”
The Celtics are thriving without Irving this year. Fresh off a dominant 139-107 defeat of the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston is now 28-14 through 42 games and comfortably sits at No. 4 in the Eastern Conference.
