Kyrie Irving’s Message About The Boston Celtics

Kyrie Irving’s Message About The Boston Celtics

Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics experienced something of a messy divorce. Understandably, there are still a lot of hurt feelings stemming from that.

The ugly dynamic between the two sides was on full display when Celtics fans called for Irving’s arrest and he was the victim of an ugly bottle-throwing incident.

Last year Boston added insult to Irving’s injury when they swept his Brooklyn Nets out of the first round of the playoffs.

This week, Irving addressed how he felt after that.

“It was meant to happen like that,” he said.

“Motivation, bro. We needed that humbling experience, especially going against the Celtics. It was already built in to be that matchup.

“We gonna see ’em again. We gonna have to. They gonna be where they gonna be. But those young-uns over there in Boston, bro, I got to see them grow up. So to see them doing what they did last year, on the Finals stage, making it that far, I’m glad they had to go through us.”

So there you have it.

Between his relationship with Kevin Durant coming under scrutiny and the Los Angeles Lakers’ failed attempt to acquire him – Irving has been in the headlines nonstop this summer.

It has just been one thing after another.

This will be something of a defining year for Irving’s career. The Nets have enough talent top to bottom to compete for a title. If they win it all or come close to it, and assuming Irving plays a significant role, he could seriously repair his reputation to a massive degree.

Should the opposite occur, though – don’t be shocked if he doesn’t end up having as many takers for his services in the offseason as he himself might imagine he will.
