Looks like Celtics President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge, would like to be rid of all the baggage that comes with Kyrie Irving.
During a recent appearance on Colin Cowherd’s podcast, NBA insider Jeff Goodman not only expressed doubt that Irving will re-up in Boston, but also implied Ainge wouldn’t be to upset if he breaks his vow and bolts for another team.
“I’d be surprised if he stays in Boston,” Goodman said. “You see his body language. You hear enough smoke, you know something’s going on here. Obviously, Kyrie’s kinda moody, he’s got a tight inner circle. So, I’m not sure how much validity some of (the rumors have), but again, I don’t expect him to be in Boston. “You could see it in the locker room and with his teammates, that they almost don’t know how to take to Kyrie Irving. I’ve known him a long time and, honestly, he’s become tough to like. … I’m not sure how many people in Boston — including Danny Ainge — would be that unhappy if Kyrie Irving leaves.”
I can’t blame Ainge for wanting Kyrie out of there.
At some point a franchise is better off without guys who don’t want to be there, no matter how good they are.
Players are free to sign with teams beginning July 1st, so we will see what happens with Kyrie in Beantown.
