Celtics guard Terry Rozier is making his way through all of the shows on ESPN today. The soon-to-be free agent started out on “Get Up” by taking subtle shots at both Kyrie Irving and Brad Stevens.
Rozier stopped short of blaming the two of them for not making it back to the Eastern Conference Finals, but that seemed to be what he was hinting at.
Rozier then moved on to “First Take” and made it clear he will not be coming off the bench for the Celtics next year if he decided to return. That’s a big if too, he should have plenty of teams looking to add him to their starting five.

Rozier didn’t stop there. After being asked about a question about Kyrie and Gordon Hayward, he stopped himself from saying the coaching staff treated both of them differently than the rest of the team, meaning he feels the coaching staff treated them differently.
Max Kellerman: "You were a good team not a great one. How much is a result of Kyrie, how much is a result of the young guys not adjusting properly to Kyrie, or is it a Gordon Hayward issue?"

Bottom line, all of the dysfunction that was rumored to be going on in Boston this season was one thousand percent true. Kyrie and Hayward were treated differently than the rest of the team and the rest of the team didn’t like it. Brad Stevens would implement gameplans in practice and routinely not follow them.
Sounds like a recipe for disaster. It also sounds like a recipe for Rozier to sign with a new team.
