Irving dribbles around question of long-term future in Boston

Irving dribbles around question of long-term future in Boston

"Concerned" might be a strong word right now, but if Irving is going to treat this like a business - which he should - then Ainge has to as well.

"I mean it sucked, man", Irving said. Irving, who is set to make just over $21 million this year, will nearly certainly be set to sign for even more money in a new contract, whether in Boston or elsewhere. With that being said, Irving is taking a slow-and-steady approach to his rehab so that he can return by the start of training camp in late September without facing any setbacks along the way.

The talk of LeBron James considering the Boston Celtics in free agency might be nothing more than speculation, but it's fair to wonder whether Kyrie Irving would be OK with playing alongside the guy whose shadow he wanted to escape last offseason with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Teams will always be preparing for their absolute best against them, and nobody will take them off guard.

"My hope is that maybe we could limit it to maybe one question a day about what I'm doing next year", Irving said.

Despite the disappointment of losing a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, there is real optimism around the future of the Boston Celtics.

Watching him play is such a privilege in itself that all arguments become moot. And yet his relationship with his country remains complex.

Considering Irving's short-winded responses, it seems likely that he would rather compete against James in the pursuit of a championship, than play alongside him. I'll believe these things when I see them. "And, you know, that time will arise, and when it does, I think I'll have a better, clear, and concise answer for a lot people that are going to ask". "Really integrating myself with our team again and really focus on winning a championship", Irving said. It's just a matter of whether they can keep their core in place for years to come and whether the young budding stars develop as anticipated. "We'll see what happens".

"That's what makes it even more exciting", he said. "I'm pretty sure management and I will have a talk, but that talk won't happen now". I wouldn't put it past the Celtics to make a insane deal but a deal for LeBron James isn't one they should make.

The Celtics certainly have the core to win a championship.

Remember: Irving was only available for a group interview with reporters in Boston on Tuesday because he was promoting his new "Uncle Drew" movie.

Kyrie will be coveted by many teams, but there is one in particular that might generate the most buzz: the New York Knicks. "They experienced something that a lot of times young guys in the league aren't necessarily afforded".
