Why Max Kellerman Believes Celtics Should Look To Trade Kyrie Irving

The Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers have all been widely speculated as attractive destinations for King James to call home from 2018-19 onwards, but the Boston Celtics appear to be making a charge at acquiring the 14-time All-Star.

"To kind of have something like that unexpected, it was hurtful, because just a lot of what I wanted to accomplish with our guys and individually as one of the leaders of the team", Irving said.

Kyrie Irving is pondering that, a movie release, his future and LeBron's next decision.

Talking about his future with the Celtics, Irving, unsurprisingly, said he doesn't plan to sign an extension with the team this summer, which he's eligible to do. Irving would undoubtedly bring back a star player in any trade.

It's been a whirlwind of a calendar year for Celtics superstar Kyrie Irving. "I'm pretty sure management and I will have a talk, but that talk won't happen now". "We'll see what happens". "That's really the only thing I'm anxious about".

At the signing ceremony, Trump said he expected to "meet many times" in the future with Kim. "I said look at that view". Donald Trump played Kim Jong Un a Hollywood-style video hyping the prospect of peace, which cast Kim as its leading man.

"If I'm Boston you could do a few things". Beginning this summer, every key member of this year's team will be up for a new contract over the next three years: Marcus Smart and Aron Baynes this summer; Irving, Al Horford, Terry Rozier and Marcus Morris next summer; Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward in 2020; and Jayson Tatum in 2021.

"I'm just excited to see what that looks like, really getting that experience with [Gordon Hayward] and seeing what other pieces we have going forward", the 26-year-old guard told Robb. We all feel confident that we all have something to offer. Who, in his position, wouldn't say, 'Yes, this is where I want to be?'

"Yeah, I just have to take it as being present with the Boston Celtics".

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. "You saw guys that are literally going to be stars in this league for years to come". "Only beneficial. I love that they have that belief in themselves because they saw it firsthand what it was like to be on that big stage".

"The challenge is now we have championship pedigree", he said. Irving has earned every bit of that money, and absolutely nobody should have expected him to sacrifice something with a contract extension.
