Report: Source says 'ignore the noise about Kyrie not liking it in Boston'




NBC Sports BostonJuly 12, 2018, 3:24 PM MDT




While Kyrie Irving has remained non-committal all summer about his future in Boston beyond next season, a Celtics team source tells RealGM.com's Keith Smith that the narrative of Kyrie being dissatisfied is just so much noise that should be ignored.

With Kyrie Irving in Las Vegas to watch the Summer Celtics it's time to share this note from a team source: "Ignore that noise about Kyrie not liking it in Boston and about being jealous of the kids and the attention they get. This team is closer than any team I can remember."

2:13 PM - Jul 12, 2018


It fits in with what our DJ Bean wrote about Kyrie earlier Thursday. Perhaps Celtics fans are worrying over nothing amid reports of Irving eyeing the Knicks as an eventual landing spot or being uncomfortable with all the media attention young teammate Jayson Tatum is getting.

Irving, who missed the playoffs while recovering from a procedure on his knee, wasn't on the bench to root his teammates on in their Game 7 loss to the Cavs in the Eastern Conference finals - he was home in New Jersey after surgery for a deviated septum. That fueled more speculation about his commitment to his teammates.

Kyrie was back on the bench Thursday, along with teammate Jaylen Brown, to watch the C's Summer League playoff game against the Knicks.

Have ignored it from the start.

There's almost as much useless noise generated by the sports media as other news departments.

I think with a player like Kyrie, in terms of his personal makeup, you have him for as long as you have him, without expecting he'll be around forever. I think he's a great fit, and hope he plays on a couple of title teams in Boston. If not, next man up. Rozier or whoever that may be.

No sleep lost.

that was my first thot when I heard he was at the game. And to think that all this BS is based on one article that was written before Kyrie even came to the Celtics. the amazing part is how many bought into that crap. The internet is surely a strange and mysterious entity. affraid bounce

Kyrie and Celtic Jaylen Brown show up at a Celtics-Knicks game and Kyrie's there to watch a Knick team that only has 2-3 players that will make the club because he wants to be a Knick.   Rolling Eyes  

Remember when NY bloggers and sportswriters had Danny trading Rondo to them for a bunch of aftermarket spare parts to try to make their fan base believe their team wasn't always going to be the worst big market team in any sport in any city in any country?

Maybe we should start a thread about all the bs stories out there, like he wants to leave Celtics to play with Jimmy Butler, yeah right...??? In a couple years Jaylen and Jayson will surpass him at every level, if their not there already and Jayson has the Duke connection with Uncle Drew. Uncle Drew knows he can do special things here.

There are many total bs stories out there, but there are just as many incomplete or "lack of facts" stories as well.

The total bs stories are the ones like "Kyrie wants to go to NY".  Some fans understand the context of when he said that and some don't.  The "truth" isn't always apparent to all.  Some concluded that he said that long before he was traded to the Celtics so therefore the statement is meaningless.  Other fans bought into it totally and concluded that we should immediately trade Kyrie for a bucket of balls and good riddance to the total loser!

We had the same result here with the "Kyrie wants to join up with Butler".  Some said "so what, that's crazy talk" and others said "screw you Kyrie and the horse you rode in on!"  Sports fans in general are a passionate bunch and many take it personal when there is a perceived slight towards their team.  The knee-jerk reaction often gets the best of us.

The "lack of facts" stories are like the "AAU players punch the refs".  Some fans went off the rails with that one, going at each other as to who carries the blame, the players or the refs.  Some grasped at titbits of information that supported their viewpoint, but the "truth" of what really precipitated the fight will not be known for some time.

Stephen Colbert invented the word, "Truthiness", and it totally defines what was happening with the media 12 years ago and continues today.  It even became the word of the year in 2006.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-word-of-the-year-truthiness/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truthiness

People often believe what they read, one way or another, depending on their feelings, regardless of the facts.  So what is "truth" and what is "BS" is often hard to determine.

One way or the other, as long as members of this board try to determine what the real facts are (did I really just type that, as if the word "facts" needs a qualifier?) in a convivial way, its all good.

I think the Celtics are the best team in the EAST.

I posted after the Celtics / Knicks game last night

"Kyrie was sitting with Jaylen Brown and I was thinking, that is an impressive back court duo."

I think there was too much over reaction on this very forum to reports about Kyrie wanting to play in NY and wanting to play with Jimmy Butler.  Some news feeds makes something out of nothing and here we are ready to trade Kyrie because he will not tell us he wants to stay with the Celtics after next season.

Watching Jaylen develop and seeing what a great pairing there is between him and Kyrie as well as Kyrie and all of his teammates gives me the assurance that him leaving is not something that any of us should be concerned about.

I am very guilty of this at times. Sometimes I think it is more important to be convivial about the players and the team than the other posters. BUT I KNOW THIS IS NOT WHAT SAM THOUGHT. So I try to do better.
