Kyrie Irving Confirms He Won't Sign Extension With Celtics This Offseason


Irving made it clear, however, that management will not decide in a vacuum. The two partnered to win a title in 2016 that Irving clinched with the game-winning 3-pointer in the final minute of Game 7, but at age 25, Irving was ready for a new challenge and he until injuring his knee, he delivered.

"I mean it sucked, man", Irving said. "They gained a lot of experience, and now it can only help us going forward". "The fact that we're even having those conversations and I'm a part of it, I'm thankful for". Keep in mind, Irving is still on a bargain contract, and knows that he is in line for his first real massive pay day. "We'll see what happens". "Obviously, the speculation ... it's inevitable". So you don't really try to control that narrative. "Just trying not to push it too hard".

As for the draft, the Celtics have 27th pick and should be able to find a solid bench player at that point. The five-time All-Star would be eligible for a far more lucrative contract if he waited and re-signed with Boston next year. And his injury history won't affect that concept.

Mintaro Oba, a former US State Department diplomat specialising in the Koreas, said the summit was more about style and symbolism. Given his hawkish views, Bolton was described as a "human scum and a bloodsucker" by North Korea's propaganda outlets in 2003.

It's been a whirlwind of a calendar year for Celtics superstar Kyrie Irving. "That's my hope", he said. "So I'm excited to just really utilize this offseason to dedicate myself to my craft and things outside of it". "I think that's the exciting part about all this is that when you're shaping up to gear up to be a championship-caliber team for years to come - which I think Danny [Ainge] has echoed for a little bit".

"If I'm Boston you could do a few things". Until I get to that point, then I can't really answer any questions.

"We're all competitors", he said. That's what we all compete for. After all that, then we can start taking about his 2019 free agency.

Dashcam captures officer rescuing wandering child from busy road
According to a Naperville police spokesman, the boy ran out of his mother's home when she wasn't looking. At one point, a large truck can be seen passing within a few feet of the child at a high rate of speed.

Irving acknowledged he has that authenticity with the Celtics. "I couldn't be more proud of them".

Irving was forced to watch Boston's run to the Eastern Conference finals from the bench, which was not easy for a guy who already has one championship to his name. "For me, it's my job to just stay present".

"I'm glad everyone was able to see how special they were on a bigger stage", he said. Some of their numbers probably didn't look as appealing to the outside-looker, but they were just - they were always locked in.
