Well, here we go again! Kyrie Irving is back in the news regarding the Celtics and SURPRISE…it’s another negative story. We’ve heard it all now. Kyrie didn’t like playing with his younger teammates. He started to question the coaching style of Brad Stevens. There were reports that even Kyrie and Danny Ainge were at ends by the end of the tenure. Well now, we have something else that doesn’t make Kyrie look great either. According to Jackie MacMullan, Kyrie Irving wouldn’t sign charitable basketballs that the rest of the Celtics team signed.
Jackie MacMullan: At the completion of the regular season, #Celtics set up 100 balls for charitable partners. Everyone signed them except Kyrie Irving. Pressed to do it, say sources, he was neither aggressive nor confrontational. He merely said, "No, I'm not interested in that."

This Makes Kyrie Look Like A Jerk
“No, I’m not interested in that.” Are you freakin’ kidding me, Kyrie? You don’t want to take the time to sign a basketball or two for charity, that a kid might love to have in his bedroom? The amazing part here is that there was no clear answer as to why he didn’t want to sign the basketballs. There was no interest there? I don’t have interest in driving to really far away places to coach baseball. But, I still do it because I have to and I love coaching. This just irritates me to the core.
It Shows How Badly Kyrie Wants Out Of Boston
If you want out of Boston so bad, then good. GET OUT! I defended Kyrie Irving for so long because I loved his talent on the court. But you know what? If you want to be out of a place so badly, walk away and don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Irving wants a fresh start for whatever reason, and the Celtics need to move onto someone else to run the point guard position. (Hi Kemba Walker!)
This story just proves it is time for both sides to part ways for good. Kyrie never fit into what Boston stood for, and that’s fine. But when you come to Boston, you need to truly embrace and love the city. Kyrie didn’t do that. Good luck Kyrie, I hope you find everything you want and are happy wherever you decided to play next. But do us all a favor, just move on and let the Celtics be enjoyable again. By the way, here are a few classic clips for us to remember Kyrie by:
