Boston Celtics: Kyrie Irving would be stupid to leave Boston

Boston Celtics: Kyrie Irving would be stupid to leave Boston

The Celtics are concerned about Kyrie Irving's long-term future in Boston, in part because of his desire to flee for a division rival, according to one National Basketball Association insider.

The Boston Celtics success in the playoffs this year has fans asking some questions.

On Friday afternoon, Scary Terry went on Twitter to take a shot at his doubters and said that they needed to pay double. At one point, it appeared as if the 26-year-old had changed his tune on the weird debate, but a new story from The New York Times' Sopan Deb suggests otherwise.

If he decides, instead, to opt into his player option, Irving will make just over $21 million in 2019-20. In one season Irving has already improved his defensive skill, and has grown to become a better team player. Salary-cap relief could finally come in 2020, but that would essentially be the start of the rebuild - the point at which the Cavs could rid themselves of some of those deals and build around players they've drafted while making free-agent signings.

Which ended up being a good decision, because he scored 46 points and later advanced to his eighth straight NBA Finals. Cavs guard JR Smith ran down the clock with seconds to go, under the apparent belief that Cleveland were ahead.

It's looking more likely every day that LeBron is going to be in search of greener pastures this summer, and apparently it's so certain that the only way LeBron will even entertain the idea of resigning in Cleveland is if his immediately family beg him to stay.

"We haven't had many playmakers through the course of the season", James said, per CBSsports.com. Here are three reasons why Chris Paul and LeBron James teaming up in LA is a bad idea. According to Yahoo Sports' Chris Mannix, the organization is anxious that the star point guard will walk away that summer.

"I just think, in the end, what's important to him".

"I think they're scared", Mannix said.

This means the more time they spend above land, the more devastation they can wreak with rainfall and storm-induced damages. Rainfall, on average , increased 24 percent. "That has serious implications for inland flooding and urban infrastructure".

"This is so challenging for me to sit up here and say because people who really don't know the game don't really know what I'm talking about". Because Kyrie had talked about it-about playing with the Knicks with some players in that Cleveland locker room-from what I was told.

Why would Kyrie leave Boston?

"We don't win 70 - or whatever we won, 67 games last year - and go through the journey we did this year without everybody feeling a sense of pressure and sense of urgency every night that you step foot on the floor".

If Kyrie Irving wants to win a championship, his best chance is in Boston.
