"Adam Silver was talking the other day about how unhappy National Basketball Association players are nowadays because just the scrutiny, the exploitation of everything being judged or someone being a very high stature and people are still throwing stones at him trying to break him, and break him, and break him, and break him, and words are very powerful".

Kyrie continues to blame the media for making players unhappy. You know, everyone's not at odds with you all the time. While it is true that in some cases his frustration is understandable, Irving has definitely contributed to the constant media hounding and has consistently fed into it.

"I didn't really come into this game to (have) cameras in my face, be famous, be a celebrity, whatever embodies that", said Irving on Monday.

"Several league front office executives I spoke with wondered: Would Irving sign a two-year contract with a player option for the second season to align his free agency with Davis's?" he wrote. I wanted those things when I was younger, but now. "Setting an example for these young guys".

He has led the National League in home runs three times, including 2018, when he hit.297/.374/.561 with 38 home runs and 110 RBIs. The new deal is relatively front-loaded. "I don't think it was a coincidence", Harding said of the timing of the signing.

With as much talent as the Celtics have, it may only take two or three games to flip the switch and get everybody - the seemingly disgruntled Irving included - on the same page.

"I get exhausted of all this (criticism) stuff, just like everybody else", he told reporters. Irving says the team felt a sense of togetherness and they were having fun.

"To be honest, I'm not feeling good at all", Brown told the Boston Globe out in California, where the C's begin a four-game road trip Tuesday night with a tilt against the defending champion Golden State Warriors. And the team's success falls on the best player, and whether to call that fair or unfair, nobody should ever question what type of victor those guys are, you know, what type of victor I am or whether or not I have the team in first mentality. "It makes players very unhappy". I'm human so I just try not to let it seep into my teammates. "And words are very powerful". Some within the Celtics reportedly noticed a change in Irving's behavior in February, when he walked back a preseason commitment to re-signing with the Celtics and said he didn't "owe anyone s-".
