Celtics Exit Interviews: How did it all change with Kyrie Irving?

I've heard the question probably a thousand times since the Boston Celtics' season ended with a whimper earlier this month in Milwaukee. I've heard it from family, friends, mailmen, random Celtics fans at the airport, and baristas at Starbucks.

After playoff performance, some teams reportedly down on chasing Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving remains one of the absolute lynchpins of summer free agency, and his decision may have the most ripple effects. Kevin Durant may leave Golden State for New York, maybe Kawhi Leonard bolts the Raptors for the Clippers, but the choices there tend to be more binary. One or the other. Irving, whatever he decides, will impact the fates of a lot of teams, including the looming Anthony Davis trade (which, despite David Griffin's protestations, is still going to happen).

What do Celtics do if Kyrie Irving walks?

Much of the chatter since lottery night has focused on whether the Boston Celtics should be willing to go all-in with their pursuit of Anthony Davis. Boston still owns maybe the most intriguing blend of young talent and draft picks to offer New Orleans, should the Pelicans be unable to convince Davis to stick around to play alongside Zion Williamson. Boston's willingness to push all its chips in, however, could hinge heavily on one factor: Will Kyrie Irving re-sign with Boston this summer?

How potential Knicks' package for Anthony Davis could compare to what Celtics, Lakers offer

Only Pelicans executive VP of Basketball Operations David Griffin - and maybe a select few others close to him - knows exactly what New Orleans wants in a potential Anthony Davis trade.
