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).

Terry Rozier says it was 'difficult' adapting to Kyrie Irving: 'I might have to go'

When a team with as much talent as this year's Boston Celtics bows out of the playoffs in the second round, observers wonder what went wrong and — whether it's fair or not — begin assigning blame. With this year's Celtics, a lot of the blame was assigned to Kyrie Irving. In the aftermath of Boston bowing out in five games to the Milwaukee Bucks, guard Marcus Smart came to Irving's defense.

Latest on pending free agent Kyrie Irving: All-Star 'discussing' Lakers with people

Celtics star Kyrie Irving can be a free agent after the season, and the idea that he could team up with fellow free agent Kevin Durant on the Knicks this summer has picked up steam since the Kristaps Porzingis trade cleared two max slots for New York. Simmons admits he does not know if it is true, but Irving being linked to the Lakers has gained some steam in recent days.

Careful what you wish for with Kyrie Irving, Celtics fans

When Kyrie Irving trudged off the court before the final buzzer of Boston's Game 4 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks that all but sealed the Celtics' postseason demise, a chorus of fans near the tunnel vented their frustrations by suggesting Irving could just leave (even if maybe the loudest fan, and the outlier of the group, pleaded for the opposite.

Latest NBA odds to sign Kyrie Irving aren't a great look for Celtics

The Boston Celtics' season hasn't ended yet, but sportsbooks already are preparing for the fallout. Bleacher Report on Tuesday shared Caesars' odds for which team will sign Kyrie Irving when he hits free agency on July 1. The Knicks have been rumored as a potential destination for Irving for some time, as he grew up in nearby West Orange, N.J., and is close friends with Kevin Durant, who reportedly could consider New York this offseason, as well.

Giannis Lead Bucks to Game 3 Win on Road

Giannis finished with 32 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists to lead the Bucks to the Game 3 road win. After the game, Kyrie Irving complained about Giannis taking 22 free throws. Irving said that’s slowing down the game as Giannis is getting all those calls. My perspective is that the most aggressive will get all those calls and it’s always been like that. While Irving gripe about the treatment of Giannis, Irving can turn his attention to some of his teammates. Gordon Hayward will have to step ...

Celtics star Kyrie Irving: 'I'm an actual genius when it comes to this game'

The Boston Celtics won five straight games before getting blown out by the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series, and even still they have two chances at TD Garden to take a commanding lead in their quest to reach a third straight conference finals. One reason for that, a number of Celtics players told ESPN's Jackie MacMullan, is they turned off their phones. Irving passive-aggressively called out Boston's young players publicly, who in kind...

Five things the Celtics have to look forward to in Game 3

And Celtics fans, you can expect he'll make a ton more shots if he gets those same looks in Game 3.

Celtics Blow Out Bucks in Game 1 on Road

Coming into this series, the Celtics were my pick to beat the Bucks. My thinking was that the Celtics would win the series in maybe 6 games. Brad Stevens is one of the better coaches in the league and he showed it in Game 1. Boston didn’t allow Giannis to have space to create his offense like the Pistons did. Coming into the game, I thought the Celtics would put Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown on Giannis. Instead, Coach Stevens put Al Horford on Giannis and it paid off. Horford frustrated Antetok...

Former Cleveland Cavaliers star Irving is playing for the Celtics in the playoffs for the first time in this series, having been ruled out of the postseason with a knee issue in his first year in Boston in 2017-18.
