Irving’s attitude also appeared to affect the rest of the team. in Game 4 he walked off of the court while the game was still going on. When asked what his thoughts were he said that the game was over.
Overall Irving just had a poor attitude. He said that we shouldn’t care about the team’s struggles in the regular season because he wouldn’t allow the C’s to perform badly in the playoffs and when things started to go bad in the playoffs he simply said, “who cares.”
That is not the attitude of a leader. That is the attitude of a self-obsessed diva. Maybe Kyrie has more in common with LeBron James than he would care to admit.
So with an opt-out looming Kyrie Irving and the Celtics have a decision. Do they try and work things out or do they just give up?
It may seem crazy right now, but here are 3 reasons the Celtics need to re-sign Kyrie Irving.
