Anonymous Celtics Player Has Telling Quote About Kyrie Irving

BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS- MAY 03 Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens reacts during the second half of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at TD Garden

Bench play was critical in the team's four straight victories against Boston after the Celtics handily won Game 1.

As for what other Celtics players are saying about Kyrie Irving and his poor performance during the Celtics/Milwaukee series, it seems that they're not exclusively blaming him for the loss.

A team that spent a significant portion of the season acting like they could win games by stepping onto the court and dazzling opponents with their names and jerseys blew away the Bucks in the first game of the series and then, apparently, figured that their work was done.

With its Game 5 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night, the Boston Celtics made some history that no team wants to make.

Kyrie Irving hasn't played a game with the Cleveland Cavaliers in two seasons, but now, at least one source close to the team is ready to air the organization's dirty laundry. Yet, he couldn't lead the Celtics deep into the postseason.

Irving's performance in the five-game series against the Milwaukee Bucks was a study in contrasts.

Pochettino's dream turns sour as Spurs misfire against Ajax
Spurs were forced to ride their luck - Ajax hit the woodwork while Hugo Lloris made an excellent stop to deny a Van de Beek brace. Harry Kane (injured) and Son Heung-min (suspended) were both missing for Spurs and their absence was felt going forward.

Nearing a deal to bring in Tyronn Lue - who won an National Basketball Association title with James in Cleveland in 2016 - as their next coach, the Lakers watched their former guard take his name out of consideration due to reported micromanaging from the front office.

"I understand that we didn't meet the outside expectations, and we really rode a roller coaster a lot of the year, and it was hard", Stevens said. "Some of that is just on us. I don't think anybody was prepared for what this season brought". If he decides to go, I wish nothing but the best for Kyrie.

"As a team I don't know where Milwaukee goes from here..."

And yeah, the talking heads can hang all of the blame on Kyrie, and Stevens can blame himself, but this team, from August onward, has had a serious attitude problem.

We could know as soon as tonight who the Bucks next opponent will be. The Celtics just have the mindset: we're the Celtics and you're not. "I've been around more selfish guys, but when you add up those three - moody, immature and tough to coach - he doesn't have a leg to stand on". The question is whether that team will be able to work within that atmosphere.
