Irving: I just want to play basketball at a very high level

Kyrie Irving

The Boston Celtics lost their fifth game in six played since the All-Star break on Sunday in a 115-104 loss to the Rockets at home.

Should Irving re-sign with the Celtics, then Boston's younger assets, including Brown and Jayson Tatum, could be packaged in a trade for the New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis.

The Celtics are playing some uninspired basketball at the moment.

"I didn't really come into this game to [have] cameras in my face, be famous, be a celebrity, whatever embodies that". And I just try to not let it seep into my teammates, and that's the most important thing is setting an example for these young guys. Throw in the fact that grew up and played his high school basketball in nearby New Jersey, as well as Durant's reported interest in the NY franchise, they seem like a fit for each other. The team needs to improve soon or this season will be a massive disappointment.

So if the Celtics kept this current group together and Irving walked in the offseason, ESPN's Max Kellerman still believes the green could win a championship.

Celtics forward Jaylen Brown is concerned with Boston's recent slide, saying the team's atmosphere is "toxic", according to The Boston Globe's Gary Washburn.

McSally: 'I felt the system was raping me all over again'
McSally said that in one case she was preyed upon and raped by a superior office and that the system in place "raped" her as well. She retired from the Air Force as a full colonel. "But unlike so many courageous survivors, I didn't report the sexual assault".

That clearly won't go over well in the locker room, along with what Kyrie Irving and Marcus Morris have said in the past.

"These days, Irving plays lackadaisical defense, and unfocused offense".

"Sources around the team told me that Irving's persona has changed, too: He's become disengaged and detached from those around the team", O'Connor writes.

Irving has been in the spotlight from the start. "Irving has grown increasingly frustrated with the intense media coverage of his future decision, and the state of the team". The C's are 9-2 this season with Irving sidelined, which was the star point guard's status throughout Boston's postseason run to Game 7 of the 2018 Eastern Conference finals.

"Nobody wants it to be exclusively about them, but (star players) take most of the responsibility, and so does the head coach". It's what's going to drive this team?
