          So funny. bc now he on the Hornets, where there wont be any talent around him, and now Kemba is on a team with talent. I predict the Hornets win less than 25 games next season.

            The Celtics fo to the East Conf with their young talent because their BIG MONEY PLAYERS ARE HURT. The BIG MONEY PLAYERS comeback the next season healthy (ex. Hayward not the same after Utah) do not make it to the East conf finals. Wtf is wrong

              You didn't sacrifice shit, you couldn't hit a fuqin shot when the playoffs came, you, Gordon, Tatum, none of u showed up in the playoffs and you want to blame Kyrie for your poor play. GTFOH

                            Terry has it in his gead.hes a great starting point guard.
                            It's good to have confidence. But Terry is a streak shooter. Hes selfish. You will see this in Charlotte. Hes goin to put up points..but at what cost.
                            To come on national t.v.
                            N run your mouth..is inexcusable. He thinks hes an elite point guard..n hes idnt. Good luck in Charlotte rozier. Lol you got your wish.

                              Terry cmon, did you not think this thru? They press him for answers and he's all "um", "uh". He gave no real insight. Waste of time. Just talking about feelings

                                    Gordon took jazz to Western conference finals, Irving was an over achiever that was given a platform because of labron. Boston will be better without Irving.

                                                As a die hard Celtics fan Terry sabotaged his own career by what happened last season, Kyrie is not innocent neither is Coach Brad but Terry acted like he was supposed to start over Kyrie knowing he was a back up yet him making a name for himself being labeled "Scary Terry" he thrived off that publicity the media gave him he believed he was better than Kyrie yet I remember Game 7 in Boston where he couldnt buy a shot to save his life he went 0-11 from 3 but Kyrie takes too many shots though, he took bad shots, and made bad decisions all last year he only came to play when Kyrie sat out of games like he was to good to play well when Kyrie played as for Gordon Hayward Coach did rush him back to early and threw him in the starting line up wayy too soon which messed up JT and JB to some degree, but for him to say he sacrificed the most is BS I watched damn near every game last season playoffs included he was not having fun, he was not playing team ball ppl defend him cause of his quick playoff run yet that was team success not just a Terry thing everybody stepped up, plus the Celtics were playing with house money once Kyrie and Gordon were out nobody gave us a chance in hell to make it anywhere I take nothing away from Terry he did play very well in those playoffs in 2018 but he should have had that same hunger this past season even as a role player to step up his mindset was on starting and tryna replace Kyrie not doing what's best for the team again Kyrie as a leader this year SUCKED ASS he didnt have a perfect season neither but Terry should've played harder than he did last year that's what the great teams do and role players do if everyone would've bought in to the team last year the Celtics could've won the East and the Title especially if played a Klay and KD less Warriors like Toronto did Boston would've won that chip smh but thankfully we have a better team this season with no egos just team guys but Terry Rozier wasnt all bought in last year he acting as if he was balling and everyone else was slacking smh nah bruh you was at fought to!!

The coach had one of the most talented teams in the league and not enough playing time for all of them and when many of them did get playing time they had to adjust to each other. Most of the time it leads to disgruntled players and the only resolution is to trade a couple of players and establish a starting lineup and a rotation.
