Here we go again, Kyrie Irving is leaving the Boston Celtics in limbo. While he originally said he would be resigning during a season ticket holder event this past summer, he has now backtracked multiple times.
“Ask me July 1,” said Irving when whether he’s changed his mindset.
Irving acknowledged how he sees the New York Knicks positioning themselves for the offseason. On top of that, there were reports saying that he would be interested in rejoining LeBron James as a Los Angeles Laker.
“Obviously Boston’s still at the head of that race,” said Irving.
