Kyrie Irving Comments On His Future: "I Don't Owe Anyone S***"

Report No notion Kyrie Irving will leave Celtics despite frustrations

Celtics All-Star and pending free agent Kyrie Irving got a warm welcome at Madison Square Garden on Friday night, with the crowd greeting him with a loud ovation during visiting player introductions for Boston's game against the New York Knicks.

Before Friday's game against the Boston Celtics, Irving only furthered the idea that the Knicks have a real shot to land him in the 2019 National Basketball Association offseason. "We want Kyrie!" chant echoed through the arena in the third quarter.

When asked if he still plans to re-sign with the Celtics, he replied "Ask me July 1".

"I appreciate the fans, I appreciate the support, but it's really about our team now and what we want to accomplish this season - and that's a championship, so my focus is stuck on that".

While that's all fine and well, the part that doesn't sit right with Celtics fans is that Irving publicly declared his loyalty to Boston just before the season got underway, saying that "If you guys will have me back, I plan on re-signing here". "I was just happy to get it done with".

Kyrie Irving told fans at the beginning of the 2018-19 season at the TD Garden that he plans to re-sign with the Celtics.

On Friday, he sounded a more ambiguous note when asked if his mindset had changed. His answer?: "Ask me July 1".

Damyean Dotson scored 22 points and Kevin Knox had 21 for the Knicks, who dropped their 12th straight.

It could certainly happen if this season doesn't end on an ideal note for Boston, and it's a possibility that is very much on the radar of NY fans.

By swapping out Tim Hardaway, Jr. and Courtney Lee for the expiring contracts of Wesley Matthews and DeAndre Jordan, the Knicks opened up an extra $26.4 million in cap space this summer.

The Knicks' new players weren't available, so they started Dotson and Kadeem Allen as guards. He was recovering from a serious hip injury at the time.

The NBA's Most Valuable Player had a hard night; during one stretch, he missed 10 of 11 shots and four free throws as he finished nine of 21 from the field.

"Paul George, tonight, was tremendous", Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.

It's been nearly exactly a year since Porzingis suffered a torn left ACL, and it still remains to be seen when or if he'll play this season. Marcus Morris was next in line after Irving with 18 points, Gordon Hayward had 14 points and Al Horford played terrifically in all facets of the game with 14 points, nine rebounds, four assists and a block.

"There were some real good positive things to take from the game all the way around", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said.

In the late game, Nikola Jokic had 31 points and 13 rebounds and Malik Beasley had a career-high 35 points as the Denver Nuggets beat James Harden and the Houston Rockets 136-122.
