      why are these fools all fretting about kyrie and the rest of celtics..are you all dumb ..kyrie and rest of celtics are all playing everyone for fools ..the rest of the teams in east and west are laughing at celtics thinking the celtics are really not that good............kyrie and the young celtics are gonna come alive in playoffs and bury everything in their way .......kyrie gonna bury the warriors in game 7 of finals.............he just playin you all.........im stocking up on beer and junk food for the playoffs damn it gonna be epic to watch that game 7 with kyrie and his celtics winning the finals.........celtics needed the missing piece to a puzzle and kyrie was hiding it all along he gonna show it to everyone in the finals.........

        Celtics have proven to play a lot worse with Kyrie... within the last six games with and without Kyrie, their 6-0 without and 0-6 with Kyrie... yes he is a good player but with the Celtics team, he doesn't fit with the chemistry. Besides Kyrie, their second best player is probably Al Horford or Jason Tatum but these two players alone cannot carry their team for a deep playoff run. Their only chance is with Kyrie but in 20 games left of the season, I don't think Kyrie can be like Kyrie with this Celtics team. Other players like Brown, Rozier etc., have too much confidence and are shooting poorly from the felid. Their depth has been very disappointing throughout the season. Celtics have the worst chemistry they've had all season and playoff time is coming soon and clearly, their not beating the Raptors or the Bucks anytime soon.

                  Listen up, I don’t see the Celtics losing without Kyrie. It’s very rude to say that Kyrie is the reason that they are in 5th place overall. Kyrie is my boy, but they lost to the Pistons when Kyrie was playing. I love Kyrie, but the Celtics are overall pretty good without him too.

                    Kyrie is the best closer in the game, when he's actually on the court. Which is like 40% of the time. Sucks he's always getting injured but wouldn't sign him to a max contract given his history.

                                Boston is 7 in the eastern conference finals with a healthy team. I said it before all these east teams bolstered their rosters, Boston will come out of the east.

                                    RJ says the celtics can't win without kyrie...well i say they can't win with him. unselfish basketball got them pretty far last year, with out kyrie or gordon...add a healthy, confident gordon to the mix and the celts have shot. kyrie's selfish brand of basketball doesn't fit the already established team chemistry.

                                      Kyrie hasn't bought into Stevens offense and the young guys can feel it. He needs to lead them and be there to close games. They don't need him to go iso the whole game.

                                          ESPN, never get rid of Richard Jefferson. He knows his shit, very smart player. Anybody that think this team can win a ring without Kyrie, the bridge is waiting on you, go use it because either you just a troll looking for attention or you really are dumb as fuck.

                                              This is just like the raptors, the Raptors are like 13-3 or something without Kawhi this season. But we all know when it comes playoff time, Siakam, Lowry, and Ibaka aren’t leading a team to the ecf finals. Without Kyrie, the Celtics don’t have any chance of beating the 76ers, Raptors, or Bucks. Last point, Kawhi is the best player in the East, I can see he’s better than Giannis and he’s like 80% healthy and been dealing with a sore knee for the last week or so. If Giannis was the best player in the East, they should’ve beat the Celtics last year and he still hasn’t won a single playoff series.

So your telling me the Kyrie-less team from last year, that competed in the much weaker east can still compete WITHOUT Kyrie in this now much stronger east? Somebody give me the number to Max's dealer cause dude is is smoking some GOOD SHIT. Only person speaking facts rn is Richard Jefferson. Only thing keeping these guys to be the team to beat is the young cores' egos and Kyries' shitty communication skills. If they can find a fix for those problems, they're beating the warriors in 7.
