Kyrie Irving says signing contract extension with Boston Celtics doesn't make sense

Boston Celtics: Where the franchise stands heading into the 2018 offseason

"I'd been talking about how great they were, some of their numbers particularly probably didn't look as appealing to the outside looker, but they were always locked in".

Irving, who missed the end of the regular season and the entirety of the Celtics' playoff run due to injury, said he's "feeling good".

That came shortly after Celtics play-by-play man Mike Gorman said he wasn't sure if Irving would be a member of the Celtics in the coming seasons.

Jaylen Brown's rookie season didn't go as many had hoped for with the Boston Celtics. And then when they were afforded the opportunity to take the reins of the team, you saw them take full advantage of it.

"If Irving is available in a trade this summer, the Knicks should absolutely engage the Celtics - albeit warily because GM Danny Ainge has been known to prevail in negotiations".

Irving did note that he hasn't had any conversations with Boston's front office about James and said he appreciates the transparency of team brass as they map out their future vision. Irving can opt out of his current deal next offseason, and from the sound of it, he hasn't given much thought to his future with the Celtics. "They gained a lot of experience, and now it can only help us going forward". However, do the Cavaliers want to be the team Irving deserts following the season?

Green Teamers were some of the first to chide James when he evacuated Dan Gilbert's dumpster fire for Miami that summer, only to see James put the nail in the Big Three's coffin with a gentleman's sweep of the Celtics in 2011 and a 45-point coming-out party in the Garden in a career-defining Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals a year later.

Smart's future with the Celtics is uncertain, as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent, but Irving isn't focused on the rumor mill of who's staying and who's going. Watching the Celtics clank three after three, it was hard not to envision what might happen with a superstar who could create his own shot in the lineup. I think, yeah, that's human nature to think about that kind of thing. Really integrating myself with our team again and really focus on winning a championship. "Yeah, I just have to take it as being present with the Boston Celtics", said Irving. Until I get to that point, then I can't really answer any questions.

"Management and I will have a talk, but that talk won't happen now", he said.
