Kyrie Irving says Boston has championship pedigree now

Speaking to reporters in Waltham on Tuesday, Irving shook his head and answered quickly when asked if his recent knee surgery had changed his thinking about signing an extension a year before he could opt out of his deal and enter unrestricted free agency in 2019.

Boston acquired Irving in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a pair of draft picks.

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

It's the kind of thing that makes you raise your eyebrows if you're a Celtics fan or a person who wants Irving suiting up for their team some day. "You know, just going into this year with the mindset of trying to win a championship".

Irving said his backup, Terry Rozier, proved he's an National Basketball Association starter but that "turns into an unbelievable dynamic" for Boston next season.

This is something that Irving expressed concerning his team stating that the Celtics have the "championship pedigree" with the group of players that they have assembled, according to Jay King of The Athletic. One, because he could very well be a one-year rental, and two, because the Nuggets don't have the assets that other teams do, but on the off-chance that the Celtics and Nuggets make a deal for Irving, here are three possibilities for what that trade could look like.

"For me, I'm just glad everyone got to learn how special they were on a bigger stage". But the thing is Irving is 100 percent right: There is, financially, no good reason for him to sit down with the Celtics' front office now when he could be in line for a major payday next summer. I'd been talking about how great they were. You saw guys that literally are going to be stars in this league for years to come.

When he referenced Hayward, Irving smiled wide and added, "and now getting my man Gordon back - I'm excited man".

A lot of the news coming out of Boston hasn't been the best.
