Terry Rozier says he was playing in the shadows of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward all season for the Boston Celtics and felt "thrown all the way in the back seat" when Kyrie announced that he would stay with the Celtics if welcomed back.

    The Celtics fo to the East Conf with their young talent because their BIG MONEY PLAYERS ARE HURT. The BIG MONEY PLAYERS comeback the next season healthy (ex. Hayward not the same after Utah) do not make it to the East conf finals. Wtf is wrong

    Terry has it in his gead.hes a great starting point guard.
    It's good to have confidence. But Terry is a streak shooter. Hes selfish. You will see this in Charlotte. Hes goin to put up points..but at what cost.
    To come on national t.v.
    N run your inexcusable. He thinks hes an elite point guard..n hes idnt. Good luck in Charlotte rozier. Lol you got your wish.

    As a die hard Celtics fan Terry sabotaged his own career by what happened last season, Kyrie is not innocent neither is Coach Brad but Terry acted like he was supposed to start over Kyrie knowing he was a back up yet him making a name for himself being labeled "Scary Terry" he thrived off that publicity the media gave him he believed he was better than Kyrie yet I remember Game 7 in Boston where he couldnt buy a shot to save his life he went 0-11 from 3 but Kyrie takes too many shots though, he took bad shots, and made bad decisions all last year he only came to play when Kyrie sat out of games like he was to good to play well when Kyrie played as for Gordon Hayward Coach did rush him back to early and threw him in the starting line up wayy too soon which messed up JT and JB to some degree, but for him to say he sacrificed the most is BS I watched damn near every game last season playoffs included he was not having fun, he was not playing team ball ppl defend him cause of his quick playoff run yet that was team success not just a Terry thing everybody stepped up, plus the Celtics were playing with house money once Kyrie and Gordon were out nobody gave us a chance in hell to make it anywhere I take nothing away from Terry he did play very well in those playoffs in 2018 but he should have had that same hunger this past season even as a role player to step up his mindset was on starting and tryna replace Kyrie not doing what's best for the team again Kyrie as a leader this year SUCKED ASS he didnt have a perfect season neither but Terry should've played harder than he did last year that's what the great teams do and role players do if everyone would've bought in to the team last year the Celtics could've won the East and the Title especially if played a Klay and KD less Warriors like Toronto did Boston would've won that chip smh but thankfully we have a better team this season with no egos just team guys but Terry Rozier wasnt all bought in last year he acting as if he was balling and everyone else was slacking smh nah bruh you was at fought to!!

    There was no anonymous Celtic. The coach had one of the most talented teams in the league and not enough playing time for all of them and when many of them did get playing time they had to adjust to each other. Most of the time it leads to disgruntled players and the only resolution is to trade a couple of players and establish a starting lineup and a rotation.

    He spoke for the team in reality, and this is mostly targeted at the guys chirping in their ears every play. It's likely Kyrie and Smart, since they are very vocal in their displeasure. Kyrie - clearly - gave Brad Stevens a lot of shit, trying to be his own LeCoach/LeGM. Smart is just the type to hold others accountable.

    We can deal with Smart because he's a baller, however we'll be better without Kyrie's pure antics. He's undoubtedly the most skilled player we've had in some time, but that attitude was ridiculous.

    You're a "Top PG in the League" but yet Kyrie leaves they dont give you the big money to play PG, They give $141mil to Kemba Walker to play PG..🤔 For The Celtics. Seems like if you're a Top PG there would be no need to bring in Kemba Walker.
