    Default Kyrie deserves an apology for the Celtics collapsing and about to lose 4 straight

    again

    Celtics got luck with matchups. If they played the Bucks in the 2nd round they wouldve gotten dominated again like last year

    Now theyre about to get swept.

    Brad Stevens is also a mediocre coach. Hes NOT a LEADER. Hes just Xs and Os. Babyboi cant beat a 2-3 zone. No adjustments. CONSTANT 3rd quarter bed crappings.

    Siakam forgot how to play basketball and shot 10% for the series and Raptors still almost won the series

    Kyrie was right

    How come every team just performs better when Kyrie is no longer on it? Even the Nets, whose roster Kyrie deemed to weak (such leadership), has a better win ratio when Kyrie doesn't see the court.

    2018 Celtics without Kyrie - Eastern Conference Finals, one game away from NBA Finals
    2019 Celtics with Kyrie - 2nd round exit, backdoor swept with Kyrie averaging 20.4 on 36%
    2020 Celtics without Kyrie - Eastern Conference Finals
    2020 Nets with Kyrie - 8-12
    2020 Nets without Kyrie - 27-25

    I hate Kyrie's guts, but I have to admit, that is one powerful resumé that clearly shows Kyrie makes the teams he is on better.

    The Celtics need to apologize to Kyrie for making it further in the playoffs the years he wasn't on the court? Based on available evidence Boston had a better chance to get past Milwaukee last year( or at least make it a better series) if Kyrie was elsewhere discussing flat earth theories.

    Ironically the only time during the last 4 years the Celtics didn't make the ECF was when Kyrie was playing for them

    And when did they face a #1 seed with the MVP in the 2nd round, other than 2019?

    To put it bluntly, Kyrie doesn't deserve shit from the Celtics

    He was absolutely horrible in the 2019 playoffs, especially in the 2nd round where he shot an abysmal 35% and practically looked like he had given up. Also, lets not forget just how toxic he was, and how much of a distraction he became throughout the season. It all started with him wanting to be "the man" and then the flat Earth bullshit, and early last season he said he'd resign with the Celtics only to leave during the offseason.

    Celtics are much, much better off without Kyrie and it shows.

    You mean the same number one seed and (likely) MVP that got blown out of the playoffs this year? Let's not act like the Bucks have been some indomitable playoff force the last couple of years. There's literally no evidence in the last 3 years that the Celtics oncourt chances improve with Kyrie.

    What's the Nets record with him this year? 8-12. Record without? 27-25. When you find any evidence that his teams are better with him on the floor, I'm all ears.

    Lol yep. Boston gets further in the playoffs without him, and his current team has a better record when he's not playing. I mean

    And it's about match-ups. Celtics had no one/a good game plan to stop Giannis, which is the main reason they lost last year. Look at Boston's quality of opponents in the 2nd rounds, which one of them is the best team they've faced? It's easily the 2019 Bucks. They beat the lowly Wizards in 2017, the Sixers with rookie Simmons & Embiid in 2018 & barely beat a Raptors team that overachieved in the RS with Lowry as their best player this year. But but the Heat beat the Bucks! Guess what the Heat are about to do to the Celtics this year?

    No apologies needed as he was a big part of the problem. Obviously, some of that problem remains and I think it is largely the coach or management. If tatum makes boneheaded plays and often loses the ball, I put that on the coaching staff. You have to know how to integrate and make your players play better individually and as a team.
