    Default Re: Was race a factor in Kyrie getting blamed for Boston, when it was Hayward's fault

    Bottom line: Irving had no chance against mvp Giannis and that #1 defense

    If you put Irving on the 2018 Celtics they make the finals.

    Kyrie's arrogance was to blame. Hayward's injury was his reason. He was never the same after it.

    Race? No. Kyrie is the better, more exciting more marketable player; thus a sexier headline.

    3rd in the LEAGUE smartass

    So they were expected to make ECF with Kyrie, and therefore their ECF appearance without him doesn't mean they were better without him - the media just lies because it makes them money and gives them show topics to pile on another black guy

    They played better without Irving, so no they don't.

    They were better if you compare the postseason without Irving to the one with him but to be fair their winning percentage is exactly with him as without him.

    Which still doesn't say m7ch Go9d about him as a Celtic
