Lightbulb Thoughts on why Kyrie shot so poorly in the playoffs?

Low iq, trained with Kobe, realized the ball wasn’t flat (like the earth)

Intentionally shot badly to facilitate his exit.

The title should be, "why did the rest of the celtics go to complete dog shit regardless of kyrie?"

but if you want an honest answer, he looks much much smaller now. I know he jumped on the vegan diet, but it could be that he let up in the weight room as well.

regardless, he used to bully every single guard he played against. Now he's the one getting bullied

back yard basketball versus street ball, he'll master the trick shots somehow

1st option PGs always get figured out in the playoffs.

The same reason why other players have had playoff series were they did not shoot well. Players go in slumps. He really did not shoot well for the last couple months of the season. I feel like it was due to the media pushed narrative of the Celtics being better without him and the Celtics fans turning on him. It was a toxic time/environment for him.

Yes. I'd rather he joins the nets after reading about James Dolan

Yeah, no. He was forcing up stupid moronic shots all series long vs the Bucks. It had nothing to do with being in a "slump".

You fickin idiot didnt even watch the series. He missed so many open shots. So many of his shots werent even close. For an elite shooter it was inexplicable. He went cold in the worst possible moment or it was sabotage. Or his shot is broken which is yet to be seen next season.
