Kyrie Irving Vows 'Never to Question' Celtics Teammates Publicly Again

NBA rumors R.J. Hunter returns to Celtics on two-way contract

NBA rumors R.J. Hunter returns to Celtics on two-way contract

"When you're as competitive as we both are, tempers can get hot", Morris told reporters during shootaround in Orlando Saturday. "It's just going out and proving it every single night and demanding it and actually showing it".

"When you win, you want to taste it again".

"Obviously New York held a special place for me, being from Jersey and obviously envisioning myself as a free agent and ultimately taking a meeting, playing for Fiz and the great young core they have, thinking about playing here". We just have to continue to empower each other and have each other's back.

This is still just the midpoint of the season, the Celtics are the five seed - disappointing compared to expectations - but with 40 games to get everyone in the locker room pulling the rope the same direction.

Uncle Drew emphasised on the fact that performing in clutch situations defines you as players and as a team, and the Celtics had failed to achieve that this season. After a loss to Portland in 2014, James bemoaned "bad habits" that had developed with Cleveland's star players, like Irving and Dion Waiters, when they were a bad team.

There's a belief that Irving is frustrated with Jayson Tatum, whose play has been inconsistent this year. Eventually, they'll start to do more harm than good. In order to do that, we all have to be on the same page and have that mindset of championship or nothing.

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said he's "not worried" about the scuffle between Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris during Thursday night's game against the Miami Heat.

"Like, I came from a place where I asked for a trade and I come in here and I believe in this organization, and I want these young guys to be successful", he said.

Interesting comment from Brown, considering Irving admitted that pointing fingers after Saturday's loss was something that came out of frustration while he's still trying to figure out how to be the best leader he can be.
