We wondered about Irving's impression of Boston now that he's lived and played here for a year.

Kyrie Irving is one of several National Basketball Association stars who could be a free agent next summer.

So when Irving said Tuesday, "Contractually, financially, [an extension right now] just doesn't make any sense", Danny Ainge has to both understand and be a little concerned at the same time.

When discussing his long-term future, the free-agent-to-be after next season said his top priorities will be "consistency, authenticity and honesty", but added no contract talks will take place this summer because of the negative financial impact to him of signing an extension with a year left on his deal.

However, questions regarding Irving's future are going to be a topic of discussion next season, as he will be able to leave the Celtics at the end of the 2018-19 campaign via free agency. "But obviously I can't really control that".

"I think you guys can feel my attitude is really just redemption next year". That's the only thing I'm really anxious about. Sure, he's a bit - how do I say this - unconventional, but you still don't expect players to be so opaque about the future.

Irving believes that capturing an NBA title next season is a completely attainable goal for Boston, especially after witnessing the team advance all the way to the brink of an NBA Finals appearance despite the key absences of himself and star forward Gordon Hayward. Continually doing that over the past five years that has put Boston in a position to be a legitimate championship contender for the next decade or more.

Parker said he'd take Irving and the current Celtics group, which Broussard and Jennings basically scoffed at. I think he's one of the most entertaining guys, and he's clutch. The offense runs through Kyrie Irving in Boston, but he's more than willing to dish it out to the open man.

He talked about the play of Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Marcus Smart returning from missing two months following thumb surgery, and diving on the floor for a loose ball in his first game back. "Me and my strength and conditioning coach, we're taking it one day at a time".

Which brings us back to Irving.

BOSTON Kyrie Irving is playing coy about the possibility of reuniting with his former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate LeBron James next season in Boston. You see a 43, and then you see 12, 11, 10, 10, 10, 10. If he does ultimately decide to sign with the Celtics, they would become to clear favorites to win the Eastern Conference and perhaps even the NBA Finals next season. The year before, in playing them in 2016, they couldn't necessarily get away with a game like that. Thomas is no longer in the front office so I can't see this happening.
