Why Chris Mannix Isn’t Buying Talk Of LeBron James Signing With Celtics

Irving should probably be careful what he wishes for, because one question a day during the regular season would end up being a lot of questions by the end of the season. Entering the playoffs, it seemed that Boston was destined for a early exit but the Celtics would win their first round series 4-3 over the Milwaukee Bucks and 4-1 over the Philadelphia 76ers in the semifinals. "I don't think it'll necessarily have an effect. I'm doing my best to kind of deflect all that and focus on what's in front of us".

Boston, however, still finished with the second-best record in the Eastern Conference led by Kyrie Irving and Al Horford.

There is no easy decision here, as all three plan to anchor the most loaded roster Boston has had to begin a season since 2007-08 with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown flocking them.

But, he is under team control for the next two seasons before a $34.1 million player option in the summer of 2020. Some of their numbers probably didn't look as appealing to the outside-looker, but they were just - they were always locked in.

"If you're faced with losing him for nothing, they should take Gordon Hayward. You saw guys that literally are going to be stars in this league for years to come".

As for his own future in Boston?

LeBron James could become a free agent in the summer.

Irving could be the no-questions-asked leader of a championship-caliber team in a big market if he remains in Boston. While these reports are just talk at this point, while Irving was in Cleveland, he had expressed interest in going to NY to play for the Knicks on multiple occasions. The Celtics are a different story. Irving can opt out of his current deal next offseason, and from the sound of it, he hasn't given much thought to his future with the Celtics. "That's something a lot of us are excited to see from G".

Well, according to Adam Kaufman, a beat reporter for the Boston Celtics, there's a slim chance Boston would consider trading their star free agent signing from 2017, but if they did, they better be ready to face the huge backlash. From there, the Celtics will hope what they can offer squares with what Irving wants. "Just making sure I'm healthy enough for September, just trying not to push it too hard, [and] just taking my time with the rehab and feeling good".

Does he have that in Boston?
