But it's fair to put him down for a couple of deflections, and certainly his comments scored a few points with Celtic followers.

Kyrie Irving faced the media on Tuesday afternoon, answering questions on a number of topics, including his future with the Boston Celtics. "They passed a lot of expectations, and I couldn't be more proud of them".

Irving made it clear, however, that management will not decide in a vacuum.

Irving said he hasn't started running yet, but he's working his way up.

"I'm truly grateful to be able to speak with management as well as our coaching staff", he said. "We pretty much have open dialogue with the direction we're going in and we all feel confident that we all have something to offer here. We'll see what happens". "Obviously, the speculation ... it's inevitable".

Irving also had a separate surgery in May to fix a deviated septum, a procedure that kept him away from the sidelines for Game 7 of the Celtics' Eastern Conference Finals series against James and the Cavaliers.

Durant will be a free agent himself this summer, but, will likely re-sign with the Bay Area side after restructuring his current deal. And his injury history won't affect that concept.

Kyrie Irving's future with the Boston Celtics isn't exactly cut-and-dry.

Irving didn't try to deflect when asked about James and the possibility that the Celtics could be a wild-card suitor if James opts out of the final year of his deal. I don't think [impending free agency will] necessarily have an effect.

Since Horford's contract is too hefty for a player you can't build around if you wish to get past the second round of the playoffs, Hayward would probably be the sought after commodity for Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman.

"My hope is that maybe we could limit it to maybe one question a day about what I'm doing next year", Irving half-joked to reporters. "So I'm excited to just really utilize this offseason to dedicate myself to my craft and things outside of it". "I think that's the exciting part about all this is that when you're shaping up to gear up to be a championship-caliber team for years to come - which I think Danny [Ainge] has echoed for a little bit". It's hard to even really fathom what you would even do with an extra $80 million, but even that being the case, you shouldn't pass that kind of money up.

Irving was searching for a home and it seemed like he found it in Boston.

"We're all competitors", he said.

"It was going to be a process coming back", he said. "For me, it's my job to just stay present".

Celtics fans have seen the best and worst moments of James' career up close in personal.

"For sure", he said.

"For me, I'm just glad everyone got to learn how special they were on a bigger stage".
