Danny Ainge Reveals Why Kyrie Irving Wasn’t At Game 7

Danny Ainge Reveals Why Kyrie Irving Wasn’t At Game 7”

But his absence on the Boston bench was noted when the Celtics played his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Other than smoothly integrating Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward back into the lineup without any drama amongst the other guards and forwards, the front office must also figure out what to do with Marcus Smart.

"I don't like to make excuses", said Smart, who underwent surgery in March for a torn ligament in his right thumb and returned after just six weeks, "but my thumb is killing me".

Ainge's tone was clearly playful, but Irving is probably about ready to stop going under the knife. "I been here for four years; my heart's here". Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Terry Rozier have shown the Celtics' ability to compete even after losing both Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward to injury.

Celtics president Danny Ainge told reporters Irving didn't want to be seen after the surgery. "As far as the starting thing, I'm not really anxious about that".

"But gradually I found my way and became a big help for this team", said Morris, who averaged 13.6 points and 5.4 rebounds in 26.8 minuted during the regular season.

"The farther you go in the playoffs, the more hard it is to lose", Ainge said. I had a lot of fun leading these guys this year when I had to step up starting.

"I get a kick out of the fact that everywhere I go, people don't think we need Kyrie or need Gordon Hayward", Ainge said of one of the sillier arguments to sprout once players like Rozier, Tatum and Brown started to shine. "I think they're going to come back in great condition and great shape next year". I hope they are able to take away the intensity and the commitment to defending and doing those little things in order for us to be able to be successful. "We think that he'll be playing basketball in the next couple months". I also remember how great they are and how young they are still.

After falling just one win short of sending LeBron James home from the playoffs (and possibly ending his second stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers), Ainge faces an offseason with plenty of franchise-altering decisions. City of the champions they call us, but Failure is the Key to success.
