‘I sacrificed my talent’ playing with Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward - Terry Rozier | First Take

Terry Rozier says he was playing in the shadows of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward all season for the Boston Celtics and felt "thrown all the way in the back seat" when Kyrie announced that he would stay with the Celtics if welcomed back.

    So happy the Celtics are suffering and are in some turmoil. Kyrie leaving, Hayward overpaid, Rozier unhappy and throwing people under the Buss. Coach isn't that great, Paul Pierce talking crap with his One Chip Good Times..

    Maybe Rozier should go get some more tattoos on the back of his head. Maybe that will vibrate some of the THC off his receptors so he realizes that he is not an all-star, all-nba type of talent. Lul.

    What is everyone talking about, he speaking facts. This team was supposed to be good last year until the big two got hurt. However, the young kids played well, in fact really good, earning a spot in the east finals. They balled out and was expected or expecting to get better this year. The two superstars now healthy, changed the roles and limited growth. Kyrie dribbles until he cant dribble and heyward was a shell of his former self, yet management put the ball in their hiands, as TR and others took smaller roles and watched. have to understand these guys working on that first contract, after a good playoff they needed that juice to propel them forward, setting them up for a great second deal. Now after a year on the sidelines, its like starting over.

    I don’t get why the Celtics were fine last year, up until my got hurt before the playoffs. Then this year it all went to shit. Kyrie played both seasons so guess what It was reallygordon hawayard starting the seasons fault. Because the Cs played fine with him last year it isn’t his fault

    This is the reason Celtics sucks lol, not because adjustment being made, because everyone from superstar to bench have such big ego because "WE FORCE LEBRON TO GAME 7 WITHOUT KYRIE AND HAYWARD"

    How do we forget that the Celtics with Kyrie came out the gates on fire last year? He was in the MVP conversation. The ball moved well and the were good defensively. The albatross in the room is Heyward.

    The Lord Jesus Christ is arriving soon. Jesus loves you, friends. My prayer is that this comment reaches one person that needs to read this. The Lord is for us, not against us. He is not angry at you, He truly loves you. He took our punishment upon Himself on the cross, He died so that we may live! 3 days later He arose again, assuring us of our redemption. Hallelujah! He promises He will never drive anyone away when they come to Him, so don’t let anyone or anything stop you from coming to Jesus today! All you need is faith as a mustard seed and sincere words from your heart. He will forgive you, make you new, deliver you from your sins and from the judgement headed to this earth. For all those that call upon the Name of The Lord shall be saved! (Romans 10:13)
