‘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.

    A lot of people in this comment section are not mentioning that Rozier actually played extremely well last year while Kyrie was injured during playoffs. In fact, they played way way better last year as a team with him bringing the ball down the court. It seemed like they had more facilitation and fluidity as a team overall. Kinda sad to these these casual fans in the comments talking shit when he's just really being honest. I think if they took Kyrie and Hayward out and went with the line-up from last year, they would have had a better shot at winning vs the Bucks.

    I give Terry a pass on these comments, this was at the end of a long, frustrating season. The truth is he had more time, and success, as a real team guy before the "stars" returned. I am a Boston fan, and I still appreciate Scary Terry.

    dude was not complaining, he was telling them why things didnt work out the way it was supposed to which everyone already knew that kyrie stunk up the joint. he was telling first take the thing that even ray charles who is dead knew. so what part of the truth is the complaining. complaining is when you dont want to deal with stuff that affects you negatively

    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.

    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.

      You obviously know nothing about the game of basketball. Being a knicks fan too disappoints me. Team players will out ball any amount of superstars on a team. Team work and chemistry is far more important than having stars on the team. He’s a team player, no where near selfish.
