BOSTON, MA — Kyrie Irving is ready to lay the 2018-19 regular season to rest and focus on the playoffs. He shared his excitement for the postseason after Wednesday’s practice at The Auerbach Center.
KYRIE ON HOW HE HANDLES THINGS THIS SEASON
A lot of bullshit, a lot of just the up-and-downs that just could have been handled better from a professional standpoint, and I’m talking about me personally, I’m not talking about our team,” Irving said.
“I had a lot of questions, a lot of things that weren’t being answered straight up about what it takes to be a great professional in this league and I think that the frame of that is just outdated, in terms of what you have to be every single day and it’s not that hard.
“The media — all the stuff that comes with it. I think that it’s an exciting part of that, that you have to be aware of that but the real part is just, you know, literally what I used to wake up every single morning to do — that’s to put a ball in the hoop and be really great at it.”
