BOSTON — Remember when Kyrie Irving said too much after games?
Well, those days apparently are over — for now, at least.
After last week’s loss to the Toronto Raptors, the Boston Celtics guard was noticeably brief (and maybe a tad grumpy) with his answers. Again, given Irving’s track record of talking a ton, it was easy to write off his postgame silence as a one-off.
But after Sunday’s largely embarrassing loss to the Houston Rockets, Irving once again short with his answers.
Take a look:
If you were being optimistic, you’d probably say this is Irving simply refusing to give the media additional headline material. If you were being pessimistic, you’d probably say the All-Star guard is fed up with the current season, and perhaps is counting down the days until free agency.
And, well, if you were being realistic, you’d probably say it’s a bit of both.
