Kyrie Irving Shades Teammates For Lacking "Championship Pedigree"


Kyrie Irving is not too happy with the "compete degree" of his youthful Celtics' teammates n their loss to the Orlando Magic final evening. The 105-103 they suffered as a crew, speaks volumes to their coalescent points this season. A scarcity of unity attributable to a management battle from inside is translating in poor outcomes on the sphere of play. Kyrie Irving, who's been inconsistent for a lot of 2018-2019, feels entitled to a distinguished management function on this younger roster, after coming away with an NBA championship earlier
