There has been speculation that Kyrie Irving might leave the Boston Celtics as a free agent next summer. In an interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols, the All-Star point guard suggested that would be an unwise decision:
You know all the talk about Kyrie Irving as one of the elite free agents available next summer? Not so fast. Here’s what he told me: “Even if I ever try to think about that thought of going elsewhere, it would be like ‘what are you thinking? We’re pretty f-ing good here.” pic.twitter.com/QEM4XMDvWM

The future is very, very bright in Boston. Even if I ever try to think about that thought of going elsewhere, it would be like, ‘what are you thinking?’ We’re pretty f-ing good here. We’re pretty f-ing good for not just this year, for years to come. So I’m looking forward to that.
At media day on Monday, Irving said that he sometimes thinks about what it would be like to have his jersey retired in Boston.
