‘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.

  • Celtics known for doing shortcuts to get championships. This time it backfired a lot. They turn from title contender to a just another playoff team. No patience for celtics. They have a lot of talented young cores to build with. LMAO! who the fuck would want to play (superstars) for celtics anyway after what they did to IT?

  • I feel bad for Terry. Would you like this guy on your team now the way he talks about his teammates, coach, and organization? When I interview people if someone talks bad about their previous work place that raises a red flag because if they talk bad about them they’ll most likely talk bad about me.

    • @Jay D. I can see him coming off the bench for secondary on any team putting up points and assist with no worries, or maybe starting with a team who will give up players for cap space and start him in the line up. I'm pretty sure he'll take a pay cut to start, prove a point and show his talent.

  • This is to me, the equivalent of Eric Bledsoe saying he can't play right because of Chris Paul, if Bledsoe would have ever said that. My point is that they, Eric and Terry are good points but not kyrie and Chris elite and legendary. But good even solid starters.

  • Max is correct because the 18 Celtics made it almost to the finals with out either This year they had gorden and still didn't make meaning that Gorden made no difference BUT KYRIE wasn't there last year and this year and he was fine and playing fine and they lost big time / worse ?? Kyrie was an eating cancer ??? Max wins the argument ?? It has NOTHING to do with Gorden as Gorden didn't show up for 2 years ?? but / BUT the results were quite different ??? Gorden didnt effect either year ? The Celtics played better with out both especially KYRIE ??

  • Jaylen brown sacrificed the most - going to the bench for the benefit of the team especially when he started off slow. To JBs credit he played his way back into the starting lineup towards the end of the season. He didnt go on no talk show and bury his former teammates for his lack of productivity.

  • This guy is a super talent. He is young and will be very special indeed. He very well could have started over Kyrie just because of his ball IQ on defense and offense. He is also not selfish, super athletic, and fearless. All this supersedes ball handling skills, in which he has as well. Probably not one on one ball handling expertise, but indeed championship pedigree.. Will be ALL NBA defense 1st team some day. If Celtics don't like what he said trade him.. Buy I think Kyrie will leave first. Because Brad knows THAT this interview is what he also wanted to say personally.

  • 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.
