Irving: “I’ll never question Celtics team-mates publicly again”

Kyrie Irving said he will never question his team-mates in public again after the Boston Celtics star’s criticism on Saturday.

“I never want to come from a place where I don’t want to sound like or make it feel like, I don’t want to win a championship,” Irving said.

“Sometimes I may come off and say things, never to question my team-mates in public like that ever again; I just want to win so bad.”

“It came from a place where I asked for a trade and I’m coming here and I believe in this organisation and I want these young guys to be successful,” Irving said. “In order to that, we all got to be on the same page and have that mindset that, a championship or nothing. And sometimes that can get the best of me at times.”

The Celtics (25-18) lost 109-102 to the Brooklyn Nets (22-23) without Irving (quad) and Marcus Smart (illness).
