‘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.

    OMG someone is speaking the truth 😱 the end is near 🤦 it's super simple, Celtics team's been a force as a whole team together, new teammates are supposed to adjust to that and bring their extra to the table period. not the other way around. Otherwise, we're just drying out a well oiled machine. 💯

    The Lord Jesus Christ is arriving soon. Jesus loves you, friends. My prayer is that this comment reaches one person that needs to read this. The Lord is for us, not against us. He is not angry at you, He truly loves you. He took our punishment upon Himself on the cross, He died so that we may live! 3 days later He arose again, assuring us of our redemption. Hallelujah! He promises He will never drive anyone away when they come to Him, so don’t let anyone or anything stop you from coming to Jesus today! All you need is faith as a mustard seed and sincere words from your heart. He will forgive you, make you new, deliver you from your sins and from the judgement headed to this earth. For all those that call upon the Name of The Lord shall be saved! (Romans 10:13)

    Everybody talking this, he bashing the team shit. Fuck the team, they will trade him in a heart beat for something better without hesitation. Look at what they did to Isaiah, he put it all on the court the year they battled LBJ in the playoffs and what did they do, trade him for Irving, and where did Boston go again? Are they in the finals? So Rozier, talk your shit. Fuck all that team bullshit. Boston wanted to make the great white hope at the expense of good talent on the team. Not to make this this thing racial, but this is Boston we talking about, the most racially divided city in America. Their experiment to graph the next Bird failed. Oh yeah, there could never be another Larry Bird. Play to what you have already, the fans still love the franchise. So yeah, keep talking bro, keep talking.

The Celtics had egos, and your fucking one of them dude. The shit your talking is what these analyst have been roasting the Celtics for. Your not willing to take a seat for the betterment of a TEAM. Your worried about your “talent” your a role player. This is why this team is failing. They have poisons like this in the locker room. You said it yourself, there’s all these guys trying to do this and that so your really worrying about yourselves instead of the Celtics? That’s an L for y’all right there.

    People say this isn't a "good look for his career".. Why? Because he called out the fact that he was treated differently then another player, or he made more of a sacrifice then any other player. Maybe its because he had the balls to say what no one else had the balls to say. Either way, y'all need to quit being soft. When kyrie called out his team it was "Oh yeah he's wrong for doing that, but he has a point" Here its "this isn't a good look on his career" Fuck off you pussies, realize that teamwork is better than one broken legged man and one ball hog who needs a batman to win. *I don't dislike anyone of these guys* But im sick of reading the comments, all of you downies think that this is a bad look, really this is great. WE SHOULD BE CALLING OUT TEAMMATES, THIS IS A SPORT THAT THEY'RE TRYING TO WIN IN AFTER ALL, IF YOU WANNA WIN YOU TELL THEM STRAIGHT UP.
