‘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.

  • I fuckz with scary Terry, in this day in age they always outcast the people who keep it 100...Scary Terry is a two way guard and has that dog in him,who knows how good he can be if a team gives him the keys to run the team, As a 76ers fan I’d take him on my team any day, but I think he should go to the suns or magic if Boston doesn’t give him the bag

  • 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.

  • terry rosier should have known that this was a bad idea. He is not as talented as Kyrie and he should know that. The celtics without Kyrie went to the east finals riding on no expectations. The east was much better this year i.e bucks, 76ers , raptors.

  • The Celtics didn’t succeed for the same reason the warriors will. 2 time MVP and NBA champion let’s a guy like KD come in and take the major reigns and lead the team in scoring, let’s him have his looks, highly unselfish play, and he was WILLING to sit back and let his team play. 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.

  • Understanding his impact on the team, and a player that performs for 1/3 of the game, I do not believe he is a 'top point guard' in this league. Statistically at least. If he is able to be traded or in his free agency, leave the Boston Celtics to prove his worth elsewhere... Then I may consider him a top PG. But he's got a lot of climbing to do before then. And by 'top', I'm referring to the first 15. Each to their own on their opinions, however, I just don't see it. Although, his perspective on the sacrifices made may be accurate. Still don't believe Gordon Hayward should have been returned to the line-up as directly as he was.

Let’s not forget that last year the team jayson, terry and brown were able to one has positive team unity and that carried them to finals in the east. Leave terry really leave and who cares what these people think it’s all true. How do you go from the east finals to getting booted and destroying chemistry because of one player come on

  • Hes not really blaming kyrie or Hayward personally but the effect it had on his time and play when they were added into regular rotation. I agree it probably wasnt the best idea to come on here but hes not sayin its anyone's fault if anything hes blaming Brad Stevens in my opinion. He named dropped cause let's be honest we all knew who and why but Brad Stevens is the one who orchestrated the playing time and who touches the ball
