Irving was searching for a home and it seemed like he found it in Boston.

After weeks of being "an outsider looking in", Irving said he's planning on dedicating this offseason to his craft and is taking everything one day at a time to ensure he will be ready for the start of training camp. "For me, it's my job to just stay present".

Later, Irving added, "The focus is exclusively on winning a championship next year". That's the only thing I'm really anxious about. I don't think [impending free agency will] necessarily have an effect.

He doesn't want to talk about his contract extension - which he said would not make sense "contractually" or "financially" - he doesn't want to talk about his long-term plans with the Celtics, and he doesn't want to talk about the possibility of his former teammate LeBron James coming to Boston. Some of their numbers probably didn't look as appealing to the outside-looker, but they were just - they were always locked in. And then when they were afforded the opportunity to take the reins of the team, you saw them take full advantage of it. He raved about Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, then noted how Marcus Smart gave up his body and "that's the type of attitude and effort you'd love to be part of".


"It was going to be a process coming back", he said.

That's the group Irving will lead next year, and it's the group he could lead for the foreseeable future, if he decides to remain in Boston.

Throughout the regular season, much was made about where James will go next due to a player option in his contract and speculation has only increased following the Warriors' sweep of the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals last week. However, do the Cavaliers want to be the team Irving deserts following the season? "That's something a lot of us are excited to see from G". The expectations are high because he was the third pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, he improved a lot and the Celtics' expectations are a lot higher after reaching the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals.

In that Game 7, the Celtics came up short despite an impressive defensive performance, putting together one of the worst offensive showings of the postseason. Really integrating myself with our team again and really focus on winning a championship. "I'm pretty sure management and I will have a talk, but that talk won't happen now".
