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.

Why is it so hard for some people to leave a bad situation with some maturity? This is not a good look.

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.

Gordon Hayward has nothing to do with it Kyrie the point guard that took your spot

Listen i knew these 2 were gonna clash 2 years ago, but i personally thinks rozier should def keep some humility cause as good as he may be hes not a championship caliber pg unless hes on a team thats built exactly like boston.

I give Terry a pass on these comments, this was at the end of a long, frustrating season. The truth is he had more time, and success, as a real team guy before the "stars" returned. I am a Boston fan, and I still appreciate Scary Terry.

dude was not complaining, he was telling them why things didnt work out the way it was supposed to which everyone already knew that kyrie stunk up the joint. he was telling first take the thing that even ray charles who is dead knew. so what part of the truth is the complaining. complaining is when you dont want to deal with stuff that affects you negatively
Down Hill
Terry Rozier turning heel. I like.
P Rise
This asshat can't speak a cogent sentence, however, because he can play basketball he makes millions; Unreal in its idiocy.
Miles Williams
