Due to that and rumblings that Irving wants to team up with Jimmy Butler, the New York Knicks already lead the race as Kyrie’s potential team of choice, according to ESPN’s Summer Forecast. ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz maintains that the Celtics and Irving have a mutual understanding of where their relationship is. “My best intel is that the Celtics and Kyrie have a pretty good mutual understanding that he wasn’t going to get traded in the offseason and that there are long-term aspirations for both parties,” said Arnovitz. “Anything can happen over the course of an eight-month season, but I kind of like him staying.”
Storyline: Kyrie Irving Free Agency
A year out from what could be an enormous 2019 free agency in the NBA, there are rumors about the next potential super-team. Two league sources told Business Insider that there is a buzz about the Boston Celtics’ Kyrie Irving and the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Jimmy Butler teaming up next summer, with one source saying the chatter is “substantial.” Both sources also said the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets could be well-positioned to land the two players if they are indeed keen on teaming up.

Strickland had a long, successful career spanning 17 years that saw him play for nine different franchises. He played his best years for the Portland Trail Blazers and Washington Wizards, posting averages of 15.9 points and 8.5 assists per game. However, he was never a bona fide superstar as Irving is now, and he never made an All-Star team, although he did make the All-NBA second team in 1998. Strickland is smart enough to know that the Irving comparisons no longer make sense, and he admitted this to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. “People used to say, he plays like you,” Strickland said. “They was giving me that credit and I had my chest out, but once I saw him in the pros I was like, please don’t make that comparison anymore. He’s on another level. His creativity. His ballhandling, his shot-making capability, his jump shot, the physical play. I mean, just has it all. And then he has that mind-set, he has that killer mind-set where he thinks, ‘I got it, give me the ball, I’m going to make it happen.’ ”
When ‘Uncle Drew’ got the green light, Robinson said Irving hit him up again. “I literally stopped from going overseas to play basketball to do the movie,” Robinson said. “I turned down a couple deals because I was like, ‘This doesn’t come around too often. So let me jump on this movie deal.’ I haven’t looked back ever since. Now all the kids call me Boots, so it’s pretty cool. I got another nickname.”
