  • Report No notion Kyrie Irving will leave Celtics despite frustrations

Prior to Friday's game against the New York Knicks, amid the ongoing Anthony Davis hysteria, Irving was put through the gamut.

But this also made it a tough sell for another team to give up blue-chip prospects or draft picks for him without knowing how he'll look coming off a serious knee injury.
