Speaking to reporters in Waltham on Tuesday, Irving shook his head and answered quickly when asked if his recent knee surgery had changed his thinking about signing an extension a year before he could opt out of his deal and enter unrestricted free agency in 2019.

From all the facts in evidence, however, Irving seems to very much like his role, his teammates and the general concept of playing in Boston.

"Management and I will have a talk, but that talk won't happen now", he said.

Green Teamers were some of the first to chide James when he evacuated Dan Gilbert's dumpster fire for Miami that summer, only to see James put the nail in the Big Three's coffin with a gentleman's sweep of the Celtics in 2011 and a 45-point coming-out party in the Garden in a career-defining Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals a year later.

Which team will LeBron James play for next season?

This is something that Irving expressed concerning his team stating that the Celtics have the "championship pedigree" with the group of players that they have assembled, according to Jay King of The Athletic.

Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving is one of the best point guards in the National Basketball Association.

"The focus is exclusively on winning a championship next year. They gained a lot of experience, and now it can only help us going forward".

The Celtics would of course love some clarity from Irving at some point. Some of their numbers probably didn't look as appealing to the outside-looker, but they were just - they were always locked in. One, you could trade Gordon Hayward to Cleveland for LeBron. And then when they were afforded the opportunity to take the reins of the team, you saw them take full advantage of it. I'm excited. What makes it even more exciting and the challenge is now we have championship pedigree. He lives in the now, and knows it's not in his best interest to give up his only leverage with Boston come next summer. "Our young guys [have experience] that sometimes other young guys in the league aren't necessarily afforded".
