Three Attributes Kyrie Irving Brings To The Celtics

In just three short seasons Celtics General manager Danny Ainge has put together a Celtic team ready to challenge Golden Stae for The World Title. This past summer Ainge took one step to get him even closer to the World title. Ainge went out and signed free agent Gordon Heyward and acquired disgruntled Cavalier Kyrie Irving. In this post, we’ll look at three attributes Irving brings to the Celtics.                                                                                                                                                                                      First and foremost Irving brings a championship ring to the parquet. In his six years in Cleveland Irving won a world championship in 2015/16 against the Warriors. Also to his credit, Irving is a four_ time All_ star. But after a disastrous opening night, Irving witnessed new teammate Gordon Heyward go down with a broken ankle. To make matters worse it was determined that Heyward will be out for the remainder of the season and playoffs.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Despite the turmoil, Irving and the Celtics overcame adversity and enjoyed a sixteen game winning streak and a respectable first place standing with a 17-3 record at Thanksgiving.                                                                                                                                                                                                              After twenty games Irving is averaging 25 points per game and some games as many as 30. After six years of playing opposite LeBron,  he can finally be himself in Boston.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Coming to such a young team as the Celtics Irving brings leadership and experience to the Celtics young nucleus. Irving serves as a role model for youngsters Jaylen Brown and first _year player Jason Tatum. Despite the injury to Heyward, the Celtics still have enough to be the first seed in the East                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  With sixty games left Boston will still need contributions from all twelve bodies. In the off seasonAinge also added veteran swingman,  Marcus Morris for depth. Ainge paid dearly for it by trading longtime favorite Avery Bradley. Bradley a long time Celtic is one of the top three defensive players in the game.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Being such a long season anything can happen such as the Celtics witnessed opening night to Gordon Heyward. But with Irving playing at such a high level and injury issues in Cleveland, things are looking good for Boston.  Despite being a great player Irving has many other attributes to offer the Celtics.
