Steve Kerr on Kyrie Irving with Celtics: 'It's his team'

The Celtics' rosy outlook hasn't escaped the attention of Steve Kerr, who gassed up the team while talking to reporters yesterday. Even while his box score numbers have dipped, he's helping his team win in new ways.

"I think we can credit that in the win column", Irving told me after the Hawks game, rocking a gray sweatshirt inside a slim-tailored navy suit. "(It) just looks like Kyrie knows it's his group and he's thriving playing with that group of players around him".

And, of course, there's Irving, who provides heavy doses of scoring and playmaking. But his plus-minus is a career-best plus-7.2 early on.

The Celtics have the statistical profile of a good defensive team. Brad (Stevens) is fantastic. Second-year wing Jaylen Brown has improved immensely from a solid, but unspectacular rookie season. And their bigs are really smart.

They're not the only players in the National Basketball Association that have adopted the vegan lifestyle, as there are several players in the league that go without meat including Denver Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler and Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard. They're all on a string.

But they also held onto young players like Brown and Tatum and they have held onto their other draft picks. Which means the Warriors, who are heavy favorites to make it four straight themselves, may be getting a preview Thursday of the Eastern Conference opponent in the way of their pending dynasty. The Celtics hoarded assets and famously withheld them when star players became available.
