Count former Celtics All-Star Antoine Walker among those who doesn't view Kyrie Irving as a leader.

Appearing on FS1, Walker lambasted the Celtics guard following a 118-95 loss to the Raptors. In particular, he didn't appreciate Irving brushing off questions about comments from Marcus Smart criticizing the squad's effort.

"Kyrie's not a leader," Walker said. "He's a great player, he's a superstar in this league, I would love to have him on my team, he's a closer. . . . But he's not a leader. Last night, to have no comments and leave Marcus Smart's comment out to dry lets you know his concern about being on the Celtics."
