We are in the midst of the NFL doldrums. Patriots training camp doesn’t begin for another month and Bill Belichick is busy cavorting in the Greek islands with his boo.

Kyrie Irving is apparently showing more effort in his single-person pursuit of Kevin Durant this summer than he displayed on the defensive side of the floor all season long. The two superstars have met twice in recent weeks, according to Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher. League sources say they got...

The Celtics will become a much less talented team on the court if and when Kyrie Irving decides to sign elsewhere in free agency –– and right now, it looks like that is a “when.” But with the addition of first-round pick Grant Williams, at least they’ve become a lot more scientifically savvy. The C...

Perhaps the most intriguing option to replace the seemingly departed Kyrie Irving at point guard is no longer available. The Grizzlies traded star point guard Mike Conley Wednesday to the Jazz in exchange for Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver, Grayson Allen and two first-round picks, including the No. 23...

Earlier this year, Kyrie Irving demanded everyone wait until July 1 to ask him about his free agency plans. But it seems like the Celtics won’t have to wait until the Summer Solstice to know about their mercurial star’s intentions. He’s already good as gone, according to multiple reports. The...

The Celtics are in a lousy predicament, because Kyrie Irving decided to become a malcontent and Gordon Hayward shattered his ankle.

Kevin Durant’s Achilles injury could keep Kyrie Irving in Boston. It is undoubtedly crass to think of a potentially career-altering injury in those terms, but Durant’s status will likely impact NBA free agency more than any other variable this summer. He is the first big domino, and now, he may...

There is at least one person in the basketball world who isn’t interested in Kyrie Irving’s free agency saga, and he’s done something Irving hasn’t achieved: help bring a championship to Boston. In a recent interview with Fox Sports’ Kristine Leahy, Kendrick Perkins doesn’t hide his apparent...
