The Celtics are in a lousy predicament, because Kyrie Irving decided to become a malcontent and Gordon Hayward shattered his ankle. Danny Ainge assembled a team that could’ve competed for a championship last season, but the players didn’t succeed. This is not his fault. I am not saying this as one...

Looks like Stephen A. Smith felt the need to clear some things up about his report from Tuesday on Kyrie Irving’s future after Danny Ainge said on Wednesday he hasn’t been given indication Irving has ruled out re-signing with the Celtics. During Thursday’s “First Take” on ESPN, Smith, again,...
