Published on
Terry Rozier says he was playing in the shadows of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward all season for the Boston Celtics and felt "thrown all the way in the back seat" when Kyrie announced that he would stay with the Celtics if welcomed back.

  • Mans really acting like he’s a 5 time all star or a respected vet in the league, meanwhile he’s barely a role player averaging 7 points for his career. Had one good series. Humble yourself.

  • The Lord Jesus Christ is arriving soon. Jesus loves you, friends. My prayer is that this comment reaches one person that needs to read this. The Lord is for us, not against us. He is not angry at you, He truly loves you. He took our punishment upon Himself on the cross, He died so that we may live! 3 days later He arose again, assuring us of our redemption. Hallelujah! He promises He will never drive anyone away when they come to Him, so don’t let anyone or anything stop you from coming to Jesus today! All you need is faith as a mustard seed and sincere words from your heart. He will forgive you, make you new, deliver you from your sins and from the judgement headed to this earth. For all those that call upon the Name of The Lord shall be saved! (Romans 10:13)

  • All these negatives comments are bum ass celtics fan. Glad Bucks spank y'all.

  • Cringe worthy goddamn

  • Everybody saying he wrong for calling out his teammates. Those teammates are costing him $$$. And also the team wins. Sometimes you have to call things out if things aren’t working.

  • He just said he a top point guard in the league 😂🤣 he tripping you a back up pg it's alot of pgs in the league that can start over him

  • Referred to him as “Brad” rather than as “coach.” 🤔

  • Come to the Bulls Rozier

  • After all the shit Kyrie talked, y'all are surprised he says this??

  • he should have seek an advice from stepehen curry. speaking of sacrificing his talent, a 2 time MVP at that when KD came along.

  • He should demand a trade, or Kyrie should go to the Lakers

  • He said he's a top point guard in the league I hope that was a joke because I can't stop laughing 😂😂😂😂

  • I fuckz with scary Terry, in this day in age they always outcast the people who keep it 100...Scary Terry is a two way guard and has that dog in him,who knows how good he can be if a team gives him the keys to run the team, As a 76ers fan I’d take him on my team any day, but I think he should go to the suns or magic if Boston doesn’t give him the bag

  • It was Gordon fault because he was killin with kyrie last year

  • Be careful what you wish for Terry, asked Kyrie!

  • This will be a PR disaster if this move backfire his chance

  • cry on a Terry cloth...

  • Errrrr. Terry you're at most 75 in NBA2k. Don't get carried away. Note to self. Fire agent.

  • his grill is fucked all the way up

  • who does this trashbag think he is ahahhaaha

  • He's right they would have been much better if he got minutes over Gordon.

  • I love how honest he is and if I'm another team I want him. He's a defender and good all around player.

  • This man can’t wear green ever again. Fucking baby

  • Go to Dallas

  • dam terry i aint fucking with you no more fuck out of here you a come of the bench ass nigga

  • Jus hurt that we fell out in the semi's terry u r a top point guard u r a great player 4 the team don't leave jus the way it is a lot if talents and a lot of egos as well jus need to get it right Gordon should leave celtics was doing great while he was out injured we finish 1st r 2nd seed last season plus went all the way to the eastern conference finals without kyrie for the whole playoffs need to figure it out Brad Stevens r trade Hayward 4 another role player not a top superstar player to much ego can destroy a team

  • Everybody talking this, he bashing the team shit. Fuck the team, they will trade him in a heart beat for something better without hesitation. Look at what they did to Isaiah, he put it all on the court the year they battled LBJ in the playoffs and what did they do, trade him for Irving, and where did Boston go again? Are they in the finals? So Rozier, talk your shit. Fuck all that team bullshit. Boston wanted to make the great white hope at the expense of good talent on the team. Not to make this this thing racial, but this is Boston we talking about, the most racially divided city in America. Their experiment to graph the next Bird failed. Oh yeah, there could never be another Larry Bird. Play to what you have already, the fans still love the franchise. So yeah, keep talking bro, keep talking.

  • They lost because the the hit a wall "Bucks" to be honest, the Bucks can be the No.1 team today, they have the edge even against GSW. And Terry, you are the "attitude" man.

  • He might have aired too much dirty laundry....but We all know Scary Terry can ball and still deserves a big check this off season. The Bulls Will Nab Em

  • Listening to the expletive speak proves college as an educational institution is a bunch of expletive.

  • terry speaking on kyrie is what kyrie was thinking about bron but didnt actually say

  • TOP 200

  • This is definitely gonna be a regrettable moment for this kid when he looks back in time and reflects

  • Pelicans looking at Celtics package for AD as pick #14, Tatum stunk in the playoffs and the locker room was poison. They will be calling the Lakers.

  • This is not the solution to the bad chemistry, terry

  • IF Rozier was taking 25 shots a game i doubt if He pass the rock...Rozier is a Ball hog suspect.. Seen it alot during regular season

  • They went to the ECF and took Lebron to 7 without Kyrie and Haywood, this year hey couldn’t get passed the 2nd round with those 2 “allstars” he’s speaking facts, Kyrie is a straight cancer, iso hero diva, thinks he’s a number one option but isn’t

  • terry rosier should have known that this was a bad idea. He is not as talented as Kyrie and he should know that. The celtics without Kyrie went to the east finals riding on no expectations. The east was much better this year i.e bucks, 76ers , raptors.

  • his grill is fucked all the way up

  • good luck with this

  • He just called himself out as well

  • And people wonder why the Celtics had problems. As far as the egos and problems and stuff, nobody was even talking about Terry Rozier, and then he comes out and says this. Some rosters are just different than others.

  • Y'all mad because the man telling his truth.

  • I feel embarrassed watching this lol. Stop talking

  • The Celtics didn’t succeed for the same reason the warriors will. 2 time MVP and NBA champion let’s a guy like KD come in and take the major reigns and lead the team in scoring, let’s him have his looks, highly unselfish play, and he was WILLING to sit back and let his team play. The Celtics had egos, and your fucking one of them dude. The shit your talking is what these analyst have been roasting the Celtics for. Your not willing to take a seat for the betterment of a TEAM. Your worried about your “talent” your a role player. This is why this team is failing. They have poisons like this in the locker room. You said it yourself, there’s all these guys trying to do this and that so your really worrying about yourselves instead of the Celtics? That’s an L for y’all right there.

  • PHX SUNS

  • What did he expect to accomplish with this appearance??

  • Kyire didn't care what happened in Boston he was done with them. Look how they knock the confidence out that young core that ran the table damn near when both kyire and Heywood was down . Look how mangement stuck to them. Fuck Boston .... Good how it turns out for them

  • send him to phoenix or pistons

  • As a Knicks fan, now I can see why they want to target Rozier in free agency 🤦🏻‍♂️. I hope NYK let somebody else pay this guy and Kyrie.

  • I don’t have A problem wit a man speaking his mind. You gotta stand for something. He real 4 dis lol

  • People say this isn't a "good look for his career".. Why? Because he called out the fact that he was treated differently then another player, or he made more of a sacrifice then any other player. Maybe its because he had the balls to say what no one else had the balls to say. Either way, y'all need to quit being soft. When kyrie called out his team it was "Oh yeah he's wrong for doing that, but he has a point" Here its "this isn't a good look on his career" Fuck off you pussies, realize that teamwork is better than one broken legged man and one ball hog who needs a batman to win. *I don't dislike anyone of these guys* But im sick of reading the comments, all of you downies think that this is a bad look, really this is great. WE SHOULD BE CALLING OUT TEAMMATES, THIS IS A SPORT THAT THEY'RE TRYING TO WIN IN AFTER ALL, IF YOU WANNA WIN YOU TELL THEM STRAIGHT UP.

  • This is definitely gonna be a regrettable moment for this kid when he looks back in time and reflects

  • Reggie Jackson was in the same spot with OKC being behind Westbrook. I Bet Detroit Regret Giving Him That contract

  • It’s a trap!!!

  • Nigga read the book 48 laws of power and said "I'm doing the exact opposite!"

  • Come to Miami, Rozier. We need a point guard. You'll start

  • Says the guy w the second most touches on the team only behind Kyrie

  • STFU DUDE! He didnt do shit against bucks

  • I don't see him playing for Boston after these comments. Team goes before players

  • This guy choked in game 7 last year stfu

  • 01:41 the reason why this league sucks... he grabs the ball in front of the ref...

  • 9PTS and 3 ass, in the playoffs last year 16PTS 5 ass...thats not an elite PG...

  • Kyrie Irving messed him up

  • This fu look like he’s on the first 48 for career suicide lol

  • Kids.... this is what happens when you grow up an uncoachable athlete

  • It may not have been wise but I think with the position he's in, he had the right to say it publicly. Kyrie did it, so why can't he? When Celtics lost that preseason game to Hornets, I knew something was wrong.

  • Gets given three options: Terry Rozier: I think it’s a little bit of both 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️

  • dumb move by terry's camp to go to the media like this...not only he ripped his team but he also kind of destroyed his chance on getting a good contract this off season...he's not gonna get a lot of calls about this...He shouldn't have talk about his teammates like that...now everyone knows he's a big complainer and also has a huge ego...

  • If Jimmy Butler leaves go to Philly.

  • yeah turning 22 your rookie year as a 6'1 you don't have a lot of time to sit around and wait for your talent. We should have taken Larry Nance Jr. with that 16th pick that year. Go Celtics

  • “I’m a top point guard in this league”😂😂😂😂😂

  • He did get his chance to be terry rozier and he kept missing shots..he tried too much to be like kyrie and he FAILED MISERABLY

  • respect to Terry for speaking his mind and not being a pussy bitch like kyrie not wanting to answer questions

  • please get the kid into a speech class.

  • I forgot he was on the Celtics!! 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Yeah I said what I said!! Damnnn!

  • Houston should get scary terry

  • Wow. This is ballsy

  • Stop it hes not even top 15 pg in the league

  • oh my.... this guy is such a victim! Get the fuck outta here.

  • So who should we sacrifice their talent then? Kyrie? Howard? Ide rather sacrifice this dude rather than the 2..

  • he jus want a big payday.. he wants more money

  • man...who put him up there?! or at least they should have told him what they were gonna ask him before hand.P.S I like him ,but he's a back up material .he can't shoot

  • Big respect to this guy for his honesty and courage.

  • Welp his Boston days are over.

  • Man they dug the hole for u and u jumped in it... Smh

  • Gordon was not the problem because when Kyrie didn't play the Celtics played great

  • lol he doesn't complain but keeps on talking how he sacrificed for the team and calling out his teammates. the irony

  • Tell truth Rozier, Kyrie sucks as a teammate

  • Understanding his impact on the team, and a player that performs for 1/3 of the game, I do not believe he is a 'top point guard' in this league. Statistically at least. If he is able to be traded or in his free agency, leave the Boston Celtics to prove his worth elsewhere... Then I may consider him a top PG. But he's got a lot of climbing to do before then. And by 'top', I'm referring to the first 15. Each to their own on their opinions, however, I just don't see it. Although, his perspective on the sacrifices made may be accurate. Still don't believe Gordon Hayward should have been returned to the line-up as directly as he was.

  • Boosie Badass

  • Rozier> kyrie 🤷🏽‍♂️

  • God loves sacrifice 😂😘💪💥💘🙏

  • You just lost money...you not a superstar yet. Danny go trade you.

  • It’s so rare to hear someone say what he really feels that most of you cant handle it.

  • His mom made him say that. 💯

  • These hoes have to transform to make look good for ya's even if they ain't fine cuz some big ass titties & a big ass is a gold mine ya shmal mAh! The same goes for the men to, in other words nobody is N alrighty

  • I feel soo bad for Kyrie knowing these are the dudes he had to lead

  • I don’t think he called out his teammates, he just called out Kyrie. Kyrie is all about Kyrie, he is not a team player so it is what it is. It is obvious and no one wants to say it but Boston does not need a Kyrie Evin.

  • He's only saying what everyone has been thinkin all year. Period.
