Along with this 14-game winning streak comes criticism from fans across the NBA world, but Kyrie Irving doesn’t seem to let it phase him. Dominating the Eastern Conference by over 5 games, the Celtics are clear favorites to dethrone LeBron James from another Eastern Conference Championship, but we will have to wait and see how the rest the the season will unfold.
But in the mean time, Kyrie looks to keep the energy in the media cycle leveled out, giving flat answers that show that every team in the NBA is look at them as the leaders in the pack.
Kyrie asked about streaking Celtics having a target on their back now.
“We have a target on our back now? That’s a great perspective. It’s fun. I just think that our focus is not necessarily on that. I don’t even think we see it as that."
