The Boston Celtics introduced Kanter and Kemba Walker at a press conference Wednesday that was followed by breakout sessions with reporters. Kyrie Irving, of course, a reality of which he reminded Celtics fans with a not-so-thinly veiled swipe at the Brooklyn Nets point guard.

When asked about his decision to choose 11, Kanter mocked former Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving, telling reporters with a smile, "I wanna be the reason no one else will." . He had a mischievous look on his face as he leaned into the microphone. The Celtics recovered and ended up with Kemba Walker, who isn't exactly a bad Plan B. Boston also ended up with Enes Kanter, a solid offensive big man and well-known troll.

It took Kyrie Irving less than half a year to go from one of Boston's more beloved figures to easily its most hated. "And I want to be the reason why no one else wears it. [pauses]". He produced five double-doubles in 16 playoff games, including a 20-point, 18-rebound performance in Game 1 of Portland's First Round matchup against Oklahoma City on April 14. "I saw some people cover up Irving and put some Kanter tape on it", he said. "I thought this could become a thing. I'm against wasting. Just cover up the back".
