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.

"Well, it was my old jersey number, by the way, No. 11", said Kanter, who wore 11 with the Thunder for two seasons.

The pullback should have occurred two weeks after the truce went into power on December 18, yet that due date was missed. Griffiths brokered the ceasefire and troop withdrawal agreement during the peace talks in Sweden.

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".
