Kyrie Irving, Celtics owner had recent positive text exchange

The Boston Celtics principal owner, Wyc Grousbeck, took to WEEI to discuss the Celtics. He made comments on new addition Kemba Walker and an apparent text he received from former player Kyrie Irving.

Grousbeck was complimentary of Irving after a recent text message exchange with the former Celtics point guard. It seems as though the Celtics have officially moved on from the trivial ball-handler.

Grousbeck has even nicer things to say about Walker:

The Celtics are now Walker's team, he is their leader and the ball will spend a majority of time in his hands. Now we will see if he can deliver on those talks. The Celtics have a tough road ahead of them to get to the NBA Finals again.

They need a better locker room culture, they need to figure out how to defend despite not having an overwhelming defensive capability on paper, and they need to demonstrate an inner fire. Kemba Walker looks like he is well on his way to bringing some of that to Boston.
