Video: Marcus Smart says team was "dysfunctional," not just Kyrie's fault
The one guy who still has love for Kyrie Irving on the Celtics, Marcus Smart, was on ESPN's The Jump on Monday and came to the former point guard's defense again. Smart said all the players and the coach were to blame. And that Kyrie was misunderstood and was actually a solid teammate to Marcus.
One point that stood out was Marcus saying that the team actually had solid chemistry off the court, but it was on the court where the issues were. Basically too many scorers.
There's also stuff about weird Celtics Twitter, the Embiid shove, the Texas Tech incident, and flopping.
Marcus Smart on The Jump on if people are sleeping on 2019-20 Celtics: “100 percent think they [are]. To be honest, that’s exactly how we like it."
