BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Remember what Terry Rozier said when the Celtics' season ended?
"I thank God for my family, and boys back at the crib, they kept me level-headed all year 'cause I been dealing with some bullshit. I feel like we still all had that one goal. It wasn't easy on coach dealing with a lot of guys who wanna be great trying to get theirs."
Well, Rozier went on ESPN yesterday and continued to pile on. He discussed adjusting to playing with Kyrie Irving, attitudes in the room, and how much he sacrificed.
But, what did you sacrifice, Terry?
"Obviously, my talent, I think, the most," he said. "Me being out there and giving my full style of play, how I play, how Terry Rozier plays. I feel like I couldn't be that person."
How difficult was it for him returning to a reserve role?
"I feel like it was very difficult," he said. "I think anyone that was in my shoes, that can go and start, go into a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Finals, and then come back and have the season that we had this year, I feel like anybody in my position would say it's tough."
If Boston wanted to bring everyone back, would he be okay with that?
"I might have to go, I might have to go," he said. "I put up with a lot this year, so I, uh, you know, I think we all know I'm not trying to step into that again."
Rozier's a restricted free agent.
