    CLAB 005: The Kyrie Conundrum -- deconstructing popular narratives about the divisive player

    Ahead of the aborted reunion with his former team, Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving finds himself at the nexus of several popular narratives circulating in the NBA and especially Boston Celtics media sphere. The Nets have struggled early while Boston has exceeded expectations in Kyrie's absence; to what extent is his presence (or lack thereof) responsible? Is he hard to get along with? Does he need a certain roster makeup to succeed? And speaking of absences, does the Duke product take games off when facing former teams at home? Join Justin Quinn and Cam Tabatabaie as they link up with the Brooklyn Buzz' Jac Manuel as we try to get to the hard data behind (or not) these talking points.

But, those former UConn Huskies who HAVE played for the Celtics have usually left an impression -- and in recent years, some very big ones. Join Justin Quinn as he catches up with friend of the pod and UConn Today editor Tom Breen to talk all things Celtics-Connecticut -- and apologies for the occasional glitch.
