Can't wait for your first glimpse of Kyrie Irving in action in a Celtics uniform?
You don't have to wait until the preseason opener Oct. 2 vs. Charlotte at TD Garden. 2K Games' NBA 2K18, released Friday, tweeted a trailer on Saturday that features Irving prominently in action sequences rocking his new Celtics duds.
Irving is shown being introduced in the Celtics' new green-on-black Statement uniforms and the trailer goes on to feature the new Celtics guard driving past some of the NBA's best. The point guard Irving was traded for, Isaiah Thomas, is also featured in his new Cavs No. 3 jersey.
The NBA 2K18 cover that came out Friday still has Irving in a Cavs jersey but will be re-released with Irving in Celtics white and green.
BOSTON – The first member of the Brad Stevens’ coaching tree is about to take off. Celtics assistant coach Walter McCarty is expected to be named head coach at Evansville University.
McCarty, an Evansville, Ind. native, was selected over a field of candidates that included former Indiana University standout Calbert Cheaney and David Ragland who, like McCarty, is an Evansville native.
The 6-foot-10 McCarty, a 10-year NBA veteran with seven-plus spent with the Celtics, has been part of Stevens’ coaching staff since 2013. The former Celtic has been a college assistant coach at Louisville (2007-2010) in addition to the NBA’s Indiana Pacers (2010-2011).
