It seems like there are questions about basically every NBA star's future at this point. With how much movement there's been in the league lately, this is probably fair.

Kyrie Irving is not exempt from any of these discussions. The star point guard has only been with the Boston Celtics for one season, but he's eligible to opt out of his contract next summer and become a free agent.

Of course, the speculation about his future has already begun.

Irving spoke to reporters today about his future. He was honest.

From the Boston Globe:

“My hope is that maybe we could limit it to maybe one question a day about what I’m doing next year. That’s my hope. But obviously I can’t really control that. But I think you guys can feel my attitude is really just redemption next year. Really integrating myself with our team again and really focus on winning a championship.

“That’s the only thing I’m really worried about. Until I get to that point, then I can’t really answer any questions. I’m pretty sure management and I will have a talk, but that talk won’t happen now.”

That's a good answer. It's really unfair for any NBA star to make definitive statements about their future a year-plus out.

He was also asked about the possibility of LeBron coming to Boston. Here's what he said:

“In this business, I’ve experienced it all and I’ve seen a lot, so we’ll see what management decides,” Irving told reporters.
