Marcus Smart, Celtics ready to move on, 'tired of hearing' about ex-teammate Kyrie Irving

NEW YORK -- The Boston Celtics didn't get a chance to see Kyrie Irving in what was supposed to be his return to Boston Wednesday night.

They did, however, get a chance to see him at the conclusion of the Brooklyn Nets' 112-107 victory here Friday afternoon, with several of his former teammates -- along with his replacement, Kemba Walker -- going over to give him a hug after he sat out for the eighth straight game with a right shoulder impingement.

And, when asked about seeing Irving postgame, all of them said they are ready to move on from talking about him.
