Kyrie Irving stresses loyalty to teammates after Celtics’ sweep

Despite ending up on the wrong side of a first-round sweep, Kyrie Irving maintained his belief in the Nets organization immediately following Monday’s loss to the Celtics.

The star point guard told reporters he intends to stay with Brooklyn long-term shortly after the team’s season-ending defeat at Barclays Center. Irving, 30, has one year left on his contract, and is eligible for a five-year, max extension this summer.

“In terms of my extension, man, I don’t really plan on going anywhere,” he said after Game 4. “This is added motivation for our franchise to be at the top of the league for the next few years. I’m just looking forward to the summer, just building with our guys here.”
