The night he bailed on his teammates to get plastic surgery before his new movie even though the Celtics were playing Game 7 of the conference finals (Irving was injured at the time) . . . Telling Celtics fans, “If you guys will have me back, I plan to re-sign here’’ . . . The night he told us he called LeBron James to ask how to handle young ballplayers . . . The time he was not healthy enough to play the final two games before the All-Star break — then was able to play in the All-Star Game . . . Griping to TV cameras when parading into the Garden for work . . . Showing up Brad Stevens when he didn’t like the play call at the end of a game in Orlando . . . Explaining Stevens’s plight, saying, “He’s never coached any player like me. I’m a great player. I know that. There’s not going to be another player like me and I understand that. I’m an actual genius when it comes to the game.’’

A
ll-NBA point guard Kemba Walker has told the Charlotte Hornets he intends to sign with the Boston Celtics once free-agent contracts are allowed July 6, multiple sources told the Observer.

Walker, a three-time All-Star, is the Hornets’ all-time leading scorer. Though the Hornets could have paid him as much as $221 million over five years, the most the team decided it could justify was less than $170 million. That was due to concerns about paying future the NBA luxury tax, which is the league’s penalty on bloated payrolls.

Walker will be leaving for a Celtics team expected to lose point guard Kyrie Irving in free agency, possibly to the Brooklyn Nets. The most the Celtics, or any other NBA team, can pay him is $140 million over four years. The Celtics are also losing center Al Horford in free agency and have the flexibility to create a maximum-salary slot for Walker.

Brad Stevens is focused on the future

LAS VEGAS — If there has been one constant during Celtics coach Brad Stevens’s tenure, it is change. Even as Boston ascended to the cusp of the NBA Finals, roster reshuffling became the norm. And this year, which ended with a disappointing loss in the conference semifinals, was followed by one of the more dramatic roster makeovers under Stevens.

Kyrie Irving, Al Horford, Marcus Morris, Terry Rozier, and Aron Baynes are all gone, replaced by a group that is headlined by Kemba Walker, Enes Kanter and four draft picks. On Tuesday night, for the first time since the season ended, Stevens talked in detail about the frustrating end to last season and the promise of what’s ahead.
