Kemba Walker Calls Out His Celtics Teammates

The Boston Celtics are struggling at the moment and there's certainly some trouble in paradise. The team finally has their three big pieces together healthy as Kemba Walker, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are leading the charge. One problem, they have no chemistry, the ball ain't moving and players are starting to turn on one another.

On Sunday, the Celtics lost to the dismal Washington Wizards 104-91, moving Boston to 5th in the east with a 13-13 record. 

After the game, get a load of these comments as Walker and Brown didn't hold back:

I could care less what people think. That is not what this is about. This is about us getting better. Every year is different, we have new guys, young guys, and that's on us, myself, and the guys that's been around. We got to change some things. We will. Them players only meetings don't work, to be honest. I'm gonna figure it out and get my guys together...We just gotta play harder. When you play hard, great things happen. It can't get no worse than this. - Kemba Walker


This comes after Brown was candid as ever after the Celtics loss a few days earlier:

Needless to say there's trouble in paradise and look for the Celtics to make some changes closer to the trade deadline. Will Walker get dealt? There's a chance, but it's not likely at this point. The team is going to use their trade-exception to make some noise. 

Interesting times for Celtics nation.
