Ex-Celtics Player Says Team Has "Many Super Selfish Players"

It's safe to say that at least one former Boston Celtic isn't rooting for them in the NBA Finals. After playing in 18 games in Celtic green this season, Juancho Hernangomez says the team made him lose his love for basketball. 

And he took an indirect shot as some of his ex-teammates as well, telling Daniel Arriabas of El Pais that there were many "selfish" players on the Celtics: 

I wasn’t happy there, it was very hard. There was no communication. I didn’t know what was expected of me. There were many super selfish players, no team building. I lost my love for basketball a bit.

He wouldn't name names. But we all likely remember that earlier in the season, Celtics guard Marcus Smart accused Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum of not passing the ball. 

Hernangomez played for a total of three teams this season, also getting some run with the Utah Jazz and San Antonio Spurs. The 26-year-old averaged just 3.3 points in 11 minutes across his trio of stops in the league. 

But if basketball doesn't work out for Hernangomez, it does sound, from the early reviews, however, that he might have a career in acting. He co-starred in the new Adam Sandler movie "Hustle."
