Joerger heaped praise on Doncic saying he didn’t see a “ceiling” on him despite thoughts to the contrary, suggesting a disagreement with the Kings pre-draft assessment of Doncic.
However, Joerger said there is no rift over the comments:
“All we’re trying to do is say something positive about another team’s player,” Joerger said, according to NBC Sports’ James Ham.
“There’s no veiled shots at anybody. De’Aaron (Fox) gushed about him and Bogi (Bogdanovic) gushed about him and his ability and wishing him the best. It’s unfortunate that we had to play him and so is the rest of the league because the guy is playing really well right now.”
“It was out of love and positivity and people are trying to turn it something between Vlade (Divac) and I. Vlade and I are like this. Three years we’ve been working together and we love it. I love him.”

Celtics’ Kyrie Irving Credits Team Meeting for Spark
The loss to Milwaukee back on December 21st was the Celtics’ 3rd in a row and dropped their record to 18-13 on the season.
“We could pinpoint a lot of turning points,” Irving said, according to Jay King of The Athletic.
“We just want to build that chemistry first. Just getting with one another (after the Bucks loss), really put everything out there and then move on from that point. At that point, playing against Milwaukee, we weren’t at rock bottom, but we needed to address some shit in this locker room. It’s just good to get stuff out in the air.”
Irving believes in this team’s chances this season, despite the early struggles.
“We’re not on a good team, we’re on a great one,” Irving said. “We have the talent to be great.”
