"Everybody was running around with their heads cut off, like chickens," Rozier told Yahoo Sports. "Coach [Brad Stevens] was in a tough position, one of the toughest positions, dealing with all these guys with attitudes, all that shit. Guys that's All-Stars, guys getting paid a lot of money, guys trying to get paid. It's tough."
Rozier, who saw his minutes halved this season after Kyrie returned from injury, doesn't think his level of play and his playing time add up.
"A lot of things weren’t fair to me, but it’s not about me. That’s why I don’t bitch and complain,” Rozier said. "I don't give a fuck what nobody say, I sacrificed the most out of anybody. I'm a top point guard in this league. I feel like it's a fresh start, whether I'm here or whether I'm gone."
The talk of being somewhere else next season continued, with Rozier declining to comment on the Celtics' ability to match offers he might get in the offseason.
Stevens admitted that the disappointing season for the Celtics can be laid at his doorstep. He said that the lack of cohesion between the team full of stars was fully his fault, something that can't be comforting for players like Rozier to hear.
"I did a bad job. At the end of the day, your team doesn't find its best fit together, it's on you," Stevens said. "I'll be the first to say, as far as any other year I've been a head coach, it's certainly been the most trying."
