BRIGHTON - Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier sent out a cryptic tweet on Tuesday morning, causing Celtics and NBA Twitter to jump to all sorts of conclusions about the meaning behind his message.
Let’s do us ALL a favor— Terry Rozier (@T_Rozzay3) November 20, 2018
With Twitter’s quick explosion over the tweet, Rozier sent out a follow up message about an hour later.
I forgot y’all get happy feet..I wasn’t talking about me ♂️ chill with the bad talk— Terry Rozier (@T_Rozzay3) November 20, 2018
The team held practice on Tuesday afternoon at the Auerbach Center, and of course the questions regarding his social media activity were thrown at the Celtics’ guard. Rozier was initially asked how practice was on Tuesday, and the 24-year-old joked by beginning his answer with, “Is this the warm up question?”
When he was finally asked about the tweet, Rozier laughed and responded, “Wasn’t talking about y’all. I got a life outside of basketball... I knew that was a warmup question to get to that.”
“You know I got love for y’all, I got love for the fans,” said Rozier. “It wasn’t nothing on that. We gone look to come out and play better tomorrow. Make sure everybody happy (laughs). ... Coming to a place like this, this type of organization, with the diehard fans, that’s just what it is. ... At the end of the day, the fans going to ride for us, they got our backs. You got some people that think they’re GMs, but that’s fine. It’s a hit or miss with it. I’m happy to be here.”
Rozier seems very upbeat and happy during his media availability, even joking about past tweets that have also been taken the wrong way. In July of 2017, Rozier posted a picture on his snapchat with the caption, “Here today..Gone tomorrow,” which caused fans to believe he was going to be traded. He was asked on Tuesday if he had flashbacks to last July.
“(Laughs) Oh man, see that’s another example,” said Rozier. “I think I said here ‘today, gone tomorrow’ (laughter). It’s all love.”
Rozier and the Celtics take on the New York Knicks tomorrow night at TD Garden at 7:30 PM EST.
