Cleveland and Boston agreed on the exchange of Irving

24 August 2017

Tatum enters the National Basketball Association similar to the way Irving did when he left Duke after one season and joined a team that expected him to be an instant scorer. In an unbelievable turn of events, the Boston Celtics have traded Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and the Nets' 2018 unprotected first round pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Kyrie Irving.

The NBA2K Twitter account tweeted "whoops" after the trade went down, linking back to their tweet revealing Irving as the cover artist.

LeBron James exit rumours started to swirl shortly after, followed by Irving's desire to move to a different team. Boston's odds remain at 10/1, making them the second favorite in the conference.

Kyrie Iriving Cleveland Cavaliers at Golden State Warriors, Oakland, USA - 11 Jun 2017 Cleveland Cavaliers player Kyrie Iriving speaks to the media in the interview room during media availability at the Warriors practice court in Oakland, California, USA, 11 June 2017. The 25-year-old guard has three years left on his contract with the AAV being $18.8, $20, and $21 million per season until 2019-20.

Not only that but adding a very big bargaining chip in a first round pick the Cavs are likely not done yet even after adding Thomas and Jae Crowder.

Minnesota Timberwolves fans should love the trade, along with Boston Celtics fans.

"My reasoning why the Celtics would never beat the Cavs in the last years' Eastern Conference Finals - their best player was 5'9". Either way, the Boston Celtics are now a better team.

Time will tell if Irving is a true cornerstone of a championship team, and Gorman cautions that it will take time for these new Celtics (with only four players returning from last season's 53-win team) to mesh. Up until now, the Cavaliers have played LeBron James over 35.5 minutes per game for his three seasons in the Land.

"On behalf of the entire franchise, I want to thank Kyrie Irving for the six impressive years he spent in Cleveland wearing the Cavaliers uniform", said Gilbert.

Jese was allowed to gallop into the penalty area unchecked and Arsenal boss Wenger couldn't hide his disappointment. Asked if he felt that effort should have stood, Wenger said: "One hundred percent".

This is not the first time that a cover athlete for a sports video game was traded before the season started. While this does not mean Crowder is a better player than Thomas, it's an interesting measure of success beyond the basic plus-minus counting stat. Unless there was a very good reason for doing so.
