True, Celts can't take IT back > Cavs with Kyrie

Too bad Cavs jumped the gun, I would've prefer Tatum, Nets pick, Crowder, filler as suppose to IT

He was going to trade away IT anyway because he wasn't paying him the max. Let the Cavs try working with a disgruntled Kyrie.


We'll see who blinks.


So Ainge blinked? Or was it more an eyelid twitch?

Great move for Boston. A second round pick to seal the deal ? Wow, that last addition looks like it turned out to be more of a face-saving item than a matter of value-getting for the Cavs.

Chump change !
A pebble in the shoe.
A bug in the teeth.
A fart in the wind.

Most second round picks turn out as instantly forgettable players.

The Cavs had already made a pretty good deal. Getting something else tossed into the mix gives them some PR protection if Thomas winds up missing a big chunk of the season. A second round pick in 2020 isn't much, but that sort of asset can be useful in a future trade.

I'm sure Kyrie saw he wasn't living up to his potential playing under the shadow of Lebron. One of his idols was Kobe and he saw how he had to carry a terrible team but in the process got to maximize his talents and points production. He saw Russell Westbrook this past season get the MVP on a team that sorely missed Durant. And also he put his career away from the fate of whether Lebron leaves Cleveland behind and letting him pick up the pieces.

Guess we'll see if Irving is as good as Irving seems to think he is.

He has all the talent in the world. It's just whether he wants to be more of a play-maker (which it appears he wants to be, and Boston wants to be) and be a better defender (still haven't heard anything about this from him).

If Coach Stevens can get him to up his play in these two areas, then we're looking at a fringe top 5 player in the league next season. We shall see..

I did not expect Kyrie to go to Boston.

It will be very interesting to see how he does there, although without Thomas, Crowder, Bradley, Olynk it is a completely different team than last year anyway.
