  • Five people – besides LeBron – who will be impacted by the Kyrie Irving trade

    Kyrie Irving got his wish and will be the unquestioned face of the Celtics’ franchise, no longer burdened with playing second fiddle to one of the game’s most transcendent talents. Now paired with prized free-agent signee Gordon Hayward, incumbent Al Horford and some promising young talent, the Celtics have positioned themselves to realistically compete for an NBA title next season. By acquiring Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn’s 2018 first-round pick from the Celtics for the disgruntled Irving, the Cavs shrewdly did both.

  • Bean: Isaiah Thomas was the unlikeliest of heroes, and we shouldn't forget him

    Whenever this golden age in Boston sports ends, Isaiah Thomas will be an afterthought. That says more about this time in Boston sports than it does about Isaiah Thomas.  Often times, cities are lucky to have one or two star players between all of their professional sports teams. They’re typically acquired by drafting the player high, giving them a boatload of money in free agency, or trading a ton to get them.  Thomas was none of those. He was the last pick of his draft and was traded from his second team to the Celtics for a mediocre package, because his stock to that point was mediocre.  MORE ON ISAIAH VIDEO: The best of Isaiah Thomas in Boston Cedric Maxwell: What will Isaiah's Boston legacy

  • Danny Ainge: Isaiah Thomas’ hip played ‘some’ role in Kyrie Irving trade

    Are we all underrating the Nets, whose 2018 first-round pick Boston sent to Cleveland? Were Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder just products of Brad Stevens’ system? Thomas will enter free agency next summer as a 29-year-old 5-foot-9 point guard seeking a max contract.

  • Time for a new NBA 2K18 cover

    BOSTON – You can add Jayson Tatum to the list of folks who were shocked by the news that four-time All-Star Kyrie Irving was coming to Boston.  The Celtics engineered a trade with Cleveland Tuesday night that sent Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the rights to Brooklyn’s 2018 first-round pick, to the Cavs for Irving.   “I was just as surprised as everyone else,” Tatum told reporters on Wednesday. “I saw my name come up. I didn’t know if I was going to get traded.”  When Boston and Cleveland talked earlier about a possible trade, the Cavs had indicated they wanted to do a deal but wanted Tatum included, according to a league source.   The Celtics refused, which led to the Cavs trying

  • NBA trade rumors: Cavs called Warriors about potential Kyrie Irving-for-Klay Thompson proposal

    The Cavs shipped off disgruntled All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to the Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the Nets' 2018 first-round pick late Wednesday. MORE: Celtics snag top player in Irving, but did they win deal with Cavs? While it could be years until the victor is truly evident, especially if Brooklyn's unprotected pick winds up being a projected superstar such as Duke commit Marvin Bagley III or Mizzou's Michael Porter Jr., we know the package Cleveland received from its Eastern Conference foe wasn't the only option the Cavaliers explored.

  • Thomas' injury was significant concern – Celtics GM

    The Boston Celtics had their reasons for trading star Isaiah Thomas to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
