  • Irving worth 'heavy price' - Ainge

    Boston Celtics executive Danny Ainge said Kyrie Irving's blend of youth, championship experience and sheer skill made him worth the "heavy price" of trading away Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder. Irving, who reached the NBA Finals with the Cleveland Cavaliers each of the past three seasons -- winning the title alongside superstar LeBron James in 2016 -- had let the Cavs know he wanted a change and they obliged on Tuesday with a blockbuster deal that sent the 25-year-old to the Celtics.

  • Five reasons why the Celtics are the best fit for Kyrie Irving

    BOSTON – Kyrie Irving is coming to Boston, the kind of news that many Celtics fans are still letting sink in.  The four-time All-Star was the centerpiece of a blockbuster trade Tuesday night with the Celtics that sent two-time All-Star Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the rights to Brooklyn’s 2018 first round pick, to Cleveland in exchange for the 25-year-old Irving.   Irving’s availability came about when he asked for a trade on July 21, setting off a slew of teams lining up to make sure the Cavs knew of their interest.   And while Cleveland’s preference was to deal him to a team out West (in fact, ESPN's Marc Spears reported that the Warriors turned down an Irving-for-Klay Thompson

  • Klay reacts to report that Cavs contacted Warriors about possible trade

    Klay Thompson is unintentionally hilarious. He's one of the best quotes in the NBA. On Wednesday, he spoke with The Athletic's Anthony Slater. One topic discussed -- the report that Cavs GM Koby Altman called the Warriors to discuss a potential Klay for Kyrie Irving deal. “It's really cool. It shows the Warriors believe in me and these other teams want me to be a part of their success. So I appreciate it. I've been in trade rumors forever. Everyone has. Except for maybe LeBron James, Steph — well, even Steph early in his career. "It's part of the business. It is flattering and I do appreciate it.” Back in October 2014, Klay signed a 4-year extension worth $68,979,450. He will make $17,826,150

  • Cleveland trade reaction: More inevitable than disappointing

    CLEVELAND For Cleveland fans and media at Progressive Field on Tuesday evening, Kyrie Irvings departure brought a sense of the inevitable more than disappointment. One fan, Greg Pramuka, was standing on the concourse just before the start of the Red Sox-Indians game, wearing a black Cavs t-shirt that said The First," in honor of 2016.

  • Kyrie Irving’s Last Cavaliers Tweet Is Pretty Awkward for All, Including NBA 2K18

    In all the sound and fury and general astonishment at the blockbuster trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics and Isaiah Thomas the opposite way, to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the two most important protagonists were the quietest of all. While the Celtics announced the Irving signing on their Twitter account with the message, “Welcome to Boston Kyrie Irving,” the All-Star point guard was silent on social media. Irving made no announcement on Instagram, where he has 9.9 million followers.

  • After Kyrie Irving Trade, LeBron James Urges Cavs Fans to Say Farewell the Right Way

    It has become a bizarre, almost sadistic, trend in the NBA world: One of the top players from a team decides to leave, to take up a new challenge elsewhere, and his fans—or former fans—show their fury, their pain. It happened when Kevin Durant last year left Oklahoma for Golden State, when Dwight Howard left the Magic and when LeBron James left the Cavs in 2010. The All-Star point guard is heading for the Boston Celtics, with Isaiah Thomas coming the other way.

  • As balance of power shifts slightly in East, should Warriors be worried?

    The pursuit of the Warriors got considerably noisier Tuesday, when the Cleveland Cavaliers granted Kyrie Irvings wish to be traded by sending the All-Star point guard to the Boston Celtics. Boston is slightly improved, Cleveland is roughly the same and the two teams are set to meet in the juiciest Eastern Conference Finals since James left Miami three summers ago. As for the Warriors, theyre still holding the Larry OBrien trophy and smoking fine cigars and waiting for rings to be presented in two months.

  • LeBron James Vs. Kyrie Irving: How to Watch Cavaliers-Celtics NBA Season Opener on TV and Via Livestream

    The blockbuster trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics and Isaiah Thomas to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night threw up a bunch of intriguing storylines, now and down the road. The ultimate, overarching question of who actually wins one of the more eye-opening deals in recent NBA history is going to have to wait for an answer, at least until it becomes clear how badly the Brooklyn Nets are going to tank in the 2017-18 season. At least we won’t have to wait long for the instant gratification of one narrative: Irving getting traded within the Eastern Conference means he’s going to come into direct contact on a regular basis with LeBron James, the future Hall of Famer whose looming influence over Irving was one major reason for the trade.

On Twitter, Irving’s last post is a retweet from August 7 that now looks a little awkward: It is an announcement that Irving would be the cover star of the videogame NBA 2K18, in his new Cavaliers uniform,
