Cavaliers send Irving to Celtics in blockbuster trade
24 August, 2017, 02:51 | Author: Christina Hansen
Thomas became a favorite in Boston, just as Irving was in Cleveland, and more than a few Celtics fans are likely unhappy to see the diminutive star sent away.
Irving joins a Celtics squad that finished first in the Eastern Conference during the regular season last season but was bounced by the Cavaliers in five games the Eastern Conference finals. Irving, 25, is a four-time All-Star whose 25.2 points per game last season also was a career high.
The deal keeps both Cleveland and Boston as the conference's top two teams and adds another element of drama to a rivalry that has usually centered around LeBron James. The Cavs will play host to the Celtics on Thursday, October 17th at 8:00pm, followed by the new-look Rockets vs. the Warriors at Oracle Arena.

Thomas missed all but the first 1 1/2 games of the Eastern finals against the Cavs in May because of a torn labrum and re-aggravation of a previous injury in his right hip. While the Brooklyn pick will give them fresh, top-tier youth that they have desperately needed, they now have another player on a one-year deal (Thomas). Irving, who'd helped the Cavs reach three straight NBA Finals-winning one-shocked the NBA when he announced he wanted to break up the band.
The majority of fans were upset over the loss of Thomas, who energized the Celtics for two seasons.
The deal put an end to one of the most unlikely and surprising trade controversies in recent National Basketball Association history.

While many are clamoring over the acquisition of Thomas, the player who may actually end up being the most valuable piece to Cleveland's championship run is Crowder. If he can stay healthy, the Cavaliers will be in great shape.
Kyrie will now move on to "greener" pastures (excuse the pun) in Boston, finally getting his wish to lead his own team. The Cavs never qualified for the playoffs during Irving's first three seasons. It would be hard to believe that Altman could have landed a better trade than the Boston one.
Admittedly this is a hard position to take, because the Cavaliers seemed to get as much as they could for the 25-year-old guard since he has been shopped for sometime.
