A Mega-trade has been confirmed hours ago by official National Basketball Association sources and the teams involved, sending Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Boston Celtics in a package for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Center Ante Zizic and Brooklyn's 2018 unprotected first-round pick from the Kevin Garnett deal.
With how things ended between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Kyrie Irving, plenty could have been said (or not said) by current Cavaliers players, coaches, and members of the front office following the announcement that Uncle Drew had been traded to the Boston Celtics.
It's hard to argue that Irving was deprived of opportunity playing with James; he averaged 25.2 points and 5.8 assists last season, shooting 47 percent from the field and 40 percent from 3-point line.

In 2015, Mesereau represented Suge Knight in the former rap mogul's murder case, but the two parted ways the following year.
Fresh reports from the USA claim Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is set to leave the side for a second time. "Isaiah's play-off performance under very hard circumstances will live on in history, and we wish them all the best". In the past two NBA Finals, Irving has averaged 27.1 points per game in the 2016 Finals and 29.4 in this past season's Finals.
Thomas, at 5 feet 9 inches one of the shortest players in the league, had led the Celtics' resurgence in recent years.
Irving will link up with former Utah Jazz star Gordon Hayward and four-time All-Star Al Horford in Boston. This is a huge trade which will certainly inject some much-needed excitement into the mundane Eastern Conference.

Mojo Rawley and Zack Ryder also had a good showing and were somewhat protected by the distraction finish. Owens stared down towards the ring at Shane and Styles as WWE "SmackDown" went off the air.
"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. However, that didn't seem to be enough for the 25-year-old, who has wanted to be the prime player and focal point on his own team.
This Cleveland Cavliers and Boston Celtics trade was about more than just the players involved. His father, Drederick Irving, played for Boston University and is a member of the BU Athletic Hall of Fame.
Thomas elected to rehabilitate and rest the injury rather than have surgery, and this month told the Boston Herald he would be ready for camp.

It is worth mentioning here that the SC bench that gave this historical verdict consisted of judges from five different religions. Muslim women, too, have respect. "We need to pay attention to how the decision is implemented".
"Isaiah embodied what it meant to be a Celtic". He improved his skills each year, but it's his energy and fight that will be remembered. Another element to this story is that the Celtics open the upcoming season on the road against the Cavs.
