In one of the biggest blockbuster trades in the NBA in a long time, all-star Kyrie Irving is packing his bags and leaving Cleveland.
All this after being traded to Boston for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets’ 2018 unprotected first round pick all in exchange.
This all stems after Kyrie took a sudden turn on the team after the finals, including LeBron James. Apparently he no longer wanted to be “Robin” to LeBron’s “Batman,” even though he has played the key player role in the organization before – with no results.
LeBron has apparently moved on saying he has “nothing but respect, what a ride it was our 3 years together.” Only time will tell if this is a good move for Irving, or if it’s the end of what could have been an illustrious career in Cleveland.
