At 5"9 and 185 lbs, IT is one of the worst defenders in the NBA and one of the easiest all-stars to shut down. Not knocking him, he's an awesome talent, but there's nothing Isaiah has over Kyrie. And Jae Crowder just doesn't make up for that loss.
Cavs shouldn't be looking for a facilitator in place of Kyrie, they should be looking for a player with his top tier scoring ability. Thomas just doesn't have that. He can put up points and is excellent at getting to the line, but he's proven very inconsistent when the competition and defense gets tough in the playoffs. Kyrie has helped LeBron win a finals and get to 3 straight with his reliable scoring, Thomas will just be serviceable point guard. I was hoping they'd get Cousins.
Really Hope IT proves me wrong.
Wtf this is the worst trade they couldve done. We literally got jackshit for kyrie. 5 ft nothin overated IT ass and crowder? And a pick for the team that just won the east last year so the pick is even fucking garbage. I want that new gm head on a fuckin stake fuck that dumbass mfer. Fire that sob. He clearly doesnt know jackshit about nba. Wtf
wow Goodbye Uncle Drew... why the Celtics? I don't know if this is a good idea. but let's hope their style of play can help the Cavs esp. Lebron James... and Love too .
Cavaliers have agreed to trade Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick.
To all negativism out there? damn. Isaiah Thomas can 'lead' a team which Kyrie never done to Cavs. Crowder and Zizic is a good addition at the bench (with defensive ability). Cavs really won this trade.
Love it. Cavs reset in case LeBron leaves. I think, however this saves LeBron from leaving and opens the door for a huge off season for Cleveland next year. You lose Kyrie's money. Isaiah may walk, but we'll have money to sign a big PG next season and the likely best player in the draft.
I think Cleveland made out. Everyone underestimates Thomas, but with the supporting cast he will have around him compared to who he had in Boston. I think everyone will be surprised
Man first of all you who are tripping have to understand this man DIDN'T want to be there. Second the draft pick will be at least a top 5. 3rd stop saying Thomas doesn't play defense like kyrie did! I love irving to but he DID NOT WANT TO BE THERE.
What a weird trade. Thomas and kyrie aren't incredibly different type of players. Crowder looks like a worker and improvement over richard Jefferson in the rotation. Haven't seen other cat play or don't remember. No clue how I feel about it we shall see. Thanks for the title runs kyrie good luck in Boston.
Josh Alexander - C's going to be good this season! They have starting five of Irving, Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Morris and Al Horford, AND No. 3 overall draft selection Jayson Tatum AND guard Marcus Smart!
I like it because Isaiah and Kyrie is about an even swap then Crowder can ball period, shoot and crash the boards, then a draft pick on top and is also trying to get a center on top? Lets do it!!!!
