Lately in the NBA, a lot of trade rumors have been approaching us. We all know Kyrie Irving is an absolute machine, especially in the finals. Who doesn’t want him on there roster? a few months ago Kyrie announced to the world that he no longer wants to play aside NBA legend, LeBron James. There was rumors of him being traded to the Timberwolves, Spurs, & the Knicks. Today we found out that Kyrie Irving was traded to the Celtics for another star point guard, Isaiah Thomas. Now this could be good for both players and i’ll tell you why. Kyrie Irving might of left a pretty good team but as we all know, he’s obviously still going to be apart of a very talented team, possibly another NBA finals team. Isaiah Thomas, he gets to be apart of a very talented team and he also gets to play along side of arguably the best NBA player ever. Now LeBron James on the other hand. This could be very good for King James because, he might of lost Irving but in return, he got a very cheap PG who can score and the money that isn’t being used to pay Isaiah Thomas could be used to pay for another good player, plus LeBron still has the option to leave next season. LeBron can try his best to in another ring with his new team and if he can’t, he has the option to leave. Kyrie Irving, a player who has averaged 21.6 points per game in his career and has been to the finals 3 times in a row, he will be able to most likely be the face of the Celtics franchise. He’s a young kid with a lot of capabilities and I know everyone is on the edge of their seat, waiting to see what he does for the Celtics. Isaiah Thomas, who averaged 19.1 points per game in his career and has been a 2x NBA All-Star has a chance to show what he can do in Cleveland, along side LeBron James. Trust me, this will be a NBA season to remember. Stay tuned!
