The basketball world has been waiting for LeBron James to speak on the Kyrie Irving diss. Irving, who basically told the world he despised playing with King James by requesting a trade, ended up on the Celtics. Last night Irving was basically swapped for Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder, leaving LeBron with some new pieces.
Kyrie Irving is now a Boston Celtic: https://t.co/9sJ5zuybtb
King James didnt seem too upset about the turn of events, even wishing his former teammate well on Twitter.
That’s the only way to be to the kid! Special talent/guy! Nothing but respect and what a ride it was our 3 years together Young Gode #Filayy https://t.co/wKYmYsmdgG
The Twitter feeds of NBA players around the league was lit. Dwyane Wade, who rumor has it will end up in Cleveland for a reunion with LeBron, chimed in.
Dwight Howard felt the deal is game-changing.
Wooahhhh !! i.e. #GameChangerDeal https://t.co/g9xzXEaBIx
Lou Williams thinks Irving for Thomas is an even swap.
Yikes. Even swap you ask me
Evan Turner felt like the Celtics did Isiah Thomas dirty, considering how he sacrificed for the organization and was the main reason that they won the Eastern regular season title over Cleveland.
Damn dog, my guy I.T. Deserve better. I understand it’s a business but that dude did a lot of the organization. Only going to get better!
