Dan Gilbert Was 'Calling The Shots' In Kyrie Irving Trade With Celtics


The first game of the season puts Irving and Thomas on the same court, against their former teams.

The report was puzzling, considering the Celtics had been open about the state of Thomas' hip.

The delayed trade that sent Irving to Boston - the Cavs ultimately received Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, a 2018 first-round pick that originally belonged to Brooklyn and a 2020 second-rounder the Celtics had acquired from Miami - was finalized late Wednesday.

Kyrie Irving is said to be thrilled about joining his new team in Boston.

It remains unclear when Thomas will return to action.

The Boston Celtics used the same press conference to present their two marquee summer signing in Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving on Friday. He re-injured the hip during the Eastern Conference semifinals and eventually missed the final three games of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Irving starred at Duke in 2011 and became the No. 1 pick for Cleveland that year. For those looking at this years win totals, here are some of the best options for betting on them, Bovada is at the top of this and they just updated their odds schedule for this upcoming season.

The Administration "must do better in consistently and unequivocally condemning these groups", Cohn, who is Jewish, said. Tillerson, on Fox News Sunday , said , "We express America's values from the State Department".

"No, I haven't spoken to him", Irving said, as reported by ESPN.

The Celtics have since added a second-round pick to the mix as compensation for Thomas' lingering hip injury.

If the Kyrie Irving trade goes through in its current form, the Celtics are expected to give the Cavs a stiff challenge during next year's postseason. "Maybe I am not going to be back as soon this season as everyone wants me to be, but I'm going to be back, and I'm going to be the same player again". And I say that because I know that the journey continues from this point on, and there will be nothing but love that I have for the organization and what we got to be a part of, because there are some special individuals there.

Huddersfield 0-0 Southampton: Player ratings
Huddersfield extended its unbeaten start to life in the English Premier League with a 0-0 draw at home to Southampton on Saturday. They are not going to relegated or finish in the top four, so to go out of the cup so cheaply does my head in.

Then you can bring in the fact that both of these players joined the team largely because of Brad Stevens, and the two of them look like they are ready to really challenge the king. Irving is exactly the type of player the Celtics need, a proven playoff performer and a victor. Thank you from my whole being for being there as I was a 19-year-old kid coming into the league, to now where I start another step in the journey as a 25- year-old evolving man.
