Irving heading to Celtics, Cavaliers to get Thomas

The Cavs were waiting for the right opportunity to give up one of their star players, and now they have gotten what they need.

If you're not already hyped, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Celtics are playing opening night, too. "From the moment we won the 2011 National Basketball Association lottery that put us in position to draft Kyrie to the "The Shot" that sealed our first National Basketball Association championship and all of the electrifying play that made him a joy to watch, "excitement" was always in the air when it came to Kyrie Irving". Boston views Irving in high esteem, while the Cavaliers get a handful of long-term pieces and the financial flexibility that comes with Thomas' contract.

US State Department Expands Mexico Travel Warning
It also prohibits personal travel to all impacted areas by USA government personnel and their families. But the department does suggest that citizens traveling to Mexico "defer non-essential travel".

I have seen a lot of people saying Cleveland won this trade in a landslide and we will never actually know until years down the road, but I believe Boston will win out in the long-term.

According to Shams Charania this trade sends Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics, in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets 2018 first round pick, which is unprotected. Trading Irving was smart for the Cavs, as the move rids the team of any uncomfortable circumstances ahead of the new season. "At the same time, a very exciting time (to add) one of the best offensive players in the league". The cover shows Irving in a Cavaliers uniform going in for a layup, but the image is no longer accurate. Irving is having a "done that" moment, and wants something new. Apparently, the No.2 was not available since legendary Celtics coach and retired general manager Red Auerbach had the number before. In the possession of the head coach "Celtics" brad Stevens now three players level Match all-stars - point guard Kyrie Irving, forward Gordon Hayward and center al Horford. The 25-year-old #Point Guard just needs to climb his ladder with the Celtics. They still hold potential top five picks in the 2018 Lakers and 2019 Kings picks, who turn to the Sixers if they fall in the top slot. Thomas has been outspoken in his desire to receive a max contract, and there would have no doubt been plenty of unwanted attention about that for the Celtics to deal with.
