LeBron James bashes Celtics fans' 'ridiculous' burning of Isaiah Thomas jerseys

Broussard says Thomas' attitude may have played a role in Danny Ainge's decision to move him. "He was going over my film with me and teaching the things that he looks at when he watches film". Irving, a four-time All-Star, spent six seasons in Cleveland and helped the Cavaliers win the 2016 National Basketball Association title.

The question surrounding Thomas concerns his hip. I'm not saying it's definitely true, obviously if you listen to what I said, I said, 'Several executives told me this.' I don't know exactly if that's what was happening there. There's also a player option on a potential third year for Irving, but the point is, you take the younger player with more years left on the contract any day of the week, if the talent matches up.

It was unclear if Ainge meant that Thomas would not be ready when the Cavs open training camp on September 26 or if he wouldn't be in uniform when Cleveland hosts Irving and the Celtics in the season opener October 17. But he was also incredibly productive on the offensive end, averaging 28.9 points per game last season. But it's his postseason performances that jump off the screen and make him a stud. His defensive presence will help the Cavaliers against top scorers including Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors. So, Irving wanted to get out of the shadow of LeBron James and requested to be moved to one of five teams, none of which were the Boston Celtics. Most teams want to do this, although more often than not that pot of gold is just too precious to be traded away. But based on Eastern Conference postseason statistics, it seems James may miss Irving less than one might think. Crowder averaged almost 14 points previous year and shot almost 47% from the field.

Long story short, the kid is a stud.

The Cavs sent Kyrie Irving to Boston for Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round pick.

During James' five-tweet firestorm, he also mentioned players doing what's best when it comes to free agency (maybe trade demands too) and the double standard that now exists, as Gordon Hayward had to deal with the same backlash after signing with the Celtics earlier this summer.

But does the Irving acquisition put the Celtics over the top?
