CLEVELAND, Ohio — I was talking to an NBA executive about the Cleveland Cavaliers situation.
He’s another veteran NBA person who is astounded with Kyrie Irving wanting to be traded. Three trips to the NBA Finals and leading the team in shots per game was not enough to keep Irving content.
Irving averaged 25 points last season, the best of his six-year career.
So it’s not as if Irving had to turn into another Foots Walker or John Bagley just to accommodate LeBron James.

Cavs should not rush Isaiah Thomas onto court, Jeff Schudel says

The blockbuster trade sending guard Kyrie Irving to the Celtics for guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round pick of the Brooklyn Nets was completed on Aug. 30 when the Celtics agreed to add a 2020 second-round pick acquired from Miami in the deal.
Now the question becomes when Thomas will be ready to play, because his injured hip is what held the trade up for a week in the first place.
“I am not damaged,” Thomas told ESPN. “Maybe I’m 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.”
Cavaliers training camp opens on Sept. 25. The first regular season game is Oct. 17 at Quicken Loans Arena against the Celtics. – CLICK HERE to read full story.
