Celtics formally introduce Kyrie Irving

The Cavs made Irving the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft but never came close to making the playoffs in his first three seasons in Cleveland. The Cavaliers put the brief hault on the trade because they were unaware of the severity of Thomas' injury.

The Boston Celtics sent the Cleveland Cavaliers a 2020 second-round draft pick to complete the blockbuster trade that sent four-time All-Star guard Kyrie Irving to the Celtics, the Cavaliers confirmed Wednesday night.

"There are no other ulterior reasons other than being happy and to be somewhere you feel like it's an environment that's conducive for you maximizing your potential", said Irving, who is drawn to Boston by coach Brad Stevens as much as anything, league sources told ESPN. The main piece Cleveland got in return was diminutive point guard Isaiah Thomas.

The Boston Celtics will formally introduce their two summer All-Star acquisitions in Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward on Friday morning at TD Garden.

Lions give QB Matthew Stafford 5-year contract worth reported $135 million
Stafford's market-setting contract could also have ramifications for the Patriots' future financial decisions at quarterback . Since then, the eight-year veteran has posted over 30,000 passing yards, 187 touchdowns and 108 interceptions.

"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".

The Celtics also won the trade because of Thomas' hip injury in last year's Eastern Conference finals. And you watch, you ask a lot of the great players, 'What does it take to be great?' I've had the unique opportunity to play with one of the greats and it was awesome.

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. "I just want to talk about what I can control, and I know that this [hip] won't be a problem into the future".

In Boston, Irving receives the ideal opportunity to showcase his talent which has led him to 4 NBA All-Star appearances (2013-2015, 2017), an All-Star MVP (2014), Rookie of the Year honors (2012), and NBA Champion (2016).

The two All-Stars were welcomed today at a press conference, which included plenty of questions about Kyrie's six seasons in Cleveland, specifically the years with LeBron James and his decision to request a trade.

Kyrie Irving made certain not to directly mention LeBron James nor the National Basketball Association title title-drought the two ended together in Cleveland in his farewell video to Cleveland Cavaliers fans.

If he leaves, the Cavs have the first-round pick — maybe even the top pick overall — they got from Boston to help them rebuild.
