NBA fans know there was a big trade that was finalized yesterday. One time first pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kyrie Irving, is now a Boston Celtic. As the NBA 2K18 cover athlete, he's going to be sporting a new uniform and today, he showed off his new look on Instagram.
As a Cleveland Cavaliers fan, I think the Cavs got a big haul for Irving. There were times he frustrated fans with his hero ball tactic, but he was the one that hit the three over Stephen Curry to bring Cleveland its first championship in 52 years. For that, I'll be forever grateful.
But what the Cavs got in return addressed both the present and the future. They got two good talents, if Isaiah Thomas is healthy for the playoffs. Jae Crowder is a great player to D up Golden State. And that Brooklyn pick can be used to bring another player in should LeBron James commits or it can be used to jump start a new rebuild since the Cavs were short on picks after this year. While it was tough to see Irving go, the trade was 100% a fleecing of the Boston Celtics.
September 19th will be when you can pick up NBA 2K18 with Boston Celtic, Kyrie Irving on the cover. It's gonna be a hell of an NBA season.
