LeBron James Spoke With Koby Altman After Kyrie Irving Trade

CLEVELAND OH- NOVEMBER 03 Isaiah Thomas #4 of the Boston Celtics drives past Kyrie Irving #2 of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the second half at Quicken Loans Arena

So in reality, the Cavaliers and Celtics probably distanced themselves from the rest of the East further, but Boston didn't gain any ground on Cleveland and Cleveland didn't distance themselves from Boston. He's a shoot-first point guard who can create his own shot and space on the floor. And that is it. 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. Irving was selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick after one year at Duke, while Washington's Thomas was drafted as the final pick by the Sacramento Kings.

PAUL GEORGE: After George indicated he planned to leave IN as a free agent next summer, the Pacersr went ahead and dealt the four-time All-Star to the Oklahoma City Thunder this summer for guard Victor Oladipo and forward Damontas Sabonis.

Cleveland is also getting Crowder who is a solid perimeter defender. As it turns out, the Bulls may have been better off waiting out the market in order to get proper value for their star player. He is versatile and strong.

The Celtics visit Cleveland on opening night on October 17. But, there is an argument to be made that he's actually a better fit in Cleveland than Irving is. Croatian seven footer Ante Zizic, according to USAToday, was also included in the trade. They will play key roles to help the team win in the next season.

The Celtics, still benefitting from a blockbuster trade with the Brooklyn Nets a couple of years ago, had plenty of assets to offer for Irving, who came with a hefty price tag.

Thomas is not a Irving.

If anyone knows how Cleveland fans can get when one of their beloved sports stars bolts town, it's LeBron James. Irving, a four-time All-Star, spent six seasons in Cleveland and helped the Cavaliers win the 2016 National Basketball Association title. Tatum doesn't know. He's just a rookie trying to learn the game. Because of the Net's pick, symbolized a potential to land a big man superstar like Anthony Davis. You see? Even the Cavaliers bench improved because of this trade. Irving wanted to be traded.

He was more than just a sidekick to James. Irving was the point guard, and James is a forward. Which is silly, but now he does not have to worry about that any more.

But Pluto is quick to point out that Thomas' inclusion on the team does bring up one concern in particular: his history with hip injuries.
