Breaking down the Boston Celtics acquisition of Kyrie Irving

Boston Celtics

No one, that's who. The deal became official on Tuesday night, as it was announced that the Cleveland Cavaliers sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics [VIDEO]in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and Brooklyn's 2018 first round pick.

Of course, this is the kind of dream trade that the Suns have been looking to make for the past two years: acquire a young player or first round pick by taking on terrible contracts. "The major sticking point was Tatum and Boston was able to get the man they wanted for weeks without giving up Tatum, Jaylen Brown or Marcus Smart".

This is not the first time that a cover athlete for a sports video game was traded before the season started. There wasn't a consensus reaction to the move, with some excited, some not so thrilled with all they gave up, and a select few that were dumb enough to burn Isaiah Thomas jerseys for an unknown reason. Irving has the chance to be the missing piece that the Celtics have been looking for, and he knows it.

But again, was this "megatrade" worth it for Boston? "I think Cleveland won the deal, and (one executive) in particular felt that Boston did, and he kind of referenced what he believed the situation was with Isaiah there and that he had problems with his teammates". Whether you Boston fans out there will admit or not, (for this next season) we all know that this trade nearly guarantees a fourth year in a row of a Warriors and Cavaliers NBA Finals.

"Once you have a player like Irving, who says he doesn't want to play with LeBron James...says he wants to be the focal point of a team...you got to trade him somewhere, because basketball is a 'chemistry sport, '" he said.

The Indians reported Miller's injury as re-aggravated right patellar tendinitis. Seven of the Red Sox' games in the coming 10 days will be on the road.

The Cavaliers have Derrick Rose to be the point guard if Thomas is unable to play, but what will Rose's role be when Thomas returns?

Spears of The Undefeated reported that Cavaliers' general manager Koby Altman called the Warriors about a blockbuster trade.

With all the junk that you can find on Twitter - and you can find a whole lot of it - we make one kid's wiseass a tweet a national story.

To make that kind of a trade work while re-signing both LeBron and Thomas, the Cavaliers would need to drop some salary to pull it all together, and if they wanted to lose out on a player (or two) with big contracts, the Suns could be the flawless team tohelp make it happen, acquiring the pick in return.

So yeah, this megatrade revived the offseason for now, but if we look into the near future, does Boston really come out on top?
