Kids have been asking all over the Internet: Why did Kyrie Irving switch to the Boston Celtics? Kyrie Irving switched to the Boston Celtics because he wanted to do the best for him. On July 17th Kyrie Irving (25 years old) requested of Dan Gilbert, the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, that he was thinking about being traded to the Boston Celtics. This probably blew Dan Gilbert’s mind.
On August 22nd, according ESPN:Lies, Sports and Scores, the breaking news went wild about how it was official that Kyrie Irving was being traded and Isaiah Thomas is now on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Even with Thomas’s hip injury, the Cavaliers still accepted the fact that Thomas was going to be their new teammate instead of Kyrie. They were not worried about Thomas’s injury. But this changed after Thomas went in for his physical. When Thomas came back he said that he knew it was not going to be a long term injury for his case.
Wow! If you thought that was a crazy roller coaster, then you might not make it through the this one. Not only are Isaiah and Kyrie being traded to different teams, but Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic are being traded as well. The teachers and parents out there have always said to finish what you start. We’ll they should try to actually start finishing what they start.
To get a guy like Irving on your team, an amazing offensive player on any team he is on, you’ve got to pay the bills for a guy who has that much skills. Irving has three more years and $60 million left on his contract, but he can opt out of the year before the 2019-20 season if he wanted too.
Isaiah Thomas (28 years old) led the Boston Celtics to the best record in the Eastern Conference last season, averaging 28.9 points and 5.9 assists over 33.8 minutes per game during the regular season. With all of that information, you are probably thinking: Why would the Celtics give away their star player for Kyrie Irving?
The journalism club from NSMS is hoping that all of these factual assumptions and reasonable questions help you learn more about Kyrie and Isaiah.
