Kyrie Irving: 'I can't wait to maximize my potential' with Celtics

Despite just having executed the Kyrie Irving trade, the Cleveland Cavaliers still find themselves in a position where they need to make a decision, and it is one that will greatly influence seasons to come.

Comparing Thomas to Irving, Thomas scored more, shot better, and overall performed at a higher level with a player efficiency rating of 26.5, compared to Irving's 23.0.

The pick could present the Cavaliers with an opportunity to land a young player who may turn into the future face of the franchise. What caused this change in events? Thomas re-aggravated the injury in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Washington Wizards and the team eventually shut him down two games into the Conference Finals. The physical immediately raised concerns about his hip, and team officials reportedly sought an additional asset before the deal is finalized.


National Basketball Association 2K players will finally get to test out Irving and fellow new Celtic Gordon Hayward when the popular video game is released on September 15.

Thomas put his heart into the Boston Celtics, playing until the very end of every game and even playing in playoff games right after the tragic passing of his sister.
