The NBA is easily the best professional sports league in the United States. Was that ever up for debate?
After this offseason, it certainly is not. That also appears to be the opinion of several NBA players after Tuesday’s trade between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers saw Kyrie Irving head east and Isaiah Thomas pair up with LeBron James.
It is crazy to think that the two best teams in the Eastern Conference decided to swap star point guards with each other, and that is just the latest in a series of wild events here in the summer of 2017.
What more could you ask for?
Here’s how the NBA responded to the news of the trade between the Celtics and the Cavaliers on social media.
I think this was a great trade for both teams!! Irving Hayward Brown & the young kid from duke… https://t.co/3tXEbZOgHU
