I almost spat coffee out of my mouth – and I wasn’t even drinking – when I saw who the Celtics got today. They’ve acquired All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving from Cavs for point guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and Brooklyn’s 2018 unprotected first-round pick. Now, first things first, I am not a “green teamer.” I’m actually a huge Kobe fan and now Lonzo Fan ( your future ROY), but growing up here in New England, the Celtics are part of everyday culture no matter what.
So when I saw the rumors, I thought ‘this is going to happen.’ It made too much sense, and for that, I am happy for the Celtics and their fans, I can not be a hater today. Usually, I like to throw out a jab, but today is not the day. I still think they will lose to the Cavs this year, but after LeBron heads out west after this year like the fraud he is, the East will be run by Boston. Great move by Danny. Celtic fans, enjoy it. It’s going to be a fun few years.
PS: I can’t wait to hear that homer Tommy give his first Tommy point, I high-key live for those Tommy points
