It’s official, Kyrie Irving has finally been traded.
Cleveland and Boston have agreement on deal to send Kyrie Irving to the Celtics for Isaiah Thomas package to Cavs, sources tell The Vertical— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) August 22, 2017
It’s a blockbuster trade that will have ramifications across the league for the rest of summer and next season.
It’s interesting to look back at the George Hill sign and trade rumor now. Would that have been a better haul for the Cleveland Cavaliers?
Can NBA off-season get crazier? Yup. Kyrie Irving’s name now linked to Jazz with George Hill going to Cavs in sign-and-trade, per sources.— Mitch Lawrence (@Mitch_Lawrence) June 30, 2017
In probably his most savage of tweets since the infamous Majin Buu tweet of 2015,
And you got murdered by Goku, Majin buu. https://t.co/SsmMFcg4oV— Rudy Gobert (@rudygobert27) November 19, 2015
Rudy Gobert slayed Twitter once again with the most savage of retweets the world has ever seen.
Rudy always gets the last laugh. Always. Knowing how loyal Isaiah Thomas was to the Celtics only to see them trade him away makes this retweet nuclear.
Another Jazz player stepped into the twitter ring (possibly).

Joe Ingles tweets the coffee emoji pretty regularly, but this has the makings of a very petty tweet and I’m all about it. Is Joe just enjoying his typical cup of Joe (do you think he says cup of Joe?) or is he making a comment about how players are treated in Boston?
One thing’s for sure, social media will be pretty amazing if Gordon Hayward ever gets traded after all of this.
Another day, another Derrick Favors post showing him morphing back into the beast we knew pre injuries. Favors is looking great and ready to prove people wrong. How good are we if Favs wins “Comeback Player of the Year” this upcoming season?
Finally, we at SLC Dunk wanted to congratulate Jonathan Rinehart for becoming the new team president of the Salt Lake City Stars. There’s no doubt he’ll do great work!
