Making Sense of The Kyrie Irving Isaiah Thomas Debacle

Written by 

Justin Poulin and Jon Duke give their takes on the Kyrie Isaiah trade drama. 

Jon Duke calls Cleveland’s demands crazy! Justin begins to rationalize trading Isaiah by noting his injury and the potential issues resigning him. The Celtics need to maximize each of Gordon Hayward’s prime years and Isaiah’s hip injury could become problematic to that.

Can Kyrie Irving be a magnet for other free agents? He is part of Team USA and extremely popular among players and the national fan base. Are there rumors that Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward have expressed interest in playing together?

Is new Cavs GM Koby Altman feeding information to Adrian Wojnarowski? Is Altman as a rookie GM already playing shady games? The national media seems to feel Cleveland should take the deal they have agreed to.

Justin says the Cavaliers need to realize just how valuable the 2018 Nets pick is given the talent at the top of this year’s draft. The Celtics need to stand pat and not be willing to give up more than a second round pick or two. Jon Agrees, the Celtics should sit still.

Unfortunately, Isaiah Thomas is taking a beating in all of this. After a tremendous season, Isaiah is now forced to go into his contract year following a summer spotlight on the health of his hip.

What’s more valuable the 2018 Net’s pick or the 2018 Lakers / 2019 Kings pick? Justin and Jon discuss.

Justin goes on to rag on Ray Allen, for his latest social media comments. Ray Allen continues to show he is bitter over the criticisms he continues to take for leaving Boston for Miami.

Well is this trade gonna happen or not? Listen to Justin and Jon as they speculate!
