Everyone Lost Their Damn Minds Over The Cavs Trading Kyrie Irving To The Celtics

And peep LeBron's reaction.

Published August 23, 2017

Well, damn ... that was fast! After Kyrie Irving requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers last month, the team shook the NBA to its core last night, trading their All-Star point guard to their rival Boston Celtics in exchange for fellow All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 unprotected first-round draft pick. And just like that, Kyrie ain't LeBron James's sidekick anymore. The Celtics are his squad now.

Upon hearing the news, Instagram and Twitter exploded, with everyone losing their damn minds over the big trade. How did King James take the news? Well, check out his response and many other reactions below.

  1. LeBron Could Have Gotten Petty, But The King Took The High Road Responding to The Trade Like This ...

    Nothing but class. But best believe the King is going to go at Kyrie's head come October 17, when the Cavs host Irving and the Celtics in the Land for their 2017-18 season opener.

  2. That being said, Bron's offseason workout videos are about to reach new levels

    Watch out now!

  3. Still, Kyrie probably woke up like this ...

    This is internet gold.

  4. NBA Players Couldn't Believe It

    All reactions are warranted. This trade really came out of nowhere.

  5. And Everyone Heard The News Like ...

    Yes, this reaction sums up our response perfectly, too.
