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.
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.
Watch out now!
This is internet gold.
All reactions are warranted. This trade really came out of nowhere.
Yes, this reaction sums up our response perfectly, too.
We're dead. Done.
Our sentiments exactly.
