The most surprising deal of the summer has finally been concluded. Kyrie Irving is the newest member of the Boston Celtics and Isiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, a highly coveted unprotected 1st round pick in next year’s NBA Draft, and a 2020 2nd round pick are headed to Cleveland in a blockbuster that might just end up benefiting both Eastern Conference contenders. Kyrie surprised everyone with his trade request to Cavaliers ownership this summer after three straight NBA Finals appearances and one NBA Championship under his belt, but Kyrie wanted to show off his Mamba Mentality and lead a team without the help of LeBron James. Kyrie took to Instagram to show how excited he is to join the legendary Boston franchise with an updated trailer for NBA 2K18 in which he serves as the cover athlete. In the trailer, Kyrie isn’t just decked out in white and green but also teases a new Nike Kyrie 3 “Celtics” Home PE.
