If he messed up, it was not his fault.
On Wednesday the company announced that they will eventually release a version of National Basketball Association 2K18 featuring Kyrie Irving in his no. 11 Celtics jersey. He is generally regarded as a player with a great upside. And that is it.
Thomas is an excellent scorer, proving to be the third-best in the league after Russell Westbrook and James Harden last season, but his defensive woes have become a complete liability - an area Cleveland had been hoping to improve. Sure Irving is a four-time All Star, but we are not done yet.
In exchange the Cavaliers received Crowder and Thomas - the two-time All-Star who won hearts in Boston with a big game that belied his small stature and his determination to pursue his playoff dream even after the sudden death of his sister in a road accident. He is versatile and strong.
Jae Crowder adds to that as both a valuable two-way wing and somebody who could fetch a decent return on the open market, depending on the route Cleveland decides to take. Croatian seven footer Ante Zizic, according to USAToday, was also included in the trade.
Iraqi forces close in on ISIL-held Tal Afar
The Iraqi army seized control of Tal Rihal, Jabbara, Hussein Idris, al-Mulla and al-Majeed villages, said Lt. The UN expects more and more civilians to flee the area as the battles begin.
He later continued his rant: "If these guys weren't good, u guys would be the first to say "get them up out of here.' Man beat it!"
Boston was reluctant to part with the Nets' pick, which should be high. Next years draft. And now, Cleveland gets that pick. The team would then give their trade partner a different draft pick (perhaps second-rounders, or a future pick) instead. While Thomas has the range, he is in the same category as a Nate Robinson, Dana Barrows, Muggsy Bogues, or Spud Webb.
LeBron James is fired up over the idea of fans burning a player's jersey, and he let it be known in a Twitter rant on Thursday. Last season, Thomas routinely wore the "Kobe AD" Nike shoe and when his sister tragically passed away in a auto crash in April, Bryant reached out to the 2-time All-Star. Tatum doesn't know. He's just a rookie trying to learn the game. The Nets top pick. What's that trade with the Cavaliers looking like? Irving wanted to be traded. The question will be if he can play off the ball and put up points with the ball being in LeBron James' hands? Irving was the point guard, and James is a forward.
"It was just like, 'wow, ' just like, 'OK", James said at the time.
