Celtics Complete Deal for Kyrie, Become Favorites in East
When you give Boston head coach Brad Stevens a four time NBA All-Star, you’re going to like the results. The Celtics with the addition of Kyrie Irving are now a team that can beat LeBron James and Cleveland in the Eastern Conference Finals. Isiah Thomas is a good player but he’s not better than Irving. Cleveland will still compete at a high level with Thomas and Jae Crowder, but the trio of Irving, Gordon Hayward and Al Horford makes Boston a better team than the Cavs. You just wait and see.
