Dan Gilbert says he thinks Kyrie Irving will leave Celtics

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert traded Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics in August of 2017, but Gilbert doesn’t expect Irving to re-up with the Celtics in free agency this summer, and thinks that the Cavs did pretty well for themselves in the trade, all things considered.

“I don’t know, but I think Kyrie will leave Boston,” Gilbert said, via cleveland.com. “We could have ended up with nothing. Looking back after all the moves Koby [Altman] made, we killed it in that trade.”

Irving has a player option worth more than $21 million for the ’19-20 season that he is expected to decline in favor or unrestricted free agency this summer, though he didn’t cheap nba jerseys
do himself any favors this past season.
According to a report from Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, several would-be suitors of Irving are much more wary of signing him following his underwhelming 2018-19 campaign.

Irving struggled with his role as a leader for the Celtics throughout the regular season, and then underperformed in the postseason as the Celtics were eliminated by the Milwaukee Bucks in five games in the Eastern Conference semifinals. However, despite the struggles, the Celtics are still hoping that Irving remains in Boston long-term.

David Robinson proud of how Spurs bounced back after Kawhi ‘nightmare’

SAN ANTONIO – Spurs legend David Robinson on Thursday praised the franchise for bouncing back from the drama-filled 2017-18 season and the loss of cornerstone player Kawhi Leonard that followed it.

“That was tough,” Robinson said. “Obviously, the whole Kawhi situation was kind of a nightmare situation for us, right? He was the perfect guy to follow Tim (Duncan), and to see that he really wasn’t happy here was surprising and disappointing and all of that. It felt like we were having to re-start our gears a little bit.”

Speaking at an event honoring military families at cheap nba jerseys
Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston sponsored by Johnsonville Sausage, Robinson suggested the Spurs have a bright future despite their first-round playoff loss this season to the Denver Nuggets.

The Spurs sent Leonard to the Toronto Raptors last summer after the disgruntled forward asked for a trade following an injury-marred season in which he played in just nine games and reportedly clashed with the team over his rehabilitation from a mysterious quad ailment.
