Who is the winner Cavs or Celtics

Kyrie Irving trade truly historic

via Cavaliers-Celtics deal first offseason trade involving players who just met in NBA Finals or conference finals — ProBasketballTalk

In retrospect both teams did well for themselves, the Celtics got the superstar guard and difference maker in Kyrie Irving however they gave up a lot especially considering they held all the leverage. The Cavaliers got a guard who is not as good as Irving put certainly is more than serviceable and an enforcer which they sorely needed in Jae Crowder. The wildcard however is No. 1 pick in next years draft which will be a high pick if not the overall first pick in the draft. They can hold on to it or use it in combination with another asset to make a trade for high level player. We won’t know the winner for sure until the season starts and we see them actually play

AS an aside the Celtics are without Kelly Olynick and Avery Bradly who they lost through free agency The loss of Bradly really hurts.
