LeBron: 'It's a business ... There's no shade on anybody' after trades

Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving

After the game, James said, "It was a good start". The Cavs announced the deal shortly before the deadline passed. It's unlikely he'll be any more willing to delve into the topic at that point.

Pierce watched the game from a baseline seat, under the basket where the Celtics scored 42 points in the fourth quarter of Game 6 of the finals to clinch their 17th National Basketball Association championship. "With the window we have with LeBron and with this team, we figured it was time to do something to reenergize the group, but also to have sustainability going into the future". But it sounds like Hill will indeed be the new point guard, and, for the time being, both J.R. Smith and Hood will start. Monroe won't have to do too much for the Celtics on any given night, but anything that he can do throughout the rest of the season will definitely help out the Celtics.

Stevens had more pressing concerns, including how to integrate Monroe into the lineup. In doing so, they'll find themselves in the driver's seat once again out East, and potentially punching their ticket to a fourth straight NBA Finals. However, with the deadline hours away, James put together a 37-point, 15-assist, 10-rebound game on Wednesday that he capped with a buzzer-beating shot in overtime to edge Minnesota.

"More so it's going to be a walk-through, just trying to teach the new guys the plays and what we're trying to do defensively", he said.

Kyrie Irving and the Celtics staved off a Washington comeback to win in overtime.

Regardless, things couldn't be worse than they were before, and the locker room vibe was obviously reaching the event horizon. He's the Batman, and we got to be all Robins. So we got some hungry guys. "I know it was a good feeling for him to do what he did tonight". "It's just a matter of time".

James didn't want any "shade" to fall on his ex-teammates, so we must draw our own conclusions.

Cleveland completely changed its look - and perhaps its chances of winning a championship this season - Thursday with a stunning sequence of deals.

"I wish it could've been a lot better than it was". "Like I said, I know that's the aspiration they have, getting back to the Eastern Conference finals and beyond". I had so many battles with him when he was in Indiana.

"I like the pieces that we have coming in".

The C's had talked about how they wanted to get into the paint early and often against the Cavs defense early in the game but Boston wound up jacking up 38 3-pointers in the contest, hitting only 10. I mean, [referee] Billy [Kennedy] was behind me.

"I'm exhausted of being traded", he said.

Just like that, the Cavs traded almost half their roster, got younger and maybe put themselves back into contention to make a fourth straight Finals appearance.

Apprised of Morris' comments, Irving wouldn't bite. He made only two of seven free throws, twice missing each of two attempts. Nothing against Markieff. I just don't want to get into the whole whether it was a foul or not.
