Denver Nuggets: Three trades to bring Kyrie Irving to Denver

Throughout the regular season, much was made about where James will go next due to a player option in his contract and speculation has only increased following the Warriors' sweep of the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals last week. And, you know, that time will arise and when it does, I think I'll have a better, clear, concise, answer for a lot of people that are going to ask.

The Boston Celtics had high hopes entering the 2017-18 season but everything changed on opening night when star free agent acquisition Gordon Hayward was lost for the season with a gruesome leg injury just minutes into the new season.

Irving was searching for a home and it seemed like he found it in Boston. Boston would take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers but the Celtics would drop the final two games of the series.

It's understandable, with the quote coming just a week after Yahoo Sports' Chris Mannix reported that the Celtics are scared that Irving could bolt for the New York Knicks when he hits free agency next summer (as laughable as that is, Irving has been connected to the Knicks in the past). Obviously, you go to Boston and you become the face of the franchise.

I am here to see it. "I got so many death threats", Rodman said, in tears. "From Day 1. And today is a great day for everybody-Singapore, Tokyo, China-it's a great day".

Which team will LeBron James play for next season? He also won't commit to re-signing with Boston. The big draft year for the Celtics could be next season, as they own the Philadelphia 76ers' (top 1 protected) or Sacramento Kings' (top 1 protected) pick, the Memphis Grizzlies (if it falls outside the top 8) and the Los Angeles Clippers pick (if it falls outside the top 14). Rozier can't be Irving's one-for-one replacement. How can Irving feel good about his long-term viability on a team that tosses him into every trade offer?

However, Ainge would have to understand the risks of this move, especially when offering a package including Hayward.

The assumption when Irving joined the Celtics was that he'd be around for years while the team tried to build a dynasty. After that, he has the option to opt out of his deal and test the waters of free agency for the first time in his career. If James were to sign on with the C's, it's tough to imagine any scenario in which the green doesn't reach the NBA Finals next season and the following campaigns to come.
