Irving went viral after his flat Earth theory made waves on social media. Maybe it’s what he wanted all along.
Kyrie Irving famously said he believes the Earth is flat. We know that spurred on a never-ending meme.
Good morning. We have that and more in Thursday’s NBA newsletter.
The most annoying trade delay in NBA history has ended peacefully. The Cavaliers were trying to pry more assets out of the Celtics' hands after discovering that Isaiah Thomas' hip might be in worse shape than Boston led on. The Celtics didn't really flinch. So eventually, the Cs conceded a future second-round pick to put the deal to bed. The deal is closed.
The Pacers asked the NBA to look into Los Angeles’ contact with George. They found something.
The NBA fined the Los Angeles Lakers $500,000 on Thursday for violating the league’s anti-tampering rules. The fine appears to be a result of the investigation into Los Angeles’ contact with Paul George while he was under contract with the Indiana Pacers.

The Cavaliers and Celtics will likely soon finalize a blockbuster trade that sends Kyrie Irving to Boston. According to ESPN’s Zach Lowe, landing Irving could be the the precursor to hooking a bigger fish in the future: Anthony Davis.

The Cleveland Cavaliers still need to make a decision on whether to accept the Boston Celtics’ trade of an injured Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and the Brooklyn Nets’ unprotected 2018 first-round pick for Kyrie Irving.

involved could have figured how different this one death would be.Read more ...

As I flew out of Manila yesterday morning I noticed that it happened to be a clear day over most of the NCR, and what big clouds there were weren’t big enough to cover everything. So our PAL Airbus A330 flew around the giant clouds and in between them you could catch a glimpse of considerable sections of Metro Manila. My younger brother seated behind me pointed out UP Diliman - and I marveled at the way the campus was green as seen from the air and at how it was laid out.Read more ...
