Isiah Thomas: Kyrie Irving Can Win Title

Yep, that’s Hall of Famer, two-time NBA champion, NBA Finals MVP and former Detroit Pistons point guard Isiah Thomas who is awed by (Kyrie) Irving. Of course, Thomas is also the oft-criticized former New York Knicks coach and president, but that’s for another story.

This is the one where Thomas – one of the best scoring point guards to play the game – describes his affection for Irving, and proclaims that if any small player can lead a team to an NBA title in this land of big men, Irving can.

“He is definitely going against the grain – a small man trying to win in a big man’s league,” Thomas said. “But if anybody can do it, I believe he’s the one guy that is capable of doing it.”

Cavaliers guard Kevin Porter Jr. is expected to be traded or released following an outburst Friday in the Cavs locker room, The Athletic has learned from several sources with direct knowledge of the events.

Porter, 20, who has not played this season due to personal issues, grew angry when he entered the locker room and realized the team gave his old locker to Taurean Prince, who was acquired in a blockbuster trade Wednesday.

Sources said Porter, whose locker was moved to the wall where the younger, end-of-bench players reside, began yelling and at one point threw food.
