The Celtics traded Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 first round pick while they were able to hold on to the 2017 ACC All-Freshman team selection.

"His age is a great fit", Celtics president Danny Ainge said of Irving in a conference call hours after the trade went down. Crowder might as well start studying tape of Golden State forward Kevin Durant now, because if the Warriors and Cavs meet for a fourth straight Finals it will be Crowder's job to cover Durant.

Sam Presti is still in house though so we're good Thunder Nation. While this does not mean Crowder is a better player than Thomas, it's an interesting measure of success beyond the basic plus-minus counting stat.
Instead of lighting fire to the jersey as many in Cleveland did when James left the team in 2010 for the Miami Heat, Hartman dropped a hand-written note on top of the jersey.
