Kyrie Irving asked if it still means something to go back to Cleveland: “No, not at all.”

Irving, 27, played for the Cavs for the first six seasons of his career. In that span, the All-Star guard earned multiple awards, went to the NBA Finals three times and played a huge part in capturing the franchise’s 2016 championship.
Despite all that success, the 6-foot-3 guard still wanted more independence and requested a trade in the summer of 2017.
While the Cavs haven’t retained most of the players in the Irving deal, they are very pleased with Sexton’s production. The 20-year-old is putting up 16.2 points and and 3.0 rebounds per game this season.
Meanwhile, the former Rookie of the Year award winner and Celtics are having a messy season.
Marred by injuries, little chemistry and a lack of strong leadership by Irving, the franchise has struggled to be one of the league’s best teams this year, despite a very talented roster.
Irving is putting up 23.8 points, 7.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds a game this season.
