So Robin finally got traded. The sidekick will now be the best player on the best team in the eastern conference. Kyrie Irving’s trade which went from non-existent to a done deal in what felt like ten minutes. It was actually about an hour and a half but pretty much the same thing. This, of course, set the Twitter world on fire and prompted some incredible responses, as only twitter knows how. Here are my personal favorites,

Danny seems more like a chardonnay guy.
Danny Ainge: “We traded Avery Bradley.”
The masses: “WHO WILL GUARD KYRIE?”
Ainge: “Hold my non-alcoholic beverage."

One last flat earth joke, cause that type of idiocy might get a pass in Cleveland, but sure won’t in Boston.
Boston reporter: "Hello, I'm from the Globe."
Kyrie: "Excuse me?"
