It’s well known that James preferred the Cavs not trade Irving, but there was more. Sources close to James, a master of applying leverage, said he was less than impressed by how the Cavs handled reworking the Irving deal once the severity of Thomas’ injury became clear. Had the Cavs backed out, which they considered doing for several days, the Celtics would have been in a tough position. They had already celebrated Irving’s arrival and would have alienated Thomas and Jae Crowder. Adding to the Cavs’ leverage was the nature of Thomas’ hip injury becoming public, thereby further diminishing his trade value and putting Boston in an even tighter spot if the deal fell through. When the dust settled, the fact that Cleveland got only a second-round pick after pausing the deal — and not an additional first-rounder or young player such as Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown or Terry Rozier — didn’t just disappoint James as a basketball player. It disappointed him as a businessman. All this before Thomas took a single dribble.

That eagerness to teach was the first sign of Irving’s desire to be a leader for the Celtics. Now, more than three quarters of the way through his first campaign with the team, it’s evident that his leadership has had a profound impact on the group. “He’s been our leader from the beginning of the year,” backup point guard Terry Rozier said following Wednesday afternoon’s practice at Target Center in Minneapolis. “He’s vocal and leads by example, so he’s just a great guy to be around off the court and on the court.”
