This past offseason, the Boston Celtics revamped their roster in order to be the last team standing in the East and ultimately win a championship, and by doing so, they weakened the Cavaliers.

Cleveland beat Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals last season, but the Celtics traded for Kyrie Irving in the offseason and he's led the way with Gordon Hayward out.

How does one find out about such a league-altering trade, though?  Sunday night, Irving's co-star in the 'Uncle Drew' movie Lil Rel Howery revealed how Irving found out about the trade and how he reacted to it.

So, there you have it. Irving found out about the trade while on the set of Uncle Drew and he was happy once he found out, which is understandable considering all of the drama that went down before the trade was completed. It was rumoured that there was friction between Irving and LeBron and once those rumours start, they don't stop and only get worse, so you can only imagine the sense of relief Kyrie must have felt once he was finally traded.

The trade worked out for the Celtics as they are in second place in the East (two games back of Toronto) and it somewhat worked out for the Cavs as they traded the players they got from Boston and got younger before the deadline.

Plus, LeBron and Kyrie are still friends, so it's all good!
