The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics shocked just about everyone on Tuesday evening when they decided to swap Kyrie Irving for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a first-round draft pick.

Not only were fans blown away by the blockbuster trade, but NBA players also couldn’t believe what they were seeing and hearing.

After Twitter settled down and everyone digested the blockbuster deal, LeBron James decided to show Irving some love for everything he did for the city of Cleveland with a perfect tweet.

If you’re wondering what he’s referring into in terms of “That’s the only way to be to the kid!”, here’s the video that was attached to the original tweet.

The two didn’t exactly see eye-to-eye over the past few weeks, but now that this mess is behind them they can both move forward and focus on next season.

Irving was selected first overall in the 2011 NBA Draft by Cleveland and averaged 21.6 points, 5.5 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game in 381 games with the Cavaliers.
