The Eastern Conference was shaken up between powers on Tuesday night.

Kyrie Irving got his wish as Cleveland traded the star guard to Boston for fellow star Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round draft pick (see story).

The blockbuster trade sure had Twitter abuzz. Here is some reaction from current and former Sixers, NBA players and media outlets.
