The opening game of the NBA season, Boston Celtics versus the Cleveland Cavaliers went forward with its share of controversy. Kyrie Irving, now a point guard for the Celtics was facing his former team, the Cavs after his notable request to be traded. In addition LeBron James, forward for the Cavaliers and former teammate has spoken out against Kyrie’s trade request. Along with the controversy, the opening game was not free of injury.
