Celtics Stuff Live’s Jon Duke and Justin Poulin take a deep dive into the Kyrie Irving trade, specifically with new reports that the Cavs will be asking for Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum to complete the deal in response to their medical review of Isaiah Thomas' hip injury.

In the second segment, a debate about whether the Nets pick or the Lakers pick is more valuable, and Justin doesn't miss an opportunity to take a shot back at Ray Allen for his comments criticizing the Boston fanbase.
