Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert credited the Kyrie Irving trade last August as being 1 of 3 keys to the team’s run to the NBA Finals.

Gilbert made the comment in a series of 3 tweets sent out prior to Game 1 against Golden State in Oakland Thursday night.

Gilbert's Cavs enter the 2018 Finals as one of the largest underdogs in history, and make no mistake about it, not having a dynamic player like Irving alongside LeBron James is a big reason why.
