It's official: Kyrie Irving's leaving the Cavs for the Celtics. Find out how LeBron took the news, plus how Dwyane Wade and his former Heat teammates are living it up on couples' vacay.

It's been real.
Meanwhile, there's rumblings that Bron's bestie and former Heat teammate Dwyane Wade could be headed to the Cavs in a year or so. In the meantime, D-Wade and wife Gabby Union are living it up in Mykonos with their former Heat family, partying till 6am every night.
