While Gilbert was pointing fingers, his team was simultaneously fielding trade offers for a disgruntled Kyrie Irving, eventually settling on a package from the Boston Celtics built around Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and the Brooklyn Net's first-round pick. "I've never lost a game in the first round before in my career?"
