So not only did the Cavs blow up their roster on Thursday, Twitter also blew up with reactions.
In case you missed it, here's a breakdown of the day's trades:

Most were sarcastic comments about half the team being traded.

Some are in favor of the trades and support the new Cavs.
And just like that the @cavs s are easily the favorites in the east and have a roster built to beat the @warriors in the finals w/ Rodney Hood, George Hill, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr, LBJ, Tristan T and company. @espn @SportsCenter

#Cavs completely detonated the roster & kept the Brooklyn pick. It's been a good day for the wine and gold

In addition to improving the team--significantly--Cleveland has sent a clear message to LeBron that they will spend money. Plus: They still have the Brooklyn pick.

Others are...let's say, less than pleased.
*Cavs trade Kyrie for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, and Ante Zizic
*Cavs trade IT and Crowder for Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance, and Rodney Hood
