A night after having his worst display of the season, posting 9 points on 4-14 shooting with 5 TOs in a loss to Jrue and the Sixers, the Cavs announced Kyrie Irving will be out for a month with a broken finger. Apparently he sustained the injury against Dallas on Saturday, thinking it was only a bruise before playing the Sixers.
Anybody with half a brain can see through the PR spin on this one - Kyrie doesn't think Jrue is worth shit and thought he could outplay him on 9 fingers. A few absurd ankle-breaking dribbles aside, Kyrie was thoroughly outplayed by the PG on the rise in South Philadelphia (14 & 9, with only 2 TOs(!)).
Conspiracy theories aside, I hope Uncle Drew is back soon. One of my favorite players to watch, and you could tell something wasn't right last night; he had an all-around awful game, and you don't see that from him. Time to take the reigns, Varejao!
