An MRI on Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving Friday revealed a fractured left kneecap and is expected to miss a minimum of 3-4 months after he undergoes surgery in the near future according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.
I think everyone probably felt Irving would ultimately end up missing the remainder of the series once it happened but know we’re looking at an injury that can impact him into next season and quite possibly take him through the first few months of the year.
Some can hold out hope of LeBron James putting forth King-like performances in these finals and somehow find a way to win this championship, but asking LeBron to do that against these Golden State Warriors is like asking J.R. Smith to become an efficient, smart player.
It’s just not going to happen.
