Default Kyrie tired of tanking/losing?

http://www.ohio.com/blogs/cleveland-...sEnabled=false

CLEVELAND: The most riveting part of the night should have been the game’s final play, when Kyrie Irving backed down Norris Cole in the final seconds and was stripped in what became a 96-95 Miami Heat victory.

"But Irving’s peculiar behavior after the game quickly became just as interesting as another loss in a season filled with them. While the rest of the players lined up to hand selected fans their jerseys and shoes as part of Fan Appreciation Night, Irving immediately sprinted off the court at the buzzer and into the locker room. Irving’s quick exit left a staff member to scramble back to the locker room and gather a jersey and pair of Irving’s shoes to be handed out by someone else.

Coach Byron Scott said he thought Irving was injured on the game’s final play and a team spokesman announced in the locker room just prior to Irving meeting with reporters that he had suffered a bruised right heel. Irving acted surprised upon hearing that.

“That’s what I have? Oh, when was someone going to tell me that?” Irving said. “I’m hurt again? Damn. How long am I going to be out, 4 to 6 weeks?”



So much for Bron return to the cavs To be fair Irving hasn't really looked engaged in his last few games. Attitude and Morale isn't there

It may be hard to be motivated in tanking seasons

Dion Waiters just needs to develop. Then they'll be a beastly backcourt. but I wouldn't be too thrilled about a tanking season as well.

Came in here expecting nothing and that's probably what this is in the long run but that's really strange. So Scott told reporters he was hurt and Irving clearly is ok? communication problems at the very least.

He's the #1 option going into his 3rd season on a promising young team with loads of cap space.

He's fine.

The implications are dastardly. I'm taking this as "maybe Irving hasn't been as injured as the team has made him out to be... In fact, the team likely has sat him many times just to tank away."

He's always welcome to play in a big market franchise that only thinks about winning championship.

The Cavs are only thinking about tanking right now, which is understandable

For now, he's a 2014 free agent, and many teams have clean slate.

Does he want to tank for the next 3-4 years, or does he want to contend for a title on a different team for the next 3-4 years.

He should leave Cleveland asap.

If they couldnt get a championship with the best player in the game today, what makes anyone think Kyrie has a shot AND hes the PG which makes it so much harder.
