@AdamZagoria: Hearing via source the Kyrie Irving injury is 'serious' and he will miss the remainder of the series. Tough blow for him & the Cavs.

even the limited Kyrie, and the Cavs were done.

Could end up a sweep at this point.

Hate to hear this but that look on his face last night told the story. Dude was outstanding on both ends after he shook off the rust. This matchup suddenly looks like the 89 Pistons/Lakers finals.

Ugh, that's brutal. Doesn't really change the projection of the series (now it's probably gonna end in a sweep instead of maybe a 5-6 game series for Golden State).

I guess the only bright side was that this could've been much worse. When he went down, I thought that he might've torn his ACL, and if that were the case, he might've missed next season too.

Hopefully he has a speedy recovery and comes back 100%.

I wonder what's next for the Cavs? Does Love return? Does Lebron even return? So many injuries from Varajao to Irving. Lebron was blessed with healthier players in Miami. Hope Kyrie gets better because he is a prolific three point shooter and scorer. I think he might be the best pure shooting PG in the East.

"Asked specifically if that meant he wanted to be back in Cleveland next season, Love said, "Yes. I want to win."

Yes, it's serious because Love and Irving were known to miss games from time to time. I would leave myself since legacy wouldn't mean much to me. Think about it? No bench, rough season, and a coach that is not the brightest in the world. Love could easily get a bigger role and a max deal with another team because he is an elite rebounder and great offensive threat. Lebron could go to LA, Houston, or Chicago. Miami wouldn't be out of the mix, but probably a dark horse at best.

Injury was not directly related to his previous injury. But for the Cavs to win, they are going to have to play relentless defense and keep it under 100 points for sure, maybe under 95 or 90 a game for golden state. You can pencil LeBron in for 30+ a night now. But they really need Shump to get 10-15, JR to get 20+, TT to get 10+, Moz to get 10+, then Delly to get some points, James Jones to hit some threes.

Wade wasn't injury prone IMO. McGrady was injury prone, Grant Hill, Yao, McDyess, and now Rose. Those are the types of names I think of as injury prone.

Wade was more like Shaq, who I believe most don't consider in that category either.

I feel bad for LeBron. This is why the NBA needs to realign the playoff seedings. 1 should play 16, 2 should play15, and so forth. LeBron is going to have a two and four record in the final when he shouldn't have been there 4 times. I want to see the best team play for the championship. Not a team that got there because they didn't face anybody that was good. This Cavs team would've lost in the first round to any team in the west 1 through 7. They don't belong here.

This is a concept I try to instill in people but no one seems to understand.

No, if he hits that three the entire game changes course, and maybe they just end up getting blown out.

It would have been a little different roster. Gasol would have came to miami, so maybe we don't sign Whiteside and trade for the Dragon.

But don't worry, Pat is going to get another star small forward.

A full year of Dragic with Bosh & Whiteside is going to be too much for most East teams. We will have an up tempo offense too (Deng will have to not opt-in, or be traded for that to happen though).

Gtfo with that "ram his knee" crap.
Players inadvertently bang knees during basketball games. I doubt Klay or anyone is trying to ram a knee at full game speed... It would be a stupid defensive move.

I don't know if Kyrie is injury-prone, but playing with injuries (like knee tendinitis) very much increases the chances of further injury. Kyrie's knee was just an injury waiting to happen, and Blatt gambled badly by playing him 44 minutes in his first game back.

Delly is not considered a dirty player because he dives for balls, it's because he has dove at knees and other teams/fans very much view him as a dirty player. Klay was just playing defense, nobody would ever mistake that for a dirty play.

I never said Klay did it on purpose i said he rammed his knee into Kyrie's which he did unintentionally all i said is the injury doesn't happen if that doesn't occur.

so your suggestion is that anytime there is a possibility of bumping knees with another player-... the guy should back off or let the guy go? and if the contact was that much- wouldnt klay react to it as well?- he hit his knee too

lol, please

It really sucks for him to go down like this as a player, and I am a big Kyrie fan so it sucks to see him not even get through one game, you knew he wanted to prove himself badly, you could see it in him in the 1st. What a player. Prayers for a speedy recovery and that this doesn't affect your career.

As far as the Cavaliers, well the uphill battle just gets steeper. This is the finals. No excuses. On to game 2.

Do you not know how momentum works lol one guy stops to make a cut, the other runs into him pretty obvious who takes the brute of the impact.

Right, but Klay didn't know he was about to cut, that's sort of the point of the move. He just happened to be right on him so he didn't have time to move out of the way. I don't even understand the point of your posts in here.

They never stood a chance in the first place for them to "still have a chance".

The series was going to be 5 games tops with Kyrie. Now they'll be lucky if the remaining games aren't all blowouts.
Maybe you missed that part where Cavs lead almost all game and were 1 shot away from winning game 1 at the oracle arena, home of GS, where they were 39-2 in regular season.

The point of my post are this dude said "Not sure there was that much contact, and klay was retreating" to which the vid i posted shows the opposite of both. Now he is saying why wasn't Klay hurt to which i replied about momentum a little reading might help in understanding.

He said it was fairly common contact within a game and you're denying the fact that Kyrie is in fact injury prone.

Most players don't break their knee apart with that level of contact. Clearly it was just the last straw in a cacophony of knee injuries for the kid.

Lmao another guy who doesn't understand momentum, yup so injury prone he only played 75 games this season how sad looking at your location makes sense though . Btw Delly dove at knees lmao yup Horford yanking him down totally had nothing to do with that :laugh2: Wonder why we didn't hear of him being a dirty player up until the playoffs ill let you figure that out on your own.

Because nobody cares about a new backup who is just starting to get national attention with the Kyrie injuries and his central role in multiple playoff tussels and/or injuries. Personally, I don't necessarily think he's a dirty player and frankly don't care. But that's his label now.

And sorry to be the bearer of bad news for your boy, but when a kid averages 20 missed games a season over his first 4 years in the league, and battles injury before finally succumbing to it in his only playoff run, he's going to be considered an injury prone player. It's OK though, if he puts in enough work + precautions and is fortunate then he'll be able to shake that label. Curry did.

If you truly don't think that Kyrie's already brittle legs didn't play a part in this final injury, then you're just lost in a sea of ignorance. Obviously he was on the receiving end of this hit and if any of the two will be hurt it's going to be him in that scenario, but I stand by my stance that a healthy leg is able to absorb that contact much better than a broken down Kyrie.

Lol at all these pages of nonsense and debating about NOTHING. I don't wish ill will upon anyone but quite frankly I don't care if Kyrie gets injured, just like I don't care if rose does. It doesn't come as a shock to me whatsoever. It doesn't affect me. It doesn't mean a single thing for this playoff, because while I'm not Nostradamus, I can guarantee warriors still win this series.

This Cavs team consists of Lebron and Kyrie and a bunch of try hards. Delly has done nothing but shown he is in fact a dirty player since game 1 of the playoffs. There's differences between what Klay did and what Delly does. Delly is a scrub who tries really hard to small things and gets caught instigating non basketball situations.

Bottom line, no one likes this Cavs team. No one really likes a single player on this team with the exception of Cavs Fans. Most see right through the homerism. Cavs fans brought this upon themselves just as heat fan did when Lebron ran to them. Your team is not very good, sorry to break it to you. You have the best basketball player alive, but he can only do so much.

I was just scrolling through the rolodex of young 22 year old Kyrie Irving's injury history thus far in his career:

Concussion, sprained right shoulder, broken hand, broken index finger, fractured jaw, hyperextended knee, and a sprained left shoulder. Now, after battling various leg injuries on this Finals run, eventually goes down to a knee injury that will require surgery and months of recovery. Oh yeah, and he missed the majority of his short college career at Duke due to a foot injury.

Sorry dude, if that's not the definition of injury prone, then that phrase has no meaning. All we can hope for is that he does everything in his power to get into peak shape and can return to form for next season while avoiding yet another blow of some sort.

He was dominating before the injury.

This definitely changes the likely outcome of this finals

The rockets kept the first few games close too, how'd that do for them? A 5 game series.

Just because they keep one game close does not mean they have any legitimate shot at winning.

The 2007 cavs kept every game with the spurs close, but everyone in the world knew that series wasn't going more than 5.

I like Delly, Tristan, Shump, Miller and LeBron. I'm not a cavs fan.

Also find Irving fun to watch.

Ill stop arguing after this post since your pulling stats out your *** or can't do basic math. Played 75 games this season, 71 last year, 2012-2013 only season he missed 20 + games sure he didn't get held out more for tank purposes , and his 1st season was lockout season so yeah his played game total looks low still didn't miss 20.

I didn't account for the lockout, so that's my bad. It's also irrelevant. He's missing closer to an average of 15 games a year rather than 20. He also missed most of his career at Duke and was pegged as a high talent, high upside/risk pick on account of that.

His injury history reads like a book, dude. I'm all for you having hope that it's all going to be well and good as a fan of his, but it's not a promising start to his career. And now that he's having his knee cut open, that's only more likely to compound his problems going forward.
