From Larry Brown Sports:

Kyrie Irving's game on the floor is developing nicely, but his pimpology off of it needs some work. The reigning NBA Rookie of the Year had to do some damage control on Twitter after a picture of him with his arms around two girls appeared online for a brief period early Christmas morning.

Our friend Stiletto Jill snagged it while it was up, and she says it was posted to his Instagram account.

The photo was quickly deleted, but Irving acted swiftly as if he had been busted and began trying to clean up his tracks. The Cavaliers guard tweeted the following messages:

Why was he so panicked? It seems like he didn't want the word getting back to his girlfriend:

Kyrie's girlfriend, whom he affectionately called his wife in the tweet, is Natalia Garibotto. Based on her Twitter feed, it looks like she was in Brazil for Christmas. If you've seen her, you'll understand why Irving was trying hard to protect their relationship -- she's a keeper:

Luckily for Irving, Garibotto didn't seem to mind the photo:

Kyrie should be thankful he found someone so understanding.

Irving is the same guy who got himself into a big mess last year with a woman who calls herself "Miss Hawaii." He really needs to be more careful with what he's doing off the court.

  • Man, I'm a prude and can't see anything racy with that picture. What am I missing?
  • Any real surprise here I mean really a NBA player Ho-ing around Guess in 9 months when one of the girls post pictures with the caption Love child of... You can take the rat out of the hood but never the hood out of the rat... didnt learn the first couple of times well guess what
  • But you can't take the stupid out of silly, know everything, perfect hypocrit internet posters that have not accomplished anything worth mentioning in their lives like you.

    He at a party hugging two girls for a photo. Big deal only to a troll like you when you see a black face.
  • Just a Pic why make ghetto remarks
  • Then get off the computer and your lazy but and go make a few millions for yourself. Stop complaining about other peoples money. I'll bet you spend money on crap also but the only difference is, you are not important enough to warrent a story on you. lol
  • In the immortal words of that famous philosopher, Forrest Gump, "Stupid is as stupid does." Sports figures and other celebrities would collectively do themselves a BIG favor by staying off of Facebook, Twitter, etc. On the other hand, I might also ask myself why I'm wasting my time reading dumb columns like this? Hmmm........
  • Fk Duke!
  • And why didn't he go to Brazil with his "wife" for Christmas?
