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. @msareolabrown twitter.com/StilettoJill/s… — Jill Munroe (@StilettoJill) December 25, 2012 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: That was not me posting that I’m really sorry fans, good night — Kyrie Irving (@KyrieIrving) December 25, 2012 I’m really appalled to see that!! Smh what the Internet can do now a days, good night smh man! — Kyrie Irving (@KyrieIrving) December 25, 2012 Once again I’m sorry for that everybody, I would never post something like that, hope y’all have a very special Christmas, happy holidays!! — Kyrie Irving (@KyrieIrving) December 25, 2012 Why was he so panicked? It seems like he didn’t want the word getting back to his girlfriend: Would never post something like that, especially when I have my wife @nataagataa, crazy!!! — Kyrie Irving (@KyrieIrving) December 25, 2012 Kyrie’s girlfriend goes by the name Natalia on Twitter. Based on her Twitter feed, it looks like she’s in Brazil for Christmas. If you’ve seen her, you’ll understand why Irving was trying hard to protect his neck — she’s a keeper: One more selfieeeee twitter.com/NataaGataa/sta… — Natalia(@NataaGataa) December 22, 2012 Kyrie is the same guy who got himself into a big mess with “Miss Hawaii” last year. He really needs to work on that part of his game.
