Found January 27, 2013 on Sharapova's Thigh:
20-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving is having an awesome second campaign in the NBA, and he's been especially awesome over the last week. In the last week, when Irving was also named to his first All-Star Game, he cored 40 points (16-24 FG, .667%; 7-7 FT) in a win against the Celtics, 35 points in a win against the Bucks (12-17 FG, .706%; 9-9 FT), and 32 points (13-26 FG; 3-

What Kyrie Irving Making the All Star Team Means for the Cavs Rebuilding Stretegy

Kyrie Irving in his second season has amassed high critical acclaim. Rookie of the year award, MVP in the rookie vs sophomore game, and now his first all star appearance. Irving is a special talent no doubt, if he can avoid the injury bug, his ceiling is as high as any young star with potential. However, what does this mean for the Cavs and their rebuilding strategy. The Cavs are...

Cavalier Film Room: Smash Mouth Kyrie Irving

When we last got together, I was pretty hard on Tyler Zeller for his poor defensive rebounding. This week, given the performance and news last night, it’s a must to further break down All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving’s second 40-point performance of the season. Kyrie scored 40 while taking just 24 shots as he willed the young Cavaliers to victory over the veteran Celtics, a...

Kyrie Irving Hits Game-Winning 3 vs. Raptors

Kyrie Irving hits his 5th career game-winner to give the Cavaliers a 99-98 win over the Raptors Saturday night:

Young and hungry, Kyrie Irving is Cleveland’s new All-Star

Kyrie Irving received something on Thursday night that he thought he’d never get in his life. No, it wasn’t his selection as an All-Star reserve for the Eastern Conference, an inevitable stepping-stone for the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year 1 . Nor was it the designation as Pro Athlete of the Year at the 2012 Greater Cleveland Sports Awards, the first for a Cavalier since LeBron...

Irving scores 35 as Cavs rally for win

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Kyrie Irving scored 35 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied from a 20-point deficit in the third quarter to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks 113-108 on Friday night. Irving, voted an Eastern Conference reserve for next month's All-Star Game in Houston on Thursday, scored 16 points in the third quarter to help Cleveland get back in the game. He added eight points...

Kyrie Irving deserves to be an All-Star starter

The Rajon Rondo ACL injury was a major disappointment on Sunday.  The NBA—especially its postseason—is a markedly better product with Rondo involved. When healthy, his unique skill-set has the ability to change the outcome of not only playoff games but also an entire series on a moment's notice. Something we are certainly well aware of as Cavaliers' fans. ...

On Kyrie's All-Star selection and Tristan's Bobblehead night

I was old enough to remember how rare it actually is to employ an NBA All-Star in Cleveland. Otherwise, maybe he would’ve been right. Maybe I would have been spoiled by the last great All-Star to wear Cleveland across his chest. I appreciated his brilliance then, though, just as much as I appreciate Kyrie Irving’s now. Irving’s inclusion on the 2013 All-Star team...

Kyrie as the franchise guy

Youre starting an NBA franchise from scratch and you own the third pick. Who do you take? Heat start LeBron James has been chosen No. 1. That makes sense. Hes a three-time league MVP and the games best player. Thunder forward Kevin Durant goes second. Hes the second-best player, a scoring machine and still only 24 years old. So, who do you take? Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving,...

Cavaliers 99, Raptors 98

TORONTO -- Kyrie Irving scored 32 points, including the winning 3-pointer in the final second, as the Cleveland Cavaliers came back to defeat the Toronto Raptors 99-98 Saturday before a crowd of 18,820 at Air Canada Centre. The Cavaliers, who trailed by as many as 11 points in the game, got 17 points off the bench by Marreese Speights and 14 points from Toronto native Tristan...

A Damn Good Week..

    In the post decision era Cavs fans have had to endure a lot of terrible weeks.  Weeks where key players sustain injuries, losses mount, and the growing pains of rebuilding an entire franchise takes its toll.  I could go out on a limb and say this past week was the best in our new “Post-Decision” era and hopefully is the sign of many more to come.   We...

Weekend Recap, Featuring… Everything.

Cavaliers 99, Raptors 98 ***It wasn’t looking good for the Cavs with less than 50 seconds to go.  Kyrie Irving had turned the ball over, missed a layup, and displayed his frustration by putting his hands on his knees and watching as Dion Waiters bricked a long jumper.  Meanwhile, the Raptors exploited a defensive breakdown to take a two-point lead on an Amir Johnson dunk.  Following...
