    Question for everyone: Do you think the team is playing better because Kyrie is gone, or because shots are going in? (Casspi and Pargo)

    I think it's a bit of both. Better ball movement, but there were so many shots being missed by our bench scrubs (when Kyrie wasn't injured) that they're hitting now.
    I think it's because it takes some time for the coaching staff to figure out the new personnel (including the improvements form existing players). The team will be better when Kyrie returns.

    I think the better ball movement is getting everyone involved, which is in turn causing our role players to play better and hit shots. When the offense flows well, guys knock down shots with better consistency than when they sit around and ball-watch.

    Kyrie Irving (finger) is "probably a couple weeks away from returning."
    Irving has been out since November 17 with the injury, and the Cavs said he'd be sidelined for about four weeks, so he's right in the middle of that timetable currently. With Irving's continued absence, Jeremy Pargo will start at PG with Dion Waiters (ankle) doing a lot of ballhandling when he's healthy.

    NBA 2k is fucked without Kyrie. I usually only play with the Cavaliers online and it's just too much to overcome with Irving out of the rotations.


    I could see if you had a Derrick Rose or Greg Oden type of injury, that they would take you out of the lineup, but 4 weeks?


    Common 2k, this shit is going too far. Some Cleveland kid is depressed, school sucks, he just wants to come home and play his fucking video games, it's snowy outside, he can't get laid, all he wants to do is come home and ball it up with Kyrie. His real Cavaliers are tanking so hard that his eyes cannot even watch the sludge on television. Add Austin and Fred being weird and annoying, and he can only tolerate the digital Cavaliers.


    But for four weeks, 2k has made Irving's injury a real thing, in a video game. What the fuck. If it wasn't bad enough, just when little Cleveland kid comes home to escape into the digital hoops realm, he is reminded that Kyrie's injury is a real thing.


    2K, I think you have taken this shit too far. It's bad enough to live in Cleveland, it's even worse when we're all on extended Irving hiatus.

    No. Apparently he was still limping while jogging after practice today...I think he's still a couple games away.

    Cool, Kyrie's back to hopefully help deliver another L to the Lakers!

    We're driving both our own and the LAL's tanks!
