Is Irving wearing down?
By Joe Kaiser
Superstars in the NBA typically don't wear down -- they are the guys that can seemingly play forever. So with so much talk these days of Kyrie Irving being an up-and-coming star in this league, should there be concern that he's wearing down?
Cleveland coach Byron Scott mentioned after Irving's 2-for-15 performance against San Antonio last night that it is a worry given the young guard's nagging injuries and busy schedule ahead. Irving is averaging over 35 minutes a game this season, and is expected to take part in All-Star activities in Houston over the weekend.
“I’m a little concerned he’s going to come back tired,” Scott tells The News-Herald. “It’s something we’ll have to look at Monday.”
