Cavs’ Thompson Thinks Irving’s Health is Key
(Kyrie) Irving has certainly proved himself, as the 21-year-old already has picked up a Rookie of the Year award and an All-Star Game bid. The only thing standing between him and superstardom appears to be injuries, which have limited him to 110 games through two seasons.
“The key will be for Kyrie to be healthy,” said (Tristan) Thompson. “He’s been working on his body the entire summer so that he can be well and that way he can assure himself of playing 82 games. He’s a key to our success and I’m happy because he’s healthy now.”
