Challenges Kobe to a game of 1-on-1, breaks hand the next day. That’s the scenario facing Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving who will be out of action until the beginning of training camp after suffering the injury during a “freak accident” at Cleveland practice in Las Vegas. Irving says he will be more careful in the future.
“It was just a freak accident,” said Irving, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 draft. “I am a little disappointed, I have to be more responsible about my health. It was just crazy. It happened so fast.”
