OAKLAND Drue Tranquill Limited Jersey , Calif. 鈥?The news of Kyrie Irving's fractured left kneecap hit the NBA Finals with a fury on Friday. Same story, different player.
Basketball is breaking people, and it's doing so at an alarming rate.
What promised to be one of the league's best season-ending showcases in years is now a complete dud. With the Cavs missing Kevin Love and Irving, not to mention Anderson Varejao, is it over in four games or five? Well Nasir Adderley Limited Jersey , that depends.
At this pace, how many games will the Cavs and Warriors have enough players to finish?
The carnage doesn't begin or end with the Cavs, who now face the virtually impossible task of trying to dethrone the team with the NBA's best record without two of their three best players. Nobody wishes any ill toward anyone on the Golden State side, but it would seem that the Cavs' best (and perhaps only) strategy is just to extend the series as long as possible because you never know who will go down next.
It might be someone on the other side.
