According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving will not play tonight as he “ramps up his conditioning”. Sounds like he partied himself out of shape, and is now slated to miss his seventh consecutive game since January 5.
That four-year, $136 million contract looks worse by the day.

For those keeping track, Brooklyn has only played 14 games, so essentially Kyrie attends work half the time. If you remember half days your senior year of highschool–Kyrie is living that dream for $500,000 a day.
What’s clear is that Kevin Durant made a nonsensical decision to pair up with Irving at all, but at least Brooklyn found a way to acquire James Harden to play in Kyrie’s role. We should expect misfit Kyrie Wednesday night in Cleveland to give the world their first glimpse at the KD-Harden-Irving trio.
Kyrie only has to make it another 48 hours without doing anything stupid to derail that. What could go wrong?
