Isn't everybody an all star at something?

This weekend, Kyrie Irving is the only Cavalier being recognized as a true All-Star in the eyes of the NBA. Given that the Cavaliers are such a young team, most of them have grown up in a society where everyone is treated as a winner regardless of whether or not that is actually the case. As such, it only makes sense to honor the remainder of the team for their own special talents that make them All-Stars in their own unique ways.


Chris Bosh named starter, Kyrie comes off bench

This isn't really unexpected but Erik Spoelstra made it official on Friday. Chris Bosh will start the All Star Game in the place of Rajon Rondo. Rondo was voted in as a starter in the Eastern Conference, but obviously will not play due to his torn ACL.

It would have made sense for Kyrie Irving to start in Rondo's place. Rondo is a point guard. Kyrie Irving is a point guard. Makes sense, right? But yeah, Spoelstra decided not to do that. Instead, the Heat will have three starters in Chris Bosh, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Kyrie Irving will come off the bench and rain hellfire down on the world to get his revenge, I assume.


What is Kyrie's strategy for the 3-point contest?

Kyrie Irving is competing in the Foot Locker Three Point Contest. This week, he sat down with and talked about his strategy to win the contest.

It's pretty simple: get buckets.
