Cavs Cavs to shut down Kyrie?

From Cavs beat writer:

Bob Finnan ‏@BobCavsinsider
Bombshell at Cavs practice: Cavs consider shutting Kyrie Irving down for a while. Irving said knee bothering him


Man, the Cavs sure know how to tank!

Watch them get another top lotto pick and leapfrog us into the playoffs next year. All Kyrie needs is a little more help.

The Raptors' idea of tanking is shutting down JV and Ross in favor of Alan Anderson and Bargnani.

Raptors idea of tanking we saw last year when we won couple of meaningless games to drop us down a few spots.

This year, we arent tanking as there is no reason to while OKC has our pick.

Either way Cavs are doing the right thing for their organization at this point. It just sucks that it also affects some other teams as some fighting for playoff spot/position will pick easy wins that other teams didnt get earlier with Kyrie playing. But then again real injuries have similar effect.

Cavs plan:
1)Tank the rest of this year without Kyrie
2)Get nice lottery pick
3)Sign LeBron next off-season

Quote me on that..

They beat us even without Kyrie, so we deserve what we have

We should shut down Lowry, Rudy, and Amir so we can outtank the Cavs (and play Ross + JV 30+ minutes a game)!

No no no no, Rudy and KtripledoubleLowry are on my fantasy team, they must continue to build chemistry on court for the next season with new coach that's at NBA's level

We should be tanking anyways.... if we give a better pick to OKC, who we aren't competing with on a serious level anyways, that would knock the lesser teams that we are competing with down a peg! Genius.

Help OKC but make the others get a shittier pick!

Maybe Stern finally likes us and will give us a top 3 pick in the lottery!

What? You're crazy. Dude, a top three pick now or an unprotected pick in 5 years? You take the top pick now, even in a weak draft.

I hope Stern has no problem fining them for this if it's any more than a game or two. It's a blatant tanking tactic and they know it. If Kyrie can play he should play; people pay to see the players play.
