Kyrie Irving: I Just Don't Have It Right Now

May 22, 2015 1:32 AM

Kyrie Irving is battling an injured foot and knee, severely limiting his effectiveness.

"I just don't have it right now," said Irving.

"The most frustrating thing is seeing holes in the defenses that I'm used to attacking," he said. "I tried to make one move and I accelerated and then I stopped and passed it."

 

With his mobility limited, Irving may have to rely on jumpers.
