Kyrie Irving said concerns about his sore right knee were overblown and reiterated that no one is thinking about shutting him down.
"It's funny what the Internet can do for people," Irving said after Friday's game. Irving also said the only way the knee will get better is if he sits out the rest of the season, but he said he's not willing to do that. We appreciate his confidence, but there's still a possibility the decision is out his hands. For now, owners just have to keep rolling him out there and hope he remains in the lineup.
