As you know, the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Golden State Warriors in six games in the NBA Finals. Would the series have had a different result for Cleveland had Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love not been injured? According to the 23-year-old point guard, it certainly would have:
“I’m more of the voice of reason,” Irving said while talking on The Big Podcast with Shaq. “I’m always going to be a straight shooter with everyone and give them my honest opinion. Obviously, we have a great thing in Cleveland, and we dealt with everything together.
“I feel like we definitely would have won an NBA championship if we had everyone healthy,” he said. “But almost doesn’t count.”
