CLEVELAND — Turns out, Kyrie Irving didn’t have a flu bug. He had bed bugs.
Following Monday’s loss to Detroit, the Cavaliers star guard said he left Sunday’s nationally televised game against the Thunder because he was shaken up after being bitten in his hotel room and not sleeping.
“As you can see I got it at the top of my head, it’s just like bed bugs and I didn’t get any sleep,” Irving said, showing reporters evidence of his encounter with the little critters. “We came into the game, then I was freaked out, then I started feeling nauseous.”
