Here’s my weird Kyrie take. Vaccine aside, having so many games off this season may actually be helping him health-wise. He’s been a bit injury prone through his career, basically gets hurt like every other year, so having extra time to rest and recovery is a plus, right? – 1:18 AM

Kyrie is now averaging 27.7 PPG. He’d need to average 38.6 in Brooklyn’s final five road games to average 30 on the year. Not likely. Not impossible. I’d say there’s a slim (<1%) chance Kyrie averages the most points per game even though he doesn’t qualify for the scoring title. – 10:08 PM

It’s so insanely unlikely, but a really funny ending to the scoring title race would be LeBron ultimately winning, but Kyrie averaging more points and just not qualifying.

New podcast. Warriors trying to put themselves back together & the questionable pressure campaign underway to lift vaccine mandate for Kyrie Irving (w/@Marc J. Spears & @Kendra Andrews) es.pn/3CLz3Z6 – 10:26 AM

More on this storyline

Nick Friedell: Kyrie says he’s still confident that the vaccine mandate in NYC will get rolled back and he’ll be able to play at Barclays this season. He also says he plans to attend tomorrow’s game — and jokes he’ll wear a media pass. -via Twitter @NickFriedell / March 16, 2022

Nick Friedell: KD “Me and Kyrie had conversations about the vaccine and what it meant to him, meant to me. At the end of the day I didn’t think it was my decision on what he wanted to do with the vaccine. I gave him how I felt about it and we talked about it, but that’s ultimately his decision” -via Twitter @NickFriedell / March 16, 2022

Nick Friedell: KD says he doesn’t believe Kyrie deserves any extra criticism this season for making the decision he made not to get the vaccination. -via Twitter @NickFriedell / March 16, 2022
