Kyrie Irving’s new nickname is apparently ‘The Dark Knight’
After fracturing his jaw on Friday night, Kyrie became the next player in line to wear the black, eerie-looking Hannibal Lecter mask for precautionary reasons.
“I look like the Dark Knight with it on. That’s what they’re calling me in the locker room right now, the Dark Knight.”
The Dark Knight almost brought that one home.. S/O @KyrieIrving .. I.. Gets .. Buckets.—

I guess I sort of see it? I don’t know. Is Kobe his Ra’s al Ghul? What I do know is that Irving is looking like a top 5 point guard in the NBA right now (CP3, Westbrook, Rondo, Parker, Irving). Tonight he dropped a casual 41 points (a career-high) to go along with 5 reb, and 5 ast in a 1-point loss to the Knicks at The Garden. He’s the hero Cleveland deserves, but not the one it needs…because he’ll probably end up on the Knicks.
