First, I want to be sure to say that if there are significant family reasons for missing the games your team so desperately needs you to play, then do what you must. But, if what we're seeing is the personal implosion of a great player, then I don't get it. I never wanted to miss a game, or a day of work. I would never let my team or myself down. This is what I was born to do and I love doing it. It must not be the same for Kyrie. He just seems to find the "personal" reasons a good excuse to not show up to do what he gets paid to do. To do what fans pay to see him do or to do what his teammates rely on him to do. I just don't get it. I'll share my many reasons. in today's rant.
