INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) Kyrie Irving was already wearing his jacket and a Louis Vuitton backpack as he conducted his final postgame interview.
He seemed in a rush, which was understandable. He wasn't going to the playoffs.
Once Irving finished answering questions, Cleveland's All-Star point guard quickly left the locker room. His third NBA season - one filled with highs, lows and ultimately disappointment - was finally over. The postseason remained out of reach for Irving and the Cavs, who had a turbulent six months together.
