Historic Hotel’s Bedbugs Sideline Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving did not sleep tight because the team hotel did let the bed bugs bite Saturday night.

“Our team said I was out with flu-like symptoms,” Irving confessed to the media Monday night about his absence from Sunday’s game against the Oklahoma. “It was honestly from the bed bugs from the frickin’ Hilton that we stayed at.”

The Cavaliers stayed at the oldest hotel in Oklahoma City over the weekend. Five years ago, the New York Knicks blamed a loss to the Thunder on a ghost who haunts the Skirvin Hilton Hotel, which opened four years after Oklahoma entered the union. But although the Cavs lost their point guard they didn’t lose the game.

A spokesman for the hotel confirmed to ESPN that a company brought in to address the matter did indeed find bedbugs but he insisted that it was an isolated case. Irving showed his bite marks to the media to illustrate the fight he waged against the tiny nuisances.

“Just imagine how freaked out you’d be if you saw friggin’ five, big-ass bed bugs just sitting on your pillow,” Irving told the media after Monday’s loss to the Pistons. “I woke up itching, and I’m just looking around, and I’m like, ‘Are you serious right now?’ It was 3 a.m., and I was so tired at that point.”
