Cavs’ Irving Left Game Due To Bed Bugs
Normally players miss games due to injuries, illness, or suspension. But in the case of Cleveland Cavaliers PG Kyrie Irving, other circumstances can force you to miss time as well. In this case it was bed bugs. Yes, bed bugs.
"Our team said I was out with flu-like symptoms," Irving said. "It was honestly from the bed bugs from the frickin' Hilton that we stayed at."
Irving exited the Cavs win against the Oklahoma City Thunder early on Sunday after experiencing symptoms related to the bed bugs. The bed bugs were reportedly from a Hilton hotel the team stayed at the night before in Oklahoma City after the team beat the Thunder. The particular hotel, the Skirvin Hilton Hotel is the oldest hotel in Oklahoma City, while also having a reputation for being haunted by a ghost named "Effie," who was a former housekeeper in the hotel.
So, note to self: Never stay at a Hilton in Oklahoma City...or any city for that matter.
