Kyrie Irving and the Importance of Player Safety (Visual Resource)

As many fans, athletes and exercisers may have observed, an unusual amount of NBA All-Stars suffered season-ending injuries this season, with Kyrie Irving being the latest after sustaining a broken kneecap in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
