Even if Kyrie does not play a single minute. To have him practicing with the team (hopefully soon) and sitting on the sideline dressed to play will be a huge emotional boost to our guys. I don't think they will see him as a crutch, but as rocket fuel. I laugh when I read things about his being somehow a distraction or how having Kyrie play (even for five minutes) is a detriment to the team. Remember, this is a kid who is going to be, most likely, the first pick in the draft and we have a guy name Mike Krzyzewski coaching the team.
