It was really more a matter of when, not if, but Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving will be named the NBA’s Rookie of the Year on Tuesday, according to sources.

The award is generally given out prior to the league’s MVP award, which was given to former Cav Lebron James over the weekend.

Irving was in the Bahamas, so he’ll be awarded at a press conference tomorrow.

Tough life.
