Recommendation: Irving was back at the Cavaliers' practice facility Monday, playing five-on-five for the first time since breaking his hand in practice July 14. The 20-year-old point guard said winning the Rookie of the Year award last season "was just a stepping stone," and that "Now the real work starts. You have to continue to get better every single year." Since the NBA lockout delayed the start of last season, Irving is about to experience his first true training camp. "We are still trying to find our chemistry right now," Irving said. "But I definitely do feel like we have a lot of talent on this team."
