Ex-NFL Lineman — Warns Kyrie Irving … Don't End Up Like Me!

0605-lecharles-bentley-getty-01A former NFL lineman has a STERN WARNING for Kyrie Irving … don’t let the doctors pressure you into coming back early … or you could wind up with an OBLITERATED KNEE!!!!

The man behind the warning is LeCharles Bentley … a former 2-time Pro Bowler who played for the Cleveland Browns … who suffered a pretty major knee injury of his own during his playing days. 

As for Kyrie — the Cavs said he’d been suffering from a “bad case of tendonitis” over the past few weeks and wanted him to play last night. Kyrie’s father had reportedly been pushing for Irving to take it easy. 

Enter Bentley … who added his perspective on social media after the game:

“So the doc tells Kyrie it’s ‘just tendonitis’ … Yea, I tore my patella from having ‘just tendonitis’. I tried to ‘tough it out’… .”

He then posted a picture of what his knee looks like now — and said, “Oh, ‘it just tendonitis’… I’m out, about to go ‘tough out’ this leg workout. Could be worse! #Blessed.”

Bottom line — Bentley says, “Athletes better listen to their bodies, not Twitter & Docs.”
