The Cleveland Cavaliers are approaching relevancy, just outside of a .500 record. They're sitting at 6-7, probably higher than many figured they'd be at this point in the season, and they have Kyrie Irving to thank for most of their relative success. He's been playing extremely well, much better than anyone expected for a player who is just 19 years-old. In a few years, he could be one of the best players in the league.

And at such a young age, he's receiving votes for the 2012 NBA All-Star game, though he doesn't lead his position. It doesn't help that the list of guards in front of him are all insanely good and hugely popular. Irving has 53,300 votes for the game, but he's got a long list of guards ahead of him that include Dwyane Wade, Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen and Deron Williams. Derrick Rose leads that voting with 1,040,210 votes for Eastern Conference guards.

Still, it's a good thing to see if you're a Cavaliers fan. The latest update from the NBA can be found here.
