Ric Flair, WWE Hall of Famer, expressed disappointment with Donovan Mitchell’s absence in a crucial playoff game for the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Boston Celtics. Mitchell’s injury kept him out of Game 4 and Game 5, impacting the team’s chances in the series.

“Sore calf? Really?” Flair tweeted. “You would think for 32 million dollars annual salary that you could have participated in the game tonight and represented Cleveland! I’ve wrestled in rotator cuffs, after almost dying from surgeries & airplane crashes, and never missed a match. 

“I could never imagine missing an opportunity to star in a playoff game for the NBA Championship. And you represent Cleveland, so disappointed! Apparently tonight you are taking the night off at the expense of your whole team.”
