Last years #1 pick vs this years #1 pick. Tied game with about 6 minutes left in the fourth.
I think this might be the Cavs first nationally televised game this year. Kyrie with 7 in a row since checking in a minute and a half ago.
Things I noticed about the game..
Lopez is a respectable C that doesnt get much credit.
Davis is very very weak.
Rivers might have begun figuring out the NBA.
Irving is nasty.
Luke Walton is nasty (not like Kyrie).
Tristian Thompson forces alot.
Waiters has a better jumper than I knew.
Kyrie is too f*cking good. Just had 14 points in 3 minutes showing off his post up game, crazy layups, mid range game, deadly three point shot, and fast break. Hell he even played some defense and drew a charge.
I don't get how someone can elevate his game so much in the 4th quarter. And oh my he just had another sick layup. Unbelievable.
K.I. is the new A.I. I just love watching home score man. Dude is unreal. Does anybody think the Cavs might go the route of the sixers and make Kyrie a 2 guard in the future? I know they have Waiters but I see Waiters as a 6th man on a championship caliber team rather than a starter. Kyrie is already one of the best scorers at 20. Why have your best scorer playing point? He should just score
*love watching him score
20 of the last 24 for the Cavs with 7 minutes left in the 4th quarter. The only other 4 points were from free throws from his teammates. Kid is already one of the most polished scorers in the game.
Got 7 assists as well (should have had more).
I would rather have kyrie on the ball then off it...but maybe for defense it would be better for him to shooting guards ...i dont know i just watch him on high lights and every now and then watch a quarter or two...something tells me when kobe retires ill be watching alot of cavs games..
I think 2 years from now. The cavs will return to being one of the upper echelon teams in the east. They lose one star and gain another
Just as a notice for NBA fans:
If you see there is 7 minutes left in a Cavs game with the score close...try to find a stream of it or something.
Byron Scott never plays Kyrie until 7 minutes left in the 4th and if it's close man will you be in for a treat.
When I said it earlier in the season, I got a few negs for it. I may have jumped the gun a little bit. But I think its safe for me to say it again... Kyrie Irving is a SUPERSTAR. Not in the making. But now! He's there already and hasnt even tapped into 1/4 of his true potential.
He can still have the ball in his hands. Kind of like how Iverson was. Even though they had Eric Snow at the point, he was just there basically lol. Iverson was the ball handler and the scorer. Kyrie is just too talented of a scorer in my opinion
Anthony Davis has looked TERRIBLE. He doesn't set screens well at all and when he does he doesn't roll strongly, he gets pushed around like he's the 10th kid picked in a pickup game, he's non existent on offense, gets blown by when he defends on the perimeter. The only thing positive to say is his attitude on defense and his free throw shooting. Rough rookie year so far.
Something I thought before got on the board: I thought Davis and Gilchrist were perfect antithesis' to Durant and LeBron respectively. Davis has the length and body type only Durant has, and Gilchrist has the size, strength, and speed to match up with LeBron like no one else has. Really cool.
