A competent offensive will always triumph over a competent defence. How do you stop a player who can double-clutch a layup over a bigger man or spin off a defender and sink a fadeaway jumper?
But seriously, how are you going to utilise that? It’s hard not to be impressed by a player like Kyrie Irving when he’s in the zone.
Making seemingly impossible shots and scoring in spite of the defence his team attempts to put up.
Even yet, that doesn’t make it any easier to swallow a 60-point performance from Irving or any other player.
Similar to Joel Embiid’s 50-point outburst a month ago, that will stick in the Magic’s craw as a reminder of how much work still needs to be done and how far the club still has to go.
The Keys to Keeping Kyrie Irving “Forever” with the Cleveland Cavaliers
He recently made it obvious to Jodie Valade of The Cleveland Plain Dealer that it is extremely premature to even begin discussing his long-term future with the team.
It’s also not the right time to bring up Irving’s contract negotiations. In any case, we are now officially in the midst of the 2013-14 NBA season.
A lot is riding on this guy’s shoulders as he and the Cavs try to make the playoffs for the first time since LeBron James left in 2010.
The emotional wounds caused by James’ “Decision” have obviously left Cleveland wondering about Kyrie’s dedication to the franchise.
The owner of the Cavaliers, Dan Gilbert, who is also responsible for the infamous Comic Sans screed that drove LeBron to Miami, has stated that he “feel[s] good about Kyrie remaining here for his entire career.”
A professional basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets in the NBA since his birth on March 23, 1992, Kyrie Andrew Irving is an American native (NBA).
He was taken with the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA draught by the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he immediately became one of the league’s most talked-about players.
He has appeared in seven All-Star Games and been named to the All-NBA First, Second, and Third Teams. In 2016, he helped the Cavaliers win the NBA title.
