Kyrie Irving Good for Cavaliers - It ha basically been set for Kyrie Irving to become part of the Cavaliers lineup. Of course it ins’t official yet, but people are pretty confident in assuming the No. 1 overall will be for Kyrie Irving to go to the Cavs. Despite it being unofficial people are already comparing the two stars, James and Kyrie Irving.
As the country watched the 2011 NBA Draft and the Cavaliers retrieving the No. 1 overall pick, LeBron James had this to say, “It’s great for their team, great for the franchise and great for the fans. That’s all I can really say about it. I’ve got more to worry about right now than the lottery but it’s a good step for them.”
Unfortunately for the Duke point guard, Kyrie will most likely be linked to LeBron for quite some time. While this is true because the break between the LeBron and the Cavaliers was so recent, Kyrie shouldn’t be compared to the “King”. It’s not fair for Kyrie; he is a completely different player in a different position.
Kyrie also had something to say about the expect No.1 overall pick and the Lebron James association. Kyrie states, “I don’t think you can make comparisons to me and LeBron. One, I’m not 6-8. Two, I’m not a high flyer and three, my name isn’t LeBron James. Honestly, you can’t make those comparisons yet. I think I would bring a different feel to the Cleveland organization if they do decide to take me.”
