    Here's one of the games to show those who haven't seen it before.

    There are several more aspects of his game which we should respect but this is where I meant to differentiate him with other players. Will there ever be a player that is as CONFIDENT as he was in his shots?

    Let me know what you guys think.

    P.S. I don't really like Kyrie Irving, I respect his game and hes a good player, but I just never liked him. Nonetheless, I do feel Kyrie might potentially be that type of player Agent 0 was.
    I get exactly what you're saying bro but I don't think the rest of the forum does then again this thread is not about Lebron/Knicks/Lakers so yeah you're going to get plenty of hate.

    Back to the topic he was great to watch the man would literally put up 50 point games like it was nothing. Obviously injuries and stupid decisions destroyed his career but in his prime he was probably on of the best stars to watch.

    Arenas pulling a gun in the locker room however is way worse than choking a coach, and brands him as an unstable idiot who's not suitable for the NBA or really for society in general. Seriously, if you think about what Arenas might have been thinking at that moment, you realize he must be a complete moron.

    Sorry not to argue with your thread. Agent zero was a fine player and at one point was almost as good as Kobe, was dominating the East there for a while.
    How the hell is having a gun worse than choking someone?

    Anyway, does everyone remember the time Arenas scored 50 against Portland?
    Dwight Howard is a Top 5 Center of All-Time, no one in this league can touch him.

    The Orlando Magic are a dominant contender and are a better franchise than I ever thought possible.

    Raph12 is always right.

    Arenas is much more of a shooter.

    Anyway, Allen Iverson?

    There are plenty of people just as if not more confident. He shot 42% for his career too. His confidence bordered on delusional

    A score-first PG (or if you prefer, a SG in a PG's body) who shots a low FG% who is given a contract for more than he is work and gets injured and plays himself out of the league? I think the question is: Does the NBA need another Arenas?

    Gilbert was more efficient than Ellis could ever dream of.

    Kyrie has played 85 or so games with 5 game winners. That's a hell of a start to his career, much faster than Gilbert. I tried Googling and seeing how many Gilbert had in his prime season, but was it 5 in a season? And that season came after multiple years in the league whereas Irving is putting up the clutch shots early and often. As his team's talent level increases into the middle contenders, he will have more competitive games and more opportunities for important shots.
