WOW !! See ya later Durant , Kobe x2 , and Harden !

If you guys haven't had a chance to watch this guys games yet because he plays for the Cavs - get League Pass and watch this kid.

He's amazing - that is all.

Yup. Kyrie's game is so polished, and him running a team consisting of Harden, Durant, and Ibaka would be amazing.

Let me be clear, I have full trust in Westy's ability to lead OKC to a championship. I just think Kyrie's ceiling is right around where Westy's is, but that he has a better chance of fulfilling that potential.

Just like Chicago got lucky and got Derrick Rose to be their cornerstone, Cleveland did the same thing with Irving.

Question is if they can put good players around Irving or if they will give him trash like they did to LeBron.

it is a practice, so players aren't gonna give it their all on Defense.. the crosses were really nice either way. Notice how Durant and Harden gave up as soon as they got crossed. In an actual game they'd actually chase after him and most likely give a foul.

best thing about kyrie...in this era of shoot first PGs he seems the most polished. Out of all the players in the Derrick Rose/ Westbrook field he seems the most likely to become a really good pure PG. I feel like he is much more skill oriented than Rose and Westy who are much more about athleticism (which kyrie has as well, though not on their level)

Question is if they can put good players around Irving or if they will give him trash like they did to LeBron.

The thing about that is the Cavs with Lebron got way too good way too quick because of Lebrons overall talent meaning they weren't able to stay in the lottery for a couple years after that to continue to build and the one year they were they got wait for it....Luke Jackson because they thought his shooting could play off Lebron well. They built the entire team around one guy which they will not do now....hopefully. Not to mention Boozer leaving didn't help.

They will be in the lottery again this year and then will have another young piece with KI to continue to grow together.

Also they will be in the top 3 next year of salary cap so throw that in with 2 first round picks and they will be able to grow with KI. Just need to watch out for these olympics and fiba tournaments where other players will be trying to recruit him.

The biggest thing the Cavs have going against them is...Cleveland. Since the new CBA has completely failed already and every major market is collecting their own BIG 3, the trend will continue and I have a hard time believing that Cleveland will be a "destination" for the next one. Even Dallas has a hard time getting people to go there when they have a ton of cap space. I hate to say it, because loyalty is non-existent, but enjoy him while you can Cavs fans...he'll be gone in a couple years.

Thats why they are trying to build through the draft like OKC and then add key veterans to go with their youth. You are correct about them not being a destination spot for FA's but if they are able to hit on their draft picks as they should probably have another lottery pick next year and if Waiters turns out to be what they expect him to be then they can all grow with each other and the Cavs can extend them b4 they get to FA. A lot of ways to build a team besides just going out and getting your Big 3 through FA even though that does seem the easier way to do it now.

Its funny how people are just starting to catch on. You obviously havent seen a single Cavs game all year, have you? He makes people look stupid on a regular basis when theyre defending him to the best of their ability. This is nothing out of the ordinary. And if its so easy, why is no one else in that practice doing anything besides maybe Blake dunking a few times?

If Kyrie left to go to Miami id probably shoot myself in the face. The kid is easily my favorite player right now and might take over AI for my favorite of all time when its all said and done.
