Sports Unbiased Staff G.F.R. Analysis
Keith Rivas – A healthy Kyrie Irving is so important to the Cleveland Cavaliers and professional basketball. So important, in fact, that had he not been required to seek medical attention during the NBA Finals and gotten to the point where he physically couldn’t take anymore we probably would have witnessed a different championship team.
But that’s all history, now. Irving will enter next season with nothing but vengeance and alongside LeBron James he could prove to be part of one of the best Batman & Robin combinations this part of a generation.
Ben Buchanan – Kyrie is one of the most polarizing figures in all of professional basketball. He creates tons of highlights whether it’s hitting a buzzer beating 3, or a killer ankle breaking crossover Kyrie will certainly get his fame. Kyrie was the 2014 All-Star game MVP, and the FIBA MVP so he can certainly ball out. He finished 2015 with 21.7 points per game and 6.2 assists a game – both career highs.
Steve Turner – Kyrie Irving really is something else. Irving is so gifted offensively and his hustle on defense is incredible. He arguably has the best handles in the game and has the ability to make his defender look straight up silly. The greatest part about this guy is how young he is.
There is so much more time for him to grow and he’s already shown the league that he’s a force to be reckoned with. It’ll be very interesting watching Uncle Drew learn and grow in his years to come.
Sauping R. Arguello – Irving is one of the most gifted offensive point guards in the NBA. His shooting is top notch and he can get anywhere on the floor he wants with his creative dribble. He is still adjusting to playing with LeBron James who dominates the ball for the majority of games.
