Kyrie Irving brushes off Lebron James comparisons
 
Quote:

CHICAGO (AP)—Duke point guard Kyrie Irving brushes off suggestions that he might be the Cleveland Cavaliers’ latest savior.

The consensus No. 1 prospect in next month’s NBA draft is aware of comparisons with LeBron James(notes), whose controversial departure last year for the Miami Heat sent the Cavs into a tailspin.

“The comparisons will come regardless,” said Irving, who played 11 games as a Duke freshman and then declared for the 2011 draft. “That’s something I’m prepared for. As for right now, I just want to contribute to whatever team I go to.”

Cavs will be retarded if they take Irving over Derrick Williams.

If the Cavs really feel that Williams and Irving are that close, they can get both without giving up the farm. It doesn't have to be one or the other.
