You're talking about him like he has all kinds of experience and has done this routinely. Irving is a risky pick at #1. He's far from a sure thing. He only played 11 games in college, and most of that occurred early in the season. If you take away games against Princeton and Colgate, then he had 29 assists and 26 turnovers.
