Default Did Kyrie peak in 2016 under GOAT leadership?

Kyrie will be in the hall because of GOAT leadership that elevated him. Without Bron he'd be another Kemba Walker.

I'm sure by now even the foreigners streaming this year's playoffs have seen the 2nd round (Boston v Milwaukee) and saw how Kyrie fared on a stacked team without GOAT leadership.

Will we ever see another GOAT leadership peak like we did with 2016 Kyrie?

I keep hearing how people cant succeed under Bron Ball and in the same breathe praise Kyrie for going on a tear under Bron Ball. Which is it?

2018 v 2016 playoff stats please? Regular season? Worse in both?

So he peaked in 2018 and plummeted in 2019?

I thought you were a good poster

Kyrie's always been the same player. All the Cavs had to do was hand him the ball and get the **** out of the way.

Yes I did. Irving got all the shots he wanted, he was simply missing them and his teammates were bricking the open 3s he was creating for them.

He's the modern day Adrian Dantley of PGs. Can't make his team good enough to make the playoffs as the #1 option. Adds minimal impact when joining a playoff caliber team. Also wouldn't have a single AS berth to his career if not for the changing of the AS game format (no more east vs west) and the fact that he had to compete against John Wall and the likes of Kyle Lowry instead of Curry, CP3, Westbrook, and Lillard.

Being a HOFer isn't nearly as prestigious as it once was. After the Dream Team, the floodgates opened for basically everyone: international players/coaches, women. The basketball HOF isn't treated as an NBA HOF as much as the other professional sports like baseball, football, hockey's HOF are basically MLB/NFL/NHL.
