Default How good do you think Kyrie thinks he is?

I think Kyrie believes hes as good as Westbrook/Harden etc



Which is ridiculous





Does Kyrie know impact wise using RAPM and PER hes not even an all-star caliber player?




Does Kyrie know Delly was a better +/- than him back in 2016?



Does Kyrie know hes the worst defensive guard in the league?

He's good, but what exactly does he want to do? People say he's jealous of somebody like Lillard and I'm thinking, really? Lillard? What is there to be jealous of?
If anything everybody is jealous of Kyrie and all the exposure he gets for playing with Lebron and going far in the post season.

Eh, PER wise he's absolutely an All-star level player. He's on the lower end but he's a legit all-star.

Thing is he's not better than Harden and Westbrook, and those guys can't even get out of the second round. I understand believing in yourself but there's also too much belief in yourself to the point where you have no self-awareness.

If all of this is about getting his ducks in a row because he knows Lebron's leaving then that's understandable. If this is about wanting to be the star he's misguided. I agree with the guy above. He's looking at others like Westbrook, Harden and Lillard with envy because they're the stars of their team but those guys are likely looking at him with jealousy because Kyrie's getting to the Finals. You think those guys wouldn't kill to be getting to the Finals?

Without Lebron, Kyrie is 0/0, probably 0/0 in the playoffs as well.

The Cavs have been terrible whenever Irving plays without LeBron. Irving's scoring in those minutes has soared anyway, in part because he never stops shooting. Over the past two seasons, Irving has jacked about 26 shots for every 36 minutes he plays without James, per NBA.com. Only six players have ever topped 25 field-goal attempts per 36 minutes in any season, and only one of them -- Wilt Chamberlain -- did it twice. Even Kobe Bryant never pulled it!


Meanwhile, Irving's assist numbers in those minutes barely ticked up.

That sample obviously captures Extreme Kyrie. But if that is the sort of player he hungers to be, he will never win big. Nobody wants to play with that guy, especially when that guy gives you very little on defense.
