I agree that we should give it a few years... or at least see how Dion looks on the next level, but the whole "starter" thing is getting tired. First, he finished games which is always more important than who is on the floor for tip. Second, he played more minutes than the guy who started at the 2. Third, the guy who most people point to as the best player on the board-- Thomas Robinson -- didn't start until his junior year and never played close to the minutes that Waiters did during his freshman and sophomore seasons.

It is a non issue.

How did this thread become Kyrie vs. Tyreke? This should be 8 pages of calling PleezeBelieve a ****head not statistical comparison. Anyone who wants info on Dion come to me and obviously I'm a Kyrie stan so I'll try to be objective. Tyreke may have had a more impressive season on paper, but Kyrie led the league in 4th quarter scoring as a rookie (I believe, if not he's up there). That's crazy. Also Irving>Wall and who knows with Dion and Beal so all you should say is it's equal cause Beal was rated higher.

Unfortunately (for us, not Dion) he's been right about Waiters so far, so we'll have to listen to him brag about that one for who knows how long.

All things point to Tyreke having the better year. So please stop overrating Kyrie because he did a commercial.

This guy is sitting at home laughing his --s off. He got many of you. You took the bait and got pissed. He struck a cord with the commercial reference when everyone who knows bball knows the Uncle Drew commercial - while fun - really went nowhere.

Outside of the game vs. the Bulls, he has abused people this year. I was actually sad watching Chris Paul trying to guard him in LA. He penetrates at will, finishes as well as any point guard, is creative, has amazing handles, and is consistent on his jump shot.

empire - good humor. Now...come clean on Kyrie vs. Tyreke. You have people on the edge of the bridge. Prove your sanity...
