Irving's Sophmore season: 14-34 so far

Durant's Sophmore season + Goatbrook's rookie season": 11-37 first 48 games

How come Goatbrook wasn't able to carry Durant's ass to a better record?

well when you consider that the cavs trusted lebron (lebrons better then kyrie) to carry them to a championship and it didnt work out can youu blame them for thinking one star player isnt good enough to win? they are trying to build a winner not sign a bunch of crappy free agents with no star potential. so they need to draft. to draft another good player or two they need to tank.

I see what you did there. Since you had no argument comparing thunder success in goatbrooks 2nd season as opposed to cav success in kyries 2nd season, you compare it to goatbrooks rookie year

Kyrie is nowhere close to bust. You can question his effect on the team but he's far from a bust. If the cavs suck for another 5 years while kyrie is here, maybe most ppls opinions will change though.

I was comparing second year Durant to Irving. Westbrook vs Irving was never a necessary comparison.

Also 2nd year Westbrook would involve a 3rd year Durant. Third year Durant is certainly better than all of Kyrie's supporting cast added together.

Why is Durant being talked about as the "supporting cast?"

Westbrook, as good as he is, is a part of Durant's supporting cast... Not the other way around.

Sorry dude, when you reply to budadii I think it's automatically a goatbrook discussion. So you feel as if 3rd year kyrie led cavs can succeed. We'll see. And then you can trade the entire rockets roster for kyrie if they don't.

if he can't help the team win but only fill the stats, he'll just be another marbury.

Richesly talking about busts because he's so used to the Hawks drafting a lot of them.

Dude is a top 5 point guard this season, by no definition is he a bust. and if you question his ability to help his team win, I guess the games you're watching are the cavs 5-5 practice games.

He might occasionally have a dumb hero ball type quarter but more often than not the guy helps his team win. And the hero ball thing is a part of growing up and maturing. He's already a ridiculously talented player, and he'll add more to his game.
