Not better than Jordan but def better than Kobe , at least as a scorer. Defensively Kyrie is not as good as Kobe was when Kobe actually played defense but Kyrie is so much more efficient on offense that it becomes a close call in favor of KYRIE.. I think the Cavs were stupid they had Kyrie for 2 more years. I would have made him play this year out.. They pretty much lost Kyrie for Crowder who Lebron always killed in the playoffs. The Cavs should have gotten Brown who is a stud offensively and defensively ..


With the current Celts they have some really young talented defenders in brown and smart. And they have Horford who is making a case for DPOY ..

Never ever compare anyone to the GOAT. Just never.

I'm thinking of AI comparison to Kyrie. Before I was hesitant to compare the two but seeing Kyrie flourish as the main man in a team, dude can score at will just like prime AI.

If I were to cure a schizophrenic of their multiple personality disorder they would be grateful. But when I help you by getting rid of a few of your alts you just complain. It's like you have no appreciation whatsoever.

Don't insult Kyrie by comparing him to Jordan, he's clearly on another tier as a player

Michael Jordan is better than Kyrie Irving both offensively and defensively.
