Default Re: Kyrie is underrated as a first option

idk i feel like boston would be just as good with any decent point guard. he doesn't seem to impact the team as much as i thought he would. besides being clutch in the final minutes.

How fucking retarded are you? The guy said Kyrie was more efficient with LeBron on the bench from '15-'17, which is made up and complete horse shit and I just proved it. Can you even read you stupid shit? Try to follow a conversation before you decide to insert yourself into it.

Kyrie's numbers were also always going to be lower when he was on the Cavs. He was the #2 option behind the BITW and then there was Love as well. Kyrie is the #1 option right now, so he's obviously going to average more points. The biggest difference is, he's not really averaging a lot of assists for a PG in an "incredible" system.

Unfortunately for you, you're wrong as always.

Time of Possession:

Kyrie - 6.7 MPG
LeBron - 6.4 MPG

Average Seconds Per Touch:

Kyrie - 5.65 Seconds
LeBron - 4.37 Seconds

Average Dribbles Per Touch:

Kyrie - 4.87 Dribbles
LeBron - 3.28 Dribbles


Kyrie - 30.8%
LeBron - 30%

In short, Kyrie had the ball more than LeBron and produced much less than LeBron.

Those are the only three who are serious MVP candidates. In that order.

Kyrie's definitely playing differently on the Celtics than a lot of people expected
