I love Kemba, but no one beyond a Charlotte or Uconn homer would say Kemba is better than Irving.


You've yet to give a reason as to why Kyrie is the better player.

-very similar stats

-Kemba owned him head to head

-Kemba stays healthy & won an NCAA title

-Kyrie is made of glass & often injured

-Kemba's team is going to the playoffs, negative for Kyrie

I'm no Kyrie fan by any means, but it also helps Kemba that he isn't the best player on his team. Kyrie is, unquestionably.

Why is Irving better? 

 

Better ball handler

Better shooter

Better passer

Bigger

Better scorer

Surprise surprise... All heels fans are the same. Would rather bash duke and former duke players as opposed to cheer for their team/ former players. Why don't you make a Kendall Marshall praise thread instead of a kyrie bashing thread Batman. Oh that's right, its because you're a worthless waste of space on this and the college basketball former. Go start another thread about K being an overrated us national team coach.

I'm a Tar Heels fan and I'll say no doubt if I was starting a franchise and had to pick kyrie irving or kemba, I'd take kyrie no problem

How far does the Duke hate run for some people?

This is hilarious.

I think he is a bit overrated as well. knockdown shooter and good ball handling.

 

My main questions for him is if he can create easy shots for his teammates?

 

and bigger issue at this point is, Can he stay healthy? 

 

He could turn out to be very good, he has shown it and could be great. He has to stay healthy to be able to do that. Could easily see him as a CP3 type of player.

He couldn't even beat the shitty NYK last night. Really impressive.

I'm looking for highlights of the game but ESPN doesn't have a listing for Kylie Irving vs N.Y. Knicks box score.

I'd take Kyrie. Nothing against Kemba. Like others have said, he's just a notch below. Kyrie just inside the top ten. Probably around 7th or 8th. Kemba just outside.

Kyrie is Melo 2.0, a one man show.

He'll light it up every all star game. But, does crap to make the players around him better.

Kemba is not up to Kyrie's level in abilities but is a better team player.
