NBA Role: offensive superstar Top DOG

One of the top guards in all of basketball, Kyrie Irving can do whatever he wants offensively – a master, ‘rock up, shoot’ guy, we should all be envious of Irving’s isolation instincts; effortless scorer: equally as talented taking the ball to the cup – as he is shooting from downtown – as he is getting to the line – as he is iso’ing & cashing off-balance Js; can take anyone off the dribble, at any time; developing into more of a vocal leader on the floor; very injury prone; defense was a foreign language his first few years – now, Kyrie’s at the “I can understand some of it but can’t hold a conversation” stage; never pressure too tight, or you’re finished: Kyrie handles the rock better than Nawt from Space Jam; when healthy, Kyrie is an unquestioned franchise PG…has the it factor & is clutcher than you or I will ever be
