Not sure how to embed YouTube videos on here but man is he going to be special.

There simply aren't enough superlatives to describe this kid so you're just going to have to watch that yourself.

LeBron and Durant are probably the only players I'd have ahead him at the moment.

"But I'll say this: When they're replacing you with Ramon Sessions for defensive purposes, that might be a sign you have work to do. As good as Irving was on offense, he was a horrifying, flaming train wreck on defense. Synergy rated him the worst defensive player in the league with at least 300 plays defended, opposing point guards ripped him for a 19.0 PER according to 82games.com, and the Cavs gave up 5.0 points per 100 possessions more with him on the court -- even though his usual replacement, Sessions, was himself among the league's most flammable point guards."

Fantastic offensively, but plays some Uncle Drew defense.

He's making the offensive jump DRose failed to do so in his 2nd year, and he's still efficient.

This guy is going to be scary offensively.

But for him to take the next step, he needs to be a better playmaker AND improve defensively.

Offensively he might be already the best or most complete PG in the NBA. He has the explosion that CP3 lacks now.

He is simply ridiculous in the 4th quarter.

He already is scary offensively.

Dude's a Kobe (with no D) on offense. A lot of players standing around on the offense waiting for a pass. You just know he's gonna shoot it when he has the ball most times. Still love him though.

Damn, that Cleveland team sucks.

Irving's got to learn how to win and lead his team. For now he's just another Kevin Love with nice stats. All flash, no substance.

In 2/3 years maybe. For now though, calm down lol.

Probably a top 5 pg at the moment though. Paul, Westbrook, Rose, Rondo then Irving in my opinion.

Not top 5. Top 6 maybe.

The top 5 players all wear Rockets red.

He's not top 5 yet. He's just too terrible defensively.

Hard to say he is top 3-5 in NBA when his team is so bad and he is possibly the worst defender in the NBA.

Second best pg behind CP3. Yea he plays no defense, but defense is much less important at the guard position and offense is much more important.

Luke Walton gets minutes for them. Cavs have the worst bench in the NBA and aside from Varejao who's been unbelievable this year and an extremely raw rookie in Waiters their starters aren't that much better.

Who cares about defense at the PG position? He simply isn't athletic enough to stay in front of the elite 1's in this League. Not many players in this league can.

He's a two guard playing the one. He reminds me of Allen Iverson. Not as fast, but with a better shot.
