The Cleveland Cavaliers struck gold for the second time in less than a decade when they drafted Kyrie Irving with the first pick in the 2011 NBA draft. Like former Cav LeBron James before, Irving convincingly won Rookie of the Year while simultaneously silencing critics and transforming a franchise.
This age has been considered the "Era of the Point Guard," as there are multiple All-Star caliber point guards, more than ever before. Looking at every elite team, almost every one has an elite point guard or elite point guard-like player.
Cleveland may have the next elite point guard in Kyrie Irving.
