Kyrie Irving: Can Kyrie Irving Revitalize the Cleveland Cavaliers?
Kyrie Irving Will Be the Top Pick in This Summer's Draft, But Can He Turn Cleveland Around?
It's not going to be easy to be Kyrie Irving.
This is a kid who barely played in his only season at Duke and now, he's going to be the top pick in the draft, heading to a city that is still reeling from LeBron James' decision to leave for Miami, and now he's going to be the face of the franchise.
That is not a position that most players could thrive in. Now, of course he's going to have another top pick next to him when Cleveland uses the fourth selection on another player, but this is a kid who is going to have the weight of the world on his shoulders.
When I look at Irving and I look at the Cavaliers, I look at a marriage that could work from day one.
Think about it, he's going to show up and play in a lineup with himself, Antawn Jamison, Anderson Varejao, J.J. Hickson and another young star player, possibly Enes Kanter.
You could certainly do worse for your first lineup than that.
Irving will have tools in the lineup and he's going to be able to help lead this team to more wins than it has last year, that's for sure. The young point guard will have things to work on, but he has a world of talent and a great ability to find the open man.
He will have reliable teammates and the Cavaliers are going to be a much better group than we saw this year on the court.
I'm not saying this team can be a playoff contender, but it's a group that can certainly make a little bit of noise and finish at the bottom of the lottery.
For the Cavaliers, that's a big step in the right direction.
