Kyrie Irving: Irving Plans to Skip On-Court Drills, Should Teams Be Concerned?
Kyrie Irving Will Skip Tests and Drills at NBA Combine
Now that the NBA Draft Lottery is over, the next thing on tap is the NBA Draft Combine and apparently highly regarded prospect Kyrie Irving doesn't plan on showcasing his skills there.
Instead, Irving just plans on showing up to get medical tests done.
I'm just going doing medical here. There's no particular reason. I'm still working out around here (privately) but I'm not doing anything at the combine.
Is it the right move for Irving?
Probably. As a prospect expected to go in the Top 2, he can only hurt his stock more by performing poorly at the combine.
But should teams be concerned?
Yes, they should be. In fact, If I were the Cleveland Cavaliers I'd think twice about drafting this kid.
Irving has only played 11 games in college and has only flashed potential in only limited stints.
The young point guard has shown that he can be a dynamic player and excellent playmaker when he played but the truth is he wasn't much of a difference-maker for the Duke basketball team last year.
He played in limited games and even with his nagging toe injury, the Blue Devils still ended the year with the ACC championship and locked down a No. 1 seed for the tournament.
Irving is a young talent but he's probably fool's gold at No. 1. If the Cavalier wants a more proven product, they can take Pac-10 Player of the Year Derrick Williams at No. 1 and go for the star of the NCAA Tournament, Kemba Walker at No. 4.
